For my whole party ( 4 adults and 3children) who order just normal pasta dishes, a pizza and a few kids meals, it was $130. $ 17 for just 3 stuffed shells. Way to much for the mediocre food. Then we found a hair baked...More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We had fried ravioli, pizza and chicken parmigiana. All were amazing and the garlic rolls were great. Highly recommend.

Marinara sauce was way too watery. Kitchen was not accommodating with a simple request. If this is “the best Italian” restaurant in Gatlinburg, I’d hate to see the worst.
