Great, fabulous food. Relaxing atmosphere. Attentive waitstaff.

If you haven't been go!! If for nothing else the bread that they serve (I think I ate 2 baskets by myself). But everything else is worth going for, too!!

The best salad anywhere. And the rolls? You cannot beat them. Love the atmosphere, too. Good selection on the menu. Don't find anything wrong with this place.

This was an up and down experience. The atmosphere was very nice, as was the service. We had never been, and 2 out of 4 of us tried specials reccommended by our server. The other two stuck with traditional baked ziti and lasagna. The specials were excellent, and we cleaned our plates. The lasagna and baked ziti had so much sage, they were not fininshed. After a bottle of wine, appetizers, and 4 entrees our bill was around $200 after tip, and I could have eaten more. Just watch what you order, and ask about the sage, but the rest of the experience was great, as was the wine he server recommended.

Pros: The service and the atmosphere were great, as were the specials of the night

Cons: Lotsa sage. If you dont like overbearing sage, stay away from the ziti and lasagna

Altruda's is a good but somewhat pricey restaurant. The "Frutti di Mare (seafood) section of the menu is especially good, and any of their pasta items are a good choice. An excellent place to stop by if you're in the mood for Italian.

PROS: Very good food.
CONS: High prices.

I think this is the best italian food in Knoxville. I've been to Altruda's numerous times and I always leave happy and full. They bring a bottomless salad before the meal that is very good. The lasagna is also excellent. One of my favorites.

We moved to the Knoxville area in January 2000 and find every excuse to dine at Altruda's. We always say, why pick a different restaurant when we would've only wished we had went to Altruda's instead. Our two young children (ages 5 and 8)

We just had dinner for our 9th wedding anniversary. We had our two little girls with us and the manager gave each of them a dollar for being so good. We loved Altrudas before tonight and now I know this is our Anniversary night dinner
