When we got there we weren't impressed with the atmosphere, kinda 1970 vibe , dark green vinyl tablecloths and seats but we came for the food. The spaghetti was good and the broccoli chicken alfredo was really good. huge portions and cold beer.

We both had spaghetti and meatballs, such a large order we could have split. Came with a salad, good service. No issues. Spaghetti sauce a bit on the sweet side, but good!

This should be the #1 Italian restaurant in Gatlinburg, but it's easy to overlook. It is tucked away in a little old shopping center, across the street from The Hampton Inn. This is the original location and is much better than the joint in the...More
