There is something that is so comforting about sitting down and eating a big pile of pasta or the delicious layers of lasagna from an Italian restaurant. Normally after consuming the meal, I will have to take a nap but honestly, I enjoy that part of the process too. Which is why I really liked that someone on social media asked the question, where do you go for the best Italian food around Longview, Texas? 


While I am not an expert when it comes to Italian restaurants in Longview, there were quite a few people that had some really good suggestions so I wanted to put together this list for you including all the suggestions that were made online. While I have to admit I haven’t visited any of these locations as I was doing research on each of them, all of the photos make me really want to create an East Texas Italian Restaurant bucket list.
