Re: “Little Chicago

Best lunch so far but still did not try the deep dish

Re: “Pizzereal

My girlfriend and I love Pizzereal! For the longest time, we were searching for good pizza in Nashville. Pizzereal hits the nail on the head with great tasting pizza with fresh ingredients! Their menu is simple, but awesome! They've got a myriad of toppings to choose from, a great house salad and yummy local beers. What else could you want from a pizzaria?

Aside from how great the food is, we love the relaxed family atmosphere inside, and the more Catina feel of the outside seating; perfect for summer time drinks with friends. Another plus is that you do not have to deal with the scenesters from other hipsterias in the neighborhood.

All this, and it's right at five points! We've found it a great place to meet up for food before a show at the 5 Spot.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Favorite pizza place in Nashville...seems like nobody knows it exists. I bring somebody new with me every time I go & they all fall in love with it!! Amazing pizza (the crust is perfect) & the biscotti is to die for. They play the music WAY too loud in the dining area but it doesn't bug me.

Re: “House of Pizza/Joey's House of Pizza

Best NY-style pizza in Nashville! Now Joey's has moved to Elm Hill Pike (just off Fesslers Lane) and is only open for lunch on weekdays. Brentwood location is no longer there...

Re: “Mellow Mushroom

Great pizza and beer selection. It is a bit pricey, but worth the money in the end.

Re: “Mama Mia's

On a lark my son and I went Mid-December 2012, had a good meal and a nice time. We decided to have Christmas Eve dinner there with our group of 8. We had good service and food, again. It was laid back, pleasant and a surprisingly good meal. We enjoyed the out of the way-ness of it and family feel.

Re: “Castrillo's Pizza

I called Castrillo's one evening at 4:30 to order; got voicemail stating "we are closed from 2-4 p.m." Called again at 5:00 to get same recording. At 5:30, I ordered elsewhere. Later that evening, I emailed Castrillo's to let their owner/manager know of the oversight on voicemail.
The response was shocking! I was told that there was an event that kept them from opening until 6 p.m. What about the voicemail? Their owner told me he didn't care if I went elsewhere since he had 5.000 happy customers. In fact, he told me "good luck."
Perhaps, if they took care of customers, they would have 10.000 customers by now. Will I ever eat at Castrillo's again? Hell, NO!

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

The Pizza is excellent! You'll never want franchise pizza again. I've been there 4 times and tried a different pizza each time. The thin crust is amazing - you know that when you eat all your crust. It holds it's shape. You don't loose everything on your slice when you pick it up; a testament to proper thin crust. It's a very casual setting. The music is a little bit too loud, but I haven't been there when it was crowded.

Re: “Mellow Mushroom

Living in Nashville since January 2012, it's sad to say that this is (a chain restaurant) has the best Pizza in town; that I've found. Consistent quality, service varies day to day; but you always get good pizza.

Re: “Sole Mio

I hate having to write negative reviews, but if I could save someone from a bad experience, then I feel somewhat obligated. Went to Sole Mio's with a small group celebrating multiple birthdays. Never been before, but we were in the mood for Italian and were going to a show a few blocks away after dinner, so it fit nicely with our plans. We were in a great mood, so it took a lot to bring us down. Every course we ordered was bland and boring, which is inexcusable considering that it is more expensive than other local Italian restaurants that offer the same items. There were no real values on the wine list. Markup was substantial for a restaurant as sub par as it was. Do you know how depressing it is to say "This dish actually tasted better at Olive Garden"? I absolutely hate Olive Garden. It was that bad. I know I might sound somewhat cheap complaining about prices. To clarify, I don't mind at all to pay more for better quality food. But if you can't even beat Olive Garden, then you probably should just shut it down. To wrap the meal up, we got a few desserts for the table. The waiter said they were "taken care of", since we were celebrating multiple birthdays. They weren't. He still charged us anyway. In short, if you like Italian food, don't go here. It's just sad.

Re: “Bricks Café

I arrived at Brick’s on Nolensville Road at 6:35pm, September 25th, to meet a friend for dinner after work. I entered the restaurant and informed the hostess that I was there to meet a friend whom I did not see yet, and that I would wait until my friend arrived before requesting seating. I then exited the restaurant to wait outside since the inside waiting area is quite small.

I strolled leisurely through the sunlit parking lot to a sidewalk that runs parallel to the parking lot. When I reached the end of the short sidewalk, I turned to walk alongside the trees lining the bank of Mill Creek and was about to complete the circuit back to the front of the restaurant to meet my friend when I was confronted by a gentleman who I assume was the manager.

He inquired the reason for my presence and I politely explained to him that I was awaiting the arrival of a friend for dinner and motioned towards her vehicle which had just entered the lot. He then informed me that I was waiting “too close to the cars in the parking lot” and abruptly instructed me to “go somewhere else.” I instantly and politely agreed to leave the lot, and he stood guard as my friend and I pulled away to eat instead at Southside Grill a couple of blocks away.

We will not be back to Bricks.

Re: “Mama Mia's

My wife and I went in for dinner on a Wednesday night; I hadn't been in years and it was her first visit. I remembered the service being mediocre but the food being very good.

