I struggle to put into words what's wrong with Altruda's, but I know I have a hard time finding a lot to like about it. It's incredibly dark. Off-puttingly so. Both Dear Husband and I have to use our cell phones to illuminate the menus...More

This locally owned Italian restaurant has all the ingredients to make it a great place. There is a quaint bar, with a great bartender. The decor is typically Italian and unique. The service is very good, the waitresses are friendly and attentive. Unfortunately our meal...More

Looked good from outside and nice interior design with smaller rooms. However, two tables with screaming kids ruined the whole experience along with not good food. Lasagna was served in a cereal bowl with some sauce, some noodles, some cheese--not good. Spaghetti Carbonara had very...More

We showed up on a Saturday night without reservations and waited in the little bar for about 30 minutes drinking wine. The bartender was friendly and offered to take our group photo. We were seated in a booth in a small room. Although the restaurant...More

I'm on a temporary assignment working in Knoxville and Alruda's is near my hotel. First of all the complementary salad and garlic knots are to die for. I've read the reviews that say Altruda's salad is like Olive Garden's - well there is no comparison....More

My wife and I went here a few days ago for her birthday for the first time. The lights were low and so was the music. A great atmosphere with good service. We both had the rigatoni carbonara and loved it! The bread was good...More

I didn't check reviews before I went so I didn't know what to expect, particularly for a restaurant in a retail strip center. Upon entering, the first thing you notice is it's a little dark, but that's what you expect in better restaurants. We were...More

My wife and I have eaten here for over 25 years. Still the best service and best local Italian. With that being said, tonight I ordered the Polo Amanda. I had never ordered this dish before and probably never will again. The chicken was a...More
