Definitely the best Italian I have had in Gatlinburg. Hidden away from tourist traps, it can be difficult to stumble upon but do not be fooled—it is worth the stop.

The food was excellent! I had the chicken marsala with angel hair pasta. My husband had the lasagna. We both left full and happy. The garlic knots were excellent. Our waitress was very attentive.
