I always thought that I wouldn't like the grits, but I tried them. I can't wait to go again. Awesome!

The pizza here is the same as you could get from the Pizza Maker years ago. Excellent pizza that has stood the test of time! Also, this is the cleanest restaurant you will ever enjoy, the place is immaculate.

I travel through Columbia on a regular basis and often pass by this place. I thought to myself, at some point, I just have to check this place out. The pizza was good - not spectacular but not cardboard with sauce either. Granted, being a New Yorker, my expectation of pizza is quite high. Would I go back here just... More

I was curious to try the place after driving by it many times. The staff and atmosphere are nice. The grits that I tried tasted more like they were mixed with pimento cheese. The pizza was just so-so but others may like the style they serve here (thin crust, not a lot of cheese). I would recommend coming here and... More

Had the pizza and it was good but overpriced. I'm not a grits eater but everyone rants and raves about there grits.

They have one of the best pizza in town. Easy to order, inexpensive, tasty. Lots of different toppings. The grits are good also.

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
