Italian Restaurants in Chattanooga

You probably didn’t come here for the Italian food, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised about what’s in store!

Whether you’re looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, or the perfect spot to fulfill a casual spaghetti craving (come on, we all crave pasta, right?)…you’ve got options.

If you’re after a romantic, dimly lit evening in one of the hippest spots in the Southside, you’ll want to head to Alleia for rustic Italian that includes hand made pasta, Neopolitan style pizzas, and more. Or if the weather’s nice, trade in the candlelit vibe and snag a spot on their jasmine-covered patio.

On the other side of the river, you’ve got Il Primo. More delicious handmade pasta, another great patio, delicious cocktails, and stellar service. Don’t sleep on the burrata appetizer, and check the day of the week for unbeatable drink specials like ½ off bubbly night.

And we can’t forget Tony’s! Perched in the Bluff View for more than 20 years, it’s the original destination for handmade pasta in Chattanooga. (Insider tip: glasses of wine are all $5 on Tuesdays.)

We can’t make this decision for you, so good luck and buon appetito—you can’t go wrong.
