While this is not the best Italian food I have ever had, it has always been very good. My favorite is the chicken piccata and my wife most often orders the tilapia. My son and I also enjoy the pizza. While service is sometimes spotty, as waitstaff turnover is high, the longtime servers are excellent. It is the value that... More

Have been here multiple times over the years but went tonight and it will be my last. Mediocre service, restaurant itself is showing its age, bathrooms not very clean and food less than okay. I wanted to switch a sauce on my entree but there was a $3.00 up charge, really $3.00? I could understand a dollar or even 1.50... More

I found this place when I first moved to Knoxville. The staff is warm and welcoming, always friendly with excellent customer service. The food is really good for the price. We usually will get either a pizza, pasta or sub and have never been disappointment. Their homemade desserts are incredible (do save room if you can or get it to... More

Although the size of some of the foods have shrunk over the years, it still is a great deal for the money. Custom calzones and pizzas are always delicious. The sub sandwiches have suffered the most, dry and underwhelming compared to what they once were. All in all, still a great place for a decent meal with a delicious (albeit... More

The food and breadsticks are good. Service is also good. I had a salad and pizza and everything was delicious.

We go to the Lenoir city one a bit more but live really close to this location. For the value, the pizza is amazing and the bread sticks are amazing. However, we continue to get poor service. There is a large turn over of servers it seems too. The ones that have been there forever, are really good. And their... More

Traveling through town looking for a good lunch when we stumbled across this place. It is Sunday afternoon, 1:00 to be exact and the place is PACKED! That being said we had our food within 10 mins and the server (Ashley) was excellent! I absolutely was amazed how all the servers worked together and cleared dishes, refilled drinks and carried...

I have been to this restaurant several times; during my travels; and when I can; I plan it around this place for dinner. They have the best Veal Parm I have ever had in my life. The Lasagna too is wonderful. Our boy had the pizza and he said it's better than anything he's ever had; nice and cheesy! If... More

The service was poor. The server got our food order wrong. I had to wait for the correct food with no apology. I thought the manager might visit to see if we were ok, but nothing. This location has really dropped off over the past few months.

I have eaten here so many times and it is always great! The pizza is delicious and the free breadsticks are always good. Save room for desert because their cakes are great also.
