“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

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.

Fantastic pizza and fantastic service! This pizza and pasta bar is a hidden gem! Me and my wife had the Blanco pizza which had an alfredo base with roasted garlic cloves, mushrooms, caramelized onions and arugula, and balsamic vinaigrette drizzled on top. Sooo fresh and delicious! 5 stars!!

Best pizza we have eaten!!! We saw the great reviews and needed to check it out. The answer is yes, they have great pizza and the reviews did not lie! We cannot wait to try more. We met the owner and he was very very personable. The wait staff were friendly, courteous, and attentive. Very clean restaurant. This was a great find. Vito's pizza better watch out this place is going to take over the number one pizza spot.

Whether you're a local or just passing through, Nani's is our go-to dinner spot. We eat the salads, garlic knots, and calzones on repeat. The Blanco Pizza is *chef's kiss! We love the cozy feel of dining in or the option to sit outside on warm evenings. Their customer service is outstanding, beginning with greeting you by name or serving you dessert for your birthday. They even have a drive-through option, which makes it easy for busy weekends. A great small hometown feel with an Italian twist.

We had the Calzones. They tasted good but had to pay for each topping. And no fountain drinks.
