Stopped in on a Sunday as we had heard the pizza crust is thin and very good. I was surprised to see that there is no wait staff and that you place your order at the counter before you go take a seat. It took me a minute to figure this out as there was no signage directing you what... More

Great relaxing atmosphere. Service very good for lone waitress. She was very good, friendly, organized and thorough. Cheese sticks were huge and tasty. Pizza very good also. Nice southern hospitality!

This is one of Columbia's best kept secrets. This is a wonderful place to hangout and enjoy a pizza and some beer. The pizzas are really good and the atmosphere is pleasant.

While traveling from Ohio to Florida, we stopped overnight in Columbia, TN. After reading some local reviews we settled on Truelove Pizza and Grits. We are so glad we did! We have two young children and the first thing we noticed is the family friendly atmosphere and the cleanliness. It was spotless! My husband had the shrimp and grits, I... More

Home made goodness, right from the town where it was born. It isn't a chain, and nothing but good love & ingredients go into these well-done, hand-picked, Columbia- only hand made MEALS! These pizzas are all of this, and down-home hospitality is the main ingredient!!! Count on it. Go on a weeknight, and you'll FEEL the love! Mr. & Mrs.... More

The pizza selections are great, the taste is stellar. I had a mushroom pizza and was very pleased. Others in family had shrimp & grits, chicken & grits and other pizzas. The kids had kids meals. The entire family was very pleased.

Truelove's is as unique as its name. The pizza is really good. A cracker thin crust and plentiful cheese and toppings make a satisfying pizza.

We love to go to Truelove's Pizza and Grits. They know how to make great pizza. The crust is paper thin and crunchy. The toppings are always fresh and delicious. We order the veggie pizza and add pepperoni. This is my wife's favorite. We always have a few slices to take home and enjoy another day. The grits are also... More
