Dinner at Savelli’s Italian
Seventh day on my vegetarian diet and I decided to check out an Italian place that came up during lunch the previous day at Dazzo’s – Savelli’s Italian, and I’m glad I did. I ordered the Penne Pasta with Alfredo sauce and it was delicious.
Savelli’s Alfredo is great. It may not be quite as good as Dazzo’s, but it is still head and shoulders above everything else I’ve had in Knoxville. I’m also inclined to patronize Savelli’s a bit more just because the owner’s story is on the menu and it turns out the owner is a single mom raising three daughters. Savelli’s is tiny, probably only 10 or so tables in the place, and several of those only for two people. We went on a Friday night and it was packed by 7pm.
We decided to have dessert and I’m glad we did. I ordered the Cheesecake and Rachael ordered a Chocolate Chip Cannoli.
Both were excellent. The cheesecake especially was very dense and intensely flavorful.
