Brianna Frost Hooper– Franklin, TN

“We usually split a pizza with the family but on our date night we got pasta! OMG MELT IN YOUR MOUTH MANICOTTI!!! Not to be outdone by the Chicken Piccata and Alfredo sauce over spaghetti!!!!”

Rebekah Edwards, Franklin TN

“Incredible service, amazing atmosphere, and delicious food! We got to hang out with Gina herself, and that’s the kind of thing you don’t see much anymore. Amazing!”

Julie Hendrix Reinhardt– Nashville, TN

“Took a while to get our carry out but some things are worth the wait. My Italian husband is beside himself with joy. He tested the place with his childhood favorites and was NOT disappointed.”




David Hellstrom– Franklin, TN  “Hey Gina’s, you guys ROCK!! I like wings and you guys fix the best. Had a ziti dish that was phenomenal. Pizza was great. Sauce is not overpowering with sweet or salty or garlicky. They are not advertising so let’s get the word out. South end of Franklin struggles with decent eateries. Like to see Gina’s as new cornerstone.”



Sharon Hornback B.Sharon Hornback B.Thompson’s Station, TN     “Absolutely fresh homemade authentic Italian food in south Franklin!  Service was a bit slow but the food was sooooo good it made it worth the wait!  Gina was so friendly. Her entire family embraces this business and makes you appreciate their family approach”

Tulané H.Tulané H. Nashville, TN    “Best bruschetta I have EVER tasted!”

Wendy H.Wendy H. Nashville, TN      “Fantastic! The pizza is truly wonderful. The sauce is perfect and a blend of sweet and spice which makes it so good…you can tell they truly love doing what they are doing. Farley our server was so nice and provided legendary service! Gina came by to chat as well. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. I wish they were closer but definitely worth the 40 minute drive. We kept it simple this first visit with a pizza with pepperoni, bacon and mushroom…but next time we will try the lasagna pizza.”


Chris T.– Yorkville, IL

“Best Italian food in Franklin. The pizza is wonderful and the pasta is even better. The noodles are homemade and the tomato sauce is to die for. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for great Italian food.”

Cat S.– Boynton Beach, FL

“Amazing food and great service! This place is definitely what Franklin has been missing! The owners are so nice and you get that family vibe the minute you walk through the door. I am very picky about my tomato sauce and let me tell you this one passed my test. The pasta was fresh and amazing. The fried mozzarella was a guilty pleasure, big triangles, which was a nice change from the common “sticks” and the balsamic dressing is my new favorite! Dine in or carry out the food is always great! This place is definitely going to continue to be my regular go-to. What can I say? I’m a sucker for Italian food 🙂 Thank you Gina and Joey for bringing much needed Italian food to Franklin!!!”

Cynthia B.– Winter Park, FL

“We were seated as soon as we walked in. The service was great and the owner came by our table and spoke to us for awhile. Our caprese salad was a fried green tomato topped with a generous slice of fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and a thick, sweet balsamic vinegar. The Mediterranean pizza was covered with fresh mushrooms, zucchini, artichoke hearts and more of that wonderful balsamic vinegar. We were very pleased and will definitely return and recommend to friends.”

Pam L.– Franklin, TN

“Really 4.5… Great local Italian in Franklin! Huge portions, quality ingredients and food made with care. Nonna’s Pasta is a sinful delight! The owner stopped by our table to make sure everything was right. Love that personal touch. We’ve added this one to our short list for local take-out as well!”

Paige C.– Franklin, TN

“We eat here at least once a week. Everything is fresh, authentic and homemade! The manicotti is to die for, and the pizza is amazing–I adore the Hawaiian, especially. Everyone is really nice, and they take time to get to know their regulars. So thankful Gina chose this part of town to set up shop!”


Mick– Franklin, TN

“In the two years we have lived in Franklin, we have tried nearly every Italian restaurant in the greater Nashville area and have not found a really good one until today. The informal setting and service look like many other privately owned pizza parlors but the food rates with the best we have found in anywhere. The pizza had a thin, almost crunchy crust of homemade dough and was topped by a wonderful sauce and the right amount of cheese. The chicken marsala was pounded thin, carefully and thinly breaded in saute, served with the best marsala sauce I have ever had, and sided with a wonderful helping of homemade pasta that had the buttery texture you would expect. Great prices, nice people, and we can’t wait to go back.”


Marti Chapman Moran Nashville
