When the blizzard of '15 hit, CPK didn't fail to disappoint, merely by being open. So, pro #1: Opens when it snows. Not a positive to be taken lightly in Nashville.Other positives:# 2. Delicious gluten-free pizza, complete with a little wooden gluten-free flag of isolation ("Oh. I guess you won't be trading pizza slices").# 3. Decent portion sizes. I don't feel like they are trying to feed the small nation that I have apparently hidden under the table, but I don't leave hungry, either.#4. Fresh and tasty food.I ordered the gluten-free pepperoni pizza. While no gluten-free pizza will ever be quite as delightful as gluten-plus pizza, this was hot, crispy, and tasted a lot like pizza. Can't argue with that. For people who prefer to be unhappy, there are also quinoa salads and other vaguely healthy options.While I do find the food here to be a little pricey for what you get, it is not a completely unreasonable deal. Especially when they are the only place open in a five-mile radius on a mildly snowy evening.
We eat here almost every Monday. Its a GREAT place for a family or if youre on a date - somehow the atmosphere melds all types and groups in harmonoius delicious-ness! Amazing beer selections including Bell's Two-Hearted!!! Parking id literally NEVER a problem because of the large, well-lit super-safe parking lots in the front AND the back. The wait -staff are allowed to wear whatever they want to work and we always enjoy seeing the ORIGINAL t-shirts that include, but are certainly not limited to, dukes of hazard, Poison, and Run DMC. How in the WORLD can you beat a slice and a pint? (Hint: You can't!) Thanks for the awesome Monday's Five Points Pizza!!!!
This pizza is awesome!! My formerly favorite pizza joint in downtown and doesn't deliver. So, I am on a constant quest for a great pizza with a delivery option (because I am often lazy). This is the best pizza in the are for sure. I am a non-pork eater so I was pleasantly surprised when I asked the guy that answered the phone (once again, delivery-lazy) what he recommends for non-pork eaters,like myself and he said they don't sell pork! They use beef pepperoni, excuse me, beef pepperoni you say, I'll take a large. It was delicious and convenient. It reminds me of homemade pizza... yummm.
My ex-gf introduced me to this little hole in the wall that has a very small parking lot, so use the street, but has a generous and tasty menu. Pizzas are top of the line, and their subs are the best I've ever had. For the food I give 5 stars, but listed 4 stars because it's nearly impossible to find parking during the day time. Tonight we had spaghetti & meat balls, bread, Dr Pepper (Bottled), and a large onion / beef pizza, with the tip $32.00 done deal. Great food and worth the inconvenience of the parking. And they are open 365 days a year, until 4 or 5 am.

I decided to check out Nonna's for Restaurant week, and although their pizza is quite tasty, their starter salad consisted of a vinaigrette and mixed greens. Their dessert advertised as "almond cheesecake" was an almond cake topped with mascarpone. It wasn't impressive either. So, if you're interested in a Nashville original restaurant, they've certainly got a tasty pizza option, but there are many more impressive pizza joints in town.
It was a little confusing for me the first time going in, it's crazy and hectic, and PACKED!But there's good reason, the pizza was AWESOME! Garlic bread wasn't very good, I won't buy that again. But I would go back every day for that pizza, it was so good! Everyone working was super upbeat and friendly as well. If they had better garlic knots, and they were opened for dinner instead of only lunch during the week it would be a 5 star.
