“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

Came because of the great reviews, and it absolutely lives up to the hype. The garlic knots are a must. Wish we lived closer!

The best pizza we’ve had in a long time; the garlic knots were delicious too! We ordered a large Don Dante and it was amazing, everything was fresh and had a ton of flavor. Great customer service too! We ordered on a Thursday around 6:30 PM and it was ready in about 20 minutes.

We went there after we found this place on google map and it was even better than expected! We loved the pizza. For me it was one of the best I ever had. (I left the plate clean which never happens to me to eat an entire pizza 😃 - it was a small size). We also really liked the ambiance, the service … we had a great time after a hiking day! I highly recommend Blanco pizza with arugula, and also the Supremo pizza! Thank you, Hope! You are wonderful and made us feel like home!

We fell in love with this place. The pizzas were made with love from scratch. The atmosphere with attention to details made it special. Cloth napkins, china plates, etc . We chatted with the owner Elizabeth, and shared stories of owning pizza restaurants. She was so sweet and sent us on our way with delicious complimentary cannolis. Can't wait to return next fall for the leaves & Nani's great Italian food.

We have always enjoyed our experiences at Nani's! I've mostly gone with taking the food to go. However, dining in was well enjoyed. It's a smaller venue, but it has character, which I appreciate. I am thankful that Franklin, NC, has this establishment to enjoy.
