Manny’s House of Pizza, Nashville, 4/16/21


Manny’s House of Pizza is in the historic Arcade Building in downtown Nashville.  As you walk up don’t be surprised to see a line out the door but be assured it moves quickly and as you wait you can watch Manny toss the pizza dough and spread the tomato sauce.  Born in Sicily, Manny started in a Brooklyn pizzeria where he learned the skills needed to open his shop in the mid-80’s down in Nashville.  (His brother has a shop in Brentwood).  You can also get calzones, pastas, subs and pastas there but the majority in line with me were just getting a slice.  They are open weekday from 11 am to 4 pm.  When we went it was cash only.

We tried a couple slices of pepperoni pizza.  It was delicious.  The crust had a nice puff to the edge and there was a generous and balanced amount of sauce, cheese and pepperoni.  If I lived here I think it would become a regular snack/lunch for me.