The service hasn't changed -- it was appallingly bad. The restaurant is not well-run from a service perspective; of the 3 servers on-shift one was far more concerned with loudly sorting and rolling clean silverware than running any food, which was left in the window for minutes at a time. The credit card machine was broken, and I overheard from another table that their soda machine was not functioning, either. For a restaurant that serves neither alcohol nor tea, it appeared the beverage choices left were tap water and sprite. Mercifully, we had purchased a bottle of wine from the nearby liquor store, which proved the saving grace of the evening.

The food? Perhaps my palate has improved, my memory was inaccurate, or the food has simply gone downhill. The salads were slathered in bottled, flavorless, pre-made dressing. The pasta was not fresh -- while properly cooked, it was clearly dried pasta. The sauces were average; the bolognese lacked any richness or depth. The garlic bread (which we asked for repeatedly and was delivered near the end of the meal) tasted like it had been popped out of a Pillsbury can -- artificial and oily. I felt the prices were not in line with the quality.

Overall, I couldn't recommend this to anyone -- in the 20 years since this place opened, Nashville now has many Italian options that do a better job than Mama Mia's in all areas -- decor, service, and most importantly, food.

Re: “Bricktop's

The steak frittes with herb butter is one of the best you can get in town!

Re: “Bricks Café

HAIR IN MY FOOD!
First off--let me say that I WAS a loyal customer to Bricks. We eat at the Brentwood location probably 3-5 times/ month and we also eat at or get take-out from the Nolensville Road location 3-5 times/month for the past year+.

This past Sunday, while I was dining at the Brentwood/Franklin Road location with family, we had the worst experience and because of it, will NOT be dining at Bricks ever again.

I found a nasty hair in my steamed vegetables. It was so intertwined into a piece of broccoli that when I picked up the hair, the broccoli came with it. Now, I will admit that I have medium length hair and it was not pulled back that afternoon. However, if my hair fell onto the plate, one would think that I would be able to pick the hair up off the top of the food and remove it. This piece of hair, as I stated before, was intertwined in the head of the broccoli. I doubt it fell off of my head and got that tangled around a piece of food.

I called the manager (who might also be the owner? tall, big belly, bad attitude) over to the table to show him the hair in my food. The only word (besides jerk) that comes to mind is completely APATHETIC! He could care less. I wasn't rude, I wasn't ugly, I wasn't really even that upset. I just wanted him to know that somehow hair was getting into their food. Because, let's get real--mistakes happen. His reaction----"there is no way that could have happened. Our vegetables come to us fresh in a sealed bag." Okay--so a human with hair doesn't package them? A human with hair doesn't get them out of the package when they are cooked? A human with hair doesn't plate them? He NEVER apologized. He acted as if he could care less. He didn't offer to refund the meal....nothing! In fact, I saw him over behind the hostess stand talking to our server & the hostess with a look of total smirk on his face. After that point, our server never spoke to us as she came back to the table. No offer for refills, nothing. They, of course, did not refund the meal. As we were leaving, the hostess just looked at us and did not speak. They acted as if we did something wrong. The manager/owner saw us getting up from our table and turned and walked to the back of the restaurant so he wouldn't have to talk to us as we were leaving.

Last I checked, the restaurant business is pretty competitive. Obviously, this guy doesn't care. The worst customer service I have seen in a long time. Because of his bad attitude (not the hair), they have lost our business.

Re: “Mama Mia's

I agree with Joe Savage & Nyshired about Moma Mia's- It just plane sucks. When you walk in the sign on the table says $5.00 corking fee & $2.50 per six pack of beer- Why ?
They had many tables available but wanted to seat us at the table by the door, it's December & cold-we had to ask for another table.
The servers & Manager just don't care if you are happy or not.
We ordered two entrees, one Lasagna & one Penne bolognese with sasage. We received the extravaganza & the Penne pesto.
Both dishes were cold. I think we got someone elses order ?
When we finally found our server she said she would talk to the manager ? Why ? (Just bring us the right orders) She returned and said the manager would adjust the price- now we are paying more for the meals we didn't order and it was also cold?
I gave up trying to comunnicate with insanity, paid the bill and left- never to return :~( Barry Harkin, Nashville, TN

Re: “Pie in the Sky

Very confused by the other review here. Why did they give a 5 star review if they were so dissatisfied. Not sure how a pizza can be overcooked and chewy.

In either case I love this place. Never had a bad time of a bad pizza. Make sure you try this place out for yourself.

Re: “Bella Napoli

While the food was good, the service was TERRIBLE. Our waitress was very pleasant, but we had two issues. First, my ID was denied because it looked 'fake'. While I was visiting from out of state, I had two forms of identification and it still look half an hour to get my glass of wine. Second, The group I went with was using a Scoutmob. When we received our checks the alcohol was not discounted. We had to send the check back 3 times before we asked for the manager. The manager was the RUDEST manager I have encountered at a restaurant. When we asked about the discount on the alcohol, his response was 'We have never discounted alcohol before and if you have a problem with the Scoutmob you need to call them and complain'. The Scoutmob did not say the deal excluded alcohol, but the manager didn't seem to want to work with us at all. He was not listening, just talking in a very condescending manner. I will not be going back to Bella Napoli EVER. And if you plan on drinking a glass of wine, don't expect a discount if you're using a Scoutmob. This is a very unfortunate situation, food was good, but you can't have a successful restaurant with a terrible manager.
