Great find! We started with focaccia and ordered 2 pizzas and 2 pastas - everything tasted great! Our server was fantastic. We were seated at a large table (for 8) and another group of 5 was then seated at the other end of our table which was not ideal, but overall we had a fabulous experience and would definitely go back again!

Found this neighborhood gem while on vacation. From the appetizers (Brussel sprouts and foccia bread) were delicious. Ordered the butternut pasta and pepperoni pizza and were amazed! The 1/2 carafe of Cabernet was also delicious. Thought we were full, but did squeeze in some gelato and sorbet- yum!

Best pizza in Nashville and an excellent wine list, albeit concise.

We stopped to get a quick bite before a show and loved everything we ordered. The flavors were delicious. We had a pizza, appetizers and a small meatball order and it was plenty of food for 3 ladies.

We waited 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged our table of 8 (hard to miss!) but once they made it to our table, the food and drinks were flowing and service was not a problem. The food was good and plentiful.

We had a fantastic time with amazing waiters.

Only mix up was that the party was booked for 7 instead of 2 through OT which caused the Nicky's team some inconvenience. This could have been system related or user error, but we just felt bad for the Nicky's team.

Since we waited a while to be seated, they were nice enough to bring us 2 complimentary glasses of wine.

A+ experience!

Maybe the special Valentine’s Day menu threw the place off, but I was expecting a lot more. My husband and I aren’t too picky when it comes to food as long as it’s tasty, but our main courses were not edible. The cheesecake for dessert tasted spoiled and the chocolate cake frozen. Definitely not worth trekking to the burbs for this place.

Amazing food for Valentine's day but ended up spending a little more than expected.
Wonderful atmosphere but tables were packed in too tight. It may have been just for the holiday but I could barely walk in between the tables to get to the seat on the other side.
All in all I was very pleased with the service and experience and will definitely be back

I booked this reservation about 6 weeks before Valentine's Day, so I didn't know about the set menu until a couple of weeks before when the staff called to confirm. Although I hadn't originally planned on the set menu, it was incredible. Great choices for each course and the food was delicious, as always. Friendly staff and attentive, but not overly attentive, waitstaff. We will absolutely be back.

Wonderful night as usual. The food is always great. The pie of the week with chorizo, beer cheese, etc... was incredible. The most outstanding item of the night was our waiter, Josh. He truly made the experience better and was one of the better waiters I've had in Nashville in years.
