We were staying in Madison for the first time and we're craving pizza. Our hotel recommended Ian's and we were glad we went with their recommendation! They had plenty of 'fun' pizzas to try with unique toppings. It was delicious and the slices were HUGE! Definitely worth the money. Only downside was that it took an hour and a half... More

A must do while in Madison. Our daughter and son-in-law went there after a wonderful meal with the family! Just because they had to before we left Madison!!

Visited late at night around midnight and browsed the variety of different slices. We chose the penne bolognese slice and the ravioli slice. They warmed up the slices in the oven and brought them to us. They were very hot, so we picked at the crust. The crust was awesome, New York style crispy, chewy, thin. When it cooled, I... More

I came here with my sister who was visiting from out of town. Since it was our first time I always asked what's the local favorite. It was Smokey the Bandit. The crust was chewy and crispy on the outside and the toppings were warm and cheesy. I'm still not sold on barbecue sauce on pizza. It seemed a bit... More

Great little place offering variety of pizza slices. Mac n Cheese is probably the most popular, and while you may turn your nose up, try it! It's really good. Loved the different variety of pizza slices offered. Great value too. Friendly service. Great value for families. If you are looking for the traditional pizza, keep looking. These pizza's are one...

We visited the location on state street during the week right at dinner time (5pm). The staff is extremely friendly. Very willing to answer our questions and very patient with us, being a bigger party with small children. The price of the meal is also reasonable. It cost us about $8 per person. Unfortunately, the friendliness and price were the... More

After wandering almost all of State Streed I found this place way out toward the end of State near the capital. If you're willing to try some pizza that is a little less traditional and you aren't intimidated by big crowds of loud frat boys or a menu that is impossible to interpret then go for it. I was feeling... More

This thin-crust by-the-slice specialty place also has delivery but we usually stop by downtown to enjoy the casual atmosphere. Order at the counter and choose a rickety table or head outside to the lively scene at the top of State Street. We would suggest trying the mac&cheese pizza if you want a rich, tasty, filling twist.

Large high volume pizza and pop place on State Street which is popular with students and travelers alike. Really enjoyed their thin crust pizza and the salads looked good. I had to laugh when I saw the photo on tripadvisor as we ordered the mac and cheese pizza and it was awesome. My daughter loved it. Lots of carbs.

I imagine this place is great for college kids after a night at the bars but I wouldn't return anytime before midnight. Pizzas were just what you want after a night of drinking, quick, easy and greasy. It is just not what I want when eating out at any other time.
