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.
Pros: EXCELLENT food, top quality ingredients, consistency, family-owned, good value
Cons: Not open on Sunday
