Savelli's Italian Restaurant

We are a family owned and operated Italian Restaurant, located in Knoxville, Tennessee. A Knoxville staple, we have been located at 3055 Sutherland Avenue for over 20 years. We have a loyal following as well as constantly gain new fans and friends for life after their first Savelli's experience. Dine in the intimate candlelit dining room with the sound of Italy's finest in the background and celebrate among loved ones with your favorite bottle of wine. One of the only BYOW restaurants in Knoxville, we have hosted celebrations with both local and world known celebs such as Peyton Manning and Tommy Lasorda, among many others. We specialize in traditional Italian fare, gas brick oven hand-tossed New York style pizza, sub sandwiches, and our very popular coastal seafood favorites such as Maryland-style crab cakes and Grouper Piccata. We also have a wide selection of vegetarian entrees to satisfy vegetarians. The kitchen is managed by the Owner/Chef Elizabeth Savelli and the Front Of The House managed by Elizabeth's daughter, Kat. Let our family help make your celebration a memorable one.
