Convenient spot for good, quick pizza by the slice before/after an Overture event

Enjoyed their pizza. Thin, crisp, good crust. Mac 'n cheese pizza pretty good but not our favorite. Smokey the Bandit was our favorite -- BBQ sauce, mozarella, BBQ chicken, bacon, ranch & cheddar. Open till bar time on weekends.

I love this place. I usually go to this restaurant when I want to eat pizza. They have many kinds of pizza and salad. Especially macaroni pizza is very delicious. I recommend this place.

Ian's is a unique place to get pizza. They have combinations that you wont find anywhere else. You can buy pizza by the slice and it is delicious. This is one of my favorite places to eat at on State Street.

I grew up in New Haven, Conn. So I think that I know good pizza when I see it. And Ian's, is amazing. I absolutely love their flavors (unique and fun if you are into trying something new, but also traditional if that is more your style). They also have great salads if you are not the biggest pizza lover.... More

Always stop by for lunch when I'm in Madison & never disappointed by the selection. It can a bit daunting & sometimes the queue can be massive but its worth it! I love the Mac & Cheese slice & I normally go for a staff recommendation & so far so good!! Great casual place for an easy good priced lunch!!

I have never seen so many people lined up on a Friday night to order slices of pizza ... but after taking home a couple of complete pizzas I could understand the crowd. Excellent pizza, amazing variety (not cheap by pizza standards but well worth the extra. The staff were excellent (I cannot imagine working as hard and long as... More

Every now and then, good pizza really hits the spot. Ian's pizza is not greasy pizza like other places. The pizza is in a display case, you order the pizza, they warm it in the oven, and the crust is light, crispy, and quite tasty. My wife and I each had two slices of pizza and a drink, and it...

We stopped in after seeing a concert at the Orpheum and it was busy! We stood in line and asked what they had for vegans (found them on a vegan site) & they said we were lucky that they had someone order a vegan pizza & not pick it up so they were selling it by the slice. We each... More

Popped into Ian's for lunch today - my first visit. Since they provided pies to the protesters at our State Capitol, which I thought was cool, so I wanted to give them some business. Was hoping for a good lunch experience, but didn't get it. Got a "custom" slice - beef brisket and tater tots, for $3.75. The slice had... More
