Are you searching for the best Italian food in Knoxville? Merelli’s Italian Restaurant brings to Knoxville some of the most delicious Italian food that the city has seen. Merelli’s is truly an authentic Italian restaurant. We have taken everything we could from Mama Merelli and our multiple trips to Europe. Misty Mills owner and Steven Manolopoulos Managing Partner have taken over the old Labamba space in Bearden and transformed it into an eclectic Italian eatery.
Merelli’s has 4 private dining rooms that fit from 6 to 14 guests in each. A banquet room that fits up tp 50 guests and a comfortable lounge area with a fireplace and TV to relax and have a cocktail while waiting for your friends to join you. Merell’s bosts a beautiful private patio with a full-service bar, waterfalls, and pond where you can enjoy live music on Saturday evenings. Our executive chef Amy Carpenter, Misty, and Myself are excited to have you enjoy us for a unique Italian experience.
