Don't know how the previous writer could say such a thing. This is the best Italian in Knoxville and has been for a very long time. You don't stay in business for many years and it not be. Delicious food, friendly staff, and ambiance---I have taken many people there and they all love it and it becomes a favorite to them too. It is Italian just like you would get in NYC/Brooklyn. ROCK ON SAVELLI'S!
