How can you go wrong with brick oven pizza? Richard's does it right. One person can easily eat 4 slices and feel pretty terrific afterwards. The blend of crust, sauce, and toppings is just right. You might pay a little more here for pizza than a carry out, but as it is said, you get what you pay for. It's... More

Excellent pizza. Good atmosphere friendly staff Issa done a cut above. In the gourmet category but not stuff shirt. Popular with locals that don't care for a teenage hangout environment.

The pizzas made from scratch and cooked in the pizza oven are wonderful! They are a bit pricey but well worth it. Great service! The garlic knots as wonderful!

Found this restaurant on a little side street in downtown Franklin. So glad we did. Price was right, pizza and wild mushroom ravioli were delicious and a great draft beer selection. The wood brick oven is right in the middle of the restaurant. You can watch your pizza cook. The only downside is they aren't open for lunch.

We stopped here on the advice of the town folk. Were told how wondrous the food was especially the garlic pinwheels. We were let down as to the fact the food was one note. Every item was made out of the same dough and so everything had the same flavor. Only 1 server and she was way over stretched so... More

A flat crusted pizza perfectly baked in a high temp brick oven. A wide variety of toppings and fairly priced. Try the Mediterranean Special for a great tasting alternative to the normal fare. The meatball sub is excellent. The wait staff is professional, friendly and efficient. Ask for Brad or Hannah to be greatly taken care of.

Very excited to try this pizza as Franklin isn't known for great pizza spots. Placed an order to go and the server had little knowledge of the menu. We had to ask because the website wasn't working properly. A pizza is about 10inches and can be finished by one hungry eater. Specialty pizza is $10 and the garlic pinwheels we... More

We were seated quickley, placed our order & it was done in no time. The pizza was the BEST!!! I thought Chicago pizza was the best, I was soooo wrong. The restaurant isn't open on Sunday, it not closed!
