And now that the sacks of double zero caputo flour and blast furnace ovens are in place, and a ribbon-cutting— yes, really — is scheduled for the Nov. 14 opening of the Williamson County location at 3301 Aspen Grove.
Expect a beautiful interior with a fountain and a pergola ceiling. Included in the seating for 125 are a patio and a pizza bar, for people who want to scarf down a quick slice.
It's no secret that Bites loves Porta Via — but it's not just us. Just about everyone admires the VPN pizza, homemade pasta, gelato in 18 flavors each day, and that broiled rosemary-and-garlic T-bone steak.
And when I say everyone, I mean that the 11 a.m. ribbon cutting will be attended by the mayors of both Williamson County and the city of Franklin. The restaurant will open for service immediately following.
That's about as grand a grand opening as you could hope for. Speaking of opening, the Cool Springs Porta Via will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Saturday. (Closed Sundays.)
