Our search for quality pizza in East Tennessee continues… Recently we received a recommendation for Gavino's from another restaurant owner so when we were in the neighborhood and it was time for an early dinner, we gave it a try.

Gavino’s Pizzeria is located in a strip shopping center. It’s a decent sized pizza/Italian restaurant and it was clean plus our waitress was very nice.

Basically there is only one size pizza on the menu although you can order by the slice. That size limitation was a negative in our mind… We decided to design our own pizza. We could add 3 – 5 toppings for $22.95. We stayed with our standard preferences…pepperoni and Italian sausage.

This was a good pizza, albeit a bit pricy. The crust was very good and the ingredients were of a decent quality. We both agreed that the pie was a little short on the pepperoni and sausage. Four or 5 additional pieces of each would have really popped up this pie to another level. In retrospect we should have asked if we could double the meats to get us up to 4 out of our 5 'allowed" toppings…

We will return to Gavino’s for another pizza. Even with the price, single size fits all menu and the ‘toppings’ issues, it was one of the best we’ve found here in East Tennessee.

Our large family met there to celebrate our son's name day. Delish pizza and friendly staff. Our little ones got to see the puzza makers throw the pizza in the air. Fun! Clean place.

I was wondering why the place was so empty during lunch hours. The pizza was below average. It tasted like store bought pizza. I was not impressed and will not go back.

We heard advertisements for the restaurant on the radio so we decided to stop in for lunch when we were in the neighborhood. The restaurant offers pizza by the slice for lunch. We had pepperoni and it was delicious. Give it a try.

We've been searching for a really good Long Island pizza place! Finally, we found it! I must say. .you have to try the Eggplant Rolliatina! They made it fresh for us, without the prosciutto! As vegetarians we were thrilled! Then we ordered the cheese pizza and the Homemade Lasagna! All fresh, you can sure tell the difference! Can't wait to go back! !
