Worth the drive!. I have been driving from Green Hills to Franklin (1st The Factory, now Cool Springs) JUST to pick up Matteo's pizza for years. When they first opened, the owner gave me a sample of the cheese they use, and it was clear from the taste and texture that they weren't using standard pizza place ingredients. I am never disappointed (other than when I discovered that they no longer open on Sunday, but I do understand the need for rest and recovery, of course) -the food is ALWAYS excellent, and the service could not be better. I also like the fact that Matteo's is family-owned and opereated. You will usually be met by father or son - hi Matt - and they go out of their way to provide quality service and products. They also employ local teens, which is nice. Much like Lee's Apothecary, also a locallly-owned business in WIlliamson County, did when I was in high school in the 80's. Even though the present-day Cool Springs area, with its innumerable strip malls, SUV's, etc., looks NOTHING like it did in my adolescent days, Matteo's maintains the small town attitude that I loved when growing up in Brentwood. I love Matteo's (!), and I am happy to make the almost-weekly drive to pick up one of my favorite meals.
Tasty, healthy, fresh pizza!.
Admittedly I normally go for the "cheap stuff" thinking...ehhh...pizza is pizza. Well I was pleasantly surprised when eating at Matteos. I could actually taste the difference between this pizza and some of the 'buffet quality' stuff I usually go for. Best of all, the pizza's I've bought at Matteos were comparably priced to Papa Johns and Pizza Hut, yet clearly tasted better. I could tell the ingredients were completely fresh and healthier than what one would normally get at a buffet or pizza chain. The crust is completely amazing and unique.
One of the latest times I was in there, I got to sample a pastry type dish they were experimenting with, along with some of the gluten free bread, cakes, and cupcakes...yes I said cakes and cupcakes! Apparently this gluten free stuff is all the rage for celiacs and people looking to lose weight or simply live a more healthy lifestyle.
I give this pizza an A++++!!!!
I am staying at a local Brentwood hotel tonight, and after 10 hours traveling, my two kids wanted pizza, but I didn't have a car at my disposal, so I thought delivery would be great. I found Matteo's on the internet and it sounded good since it wasn't a chain. Their whole site encouraged online ordering, so I thought I'd go ahead and do it. I filled out all the forms, gave my credit card number, got an on-line receipt and was promised a 45-minute wait. I had also checked before ordering, and their site said they were open until 8:30 on Sunday...perfect...it was only 6:45 when I ordered.
Well, we waited, and waited, and waited. My kids were starved, and after an hour and a half wait, they were understandably grouchy. I decided to call the restaurant....no answer. I called again, and it went straight to a voice mail that did not even have a message on it...no mention of pizza or a restaurant or anything. I went back and double-checked the site...sure enough.."open until 8:30pm" just like I thought.
So, the pizza never arrived, and we all got to go to bed hungry, since after waiting for over 2 hours, it was too late to try somewhere else. Thank you, Matteo's, for your stunning lack of professionalism and non-existent service.
Best Pizza in Nashville.
I have lived in Nashville most of my life and recently I discovered Matteo's off of Carouthers. Not only is the food excellent, but it is family owned and operated and posses that personal touch that chains cannot duplicate. I have never been disappointed. Their ingredients are far superior to the chains. They also offer catering, and I must say, the lasagna is excellent. If you work in the area, I highly recomment this cost effective alternative. My office tries to have catered meetings at least monthly.
Keep up the great work!
Best pizza in town!. YUM! We live down the street from this pizza place and tried it out of the blue. WOW! It is absolutely delicious. Definitely better than any delivery chain, and I love the crust (kind of a cross between thin and regular crust) and the square slices. And although we have not tried it, they serve gluten-free pizza! I can't wait to tell my sister-in -law and niece the next time they are in town, because they have celiac disease and cannot eat gluten. I am waiting for my Friday night delivery right now... Yummy!
FranklinFoodCritic. Matteo's second location is just as good as it's first. The pizza is consistently wonderful just like the original location at the Factory at Franklin. We can find no better family food value than what Matteo's is producing. From the clean, fresh products that go into each pie to the reasonable pricing this pizzeria is a must for any family or individual serious about pizza.
