PIZZA SNOB RATING **** 1/2 Nearer Perfection
Mrs. Pie and I saw this sad news a few weeks ago when we tried to make a gelato stop at Franklin’s Porta Via Italian Kitchen. Closed!
According to the sign, the Nashville location on White Bridge Road will remain, albeit with a “brand redevelopment strategy.” We will see what that means, but indications are that they will still serve their fine certified Neapolitan pizza.
Let’s hope that those two cool-looking brick ovens in Franklin find a good home somewhere around town. (East Nashville?) How about one that would better give this fine Italian restaurant the appreciation it deserves. So many times we were shocked to see one of our favorite places empty.
We miss you already.
