“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

We visited this place on a whim while driving to Gatlinburg. And, we were very happy that we did. I'm not sure if it is a mom and pop owned restaurant, but it definitely has the vibe. We were happily greeted as we entered, we received quick service, and oh my did the pasta sauce taste homemade! We ended up having garlic knots (delish), spaghetti with meatballs and a pizza, and everything was great! We also shared a Caesar salad, and everything was fresh and delicious. As a plus, the price was very reasonable, and we loved the decorations!

This place is perfect. The embodiment of cozy. Myself and my girlfriend entered and were welcomed by the super friendly staff. The space is filled with the smell of warm garlic, kitschy decor adorning the walls, and smooth music from the 70s. Once sat the owner welcomed us personally, mistaking me for someone she has met before, with how she treated us we felt like an old friend. I had an inquiry about the ciders and she let me try it without fear of having to be stuck with a bad decision. The garlic knots arrived steamy and oozing with delicious golden garlic butter. 😍 My GF ordered the calzone and the cheese pull was astounding. I ordered a small Supreme pizza and was blown away at how fresh the ingredients seemed. The peppers had a crispy snap and the homemade sausage was seasoned to perfection. While dinning the owner was chatting with every customer getting to know them personally. Through our encounter we learned this independent resteraunt owner has forged a customer service background that is unparalleled these days. This is the kind of restaurant we love finding in our travels and look forward to checking in to see what happens with them. Like checking in on an old friend. 💯 /10 will come here good.

I LOVE Nani’s Pizza and Pasta Bar. I have been a vegetarian for decades and I was so delighted when I found Nani’s. The chopped Italian Salad is top notch. I choose the delicious Creamy Parmesan dressing to go on it. And I have never, anywhere, found a pizza like Nani’s makes. I find it indescribable it is so special. Of course it order the Vegetariana Pizza. Oh my gosh and the Tiramisu is to die for. It is such a delight to find a place here in Franklin that also caters to vegetarians. Thank you Nani! ❤️
