“Delicious pizza and the harmonic knots are amazing. Eat in and take out. Pizza crust is perfect and sauce/cheese taste fresh. This is what pizza should taste like. So good!” ~ Patrick M.

“"We walked in and the amazing homemade pizza aroma at Nani's got me very excited to try their pizzas. We ordered the vegetarian and the blanco pizzas. I especially enjoyed the unique flavors of the Blanco with its alfredo sauce, caramelized onions and the arugula topping. Nani's truly has a hometown pizza joint feel to it. We will definitely be back for more!” ~ Debra C

The food was absolutely amazing! We had the appetizer special for the evening, don't know the name of it, but it was so good. I had the tortellini alfredo, it was made to perfection. My friend had the pizza, I had a little bit of it, been a while since I had crust that tasted so good! Taste like authentic Italian food. I will return, oh yeah, had the tiramisu, highly recommend the tiramisu.

A true hidden gem in the mountains of North Carolina. The food is homemade and absolutely incredible. The handmade pasta and pesto ricotta is to die for. Everything we had (garlic knots, meatballs, calzone and papardelle was amazing and delicious. Would highly recommend.

Update. I visited with friends for lunch today. I have no complaints about the food or service. However, please be aware the prices are quite expensive. 2 small pizzas, garlic knots, tea and a coke was $53. Certainly not a bargain. Fortunately, the food is good. First visit. Certainly not my last. It truly is the best pizza around. I've never had fresher ingredients on a pie. Outdoor seating makes the experience perfect, along with service I've not seen in a while.
