Best Pizza in the World

The title says it all. Every time I am in Madison I have pizza at the Glass Nickel. I was told there was another place i need to go for Pizza and I said NO. I will never eat pizza anywhere else in Madison!

Longtime favorite of mine. Hadn't been in for a while and had a solo lunch. Cracker thin w spicy sauce, sausage and green peppers. One of the best pizzas in the city. I've had the thin for years and just discovered the cracker and seems to highlight the topping flavor even more. Highly recommend it.

What goes together better than pizza and football? I have not been excited about pizza for a long time. Seven kids, pizza every Friday. I'll find something else to eat: leftovers, frozen dinner, drink my dinner, anything, not pizza. We ordered before the AFC game, and pizza was delivered fresh and hot to our door. The kids of course had... More

I ordered a large salad and extra dressing and a sub. Well I didn't have a problem waiting the hour for them to deliver my food. But they forgot the dressing for my salad. I called and they said they would send someone right out. Well guess what 35 min later no dressing. I called back the manager said that... More

My family was here back in early September for dinner. The place was kind of small but luckily we were here after the dinner rush so it wasn't too crowded. The service was good and the waitress was very attentive. The beer was cold and the pizza was great. I forgot what its called, but we got the pizza with... More

I must be a pizza addict. The Glass Nickel is a great little place to sit and relax with the family. We started with Nickel Nuggets which were small balls of dough flavored with parmesan. The pizza was loaded with cheese just the way I like it. They were extremely short staffed but still handled a room filled with customers.

Found ourselves in a Madison hotel, 11PM and hungry. The hotel had no food available, but the in-room menu included Glass Nickel. Having had their pizza in Appleton, we decided to try the original location. The pizza arrived as promised, hot and tasty with toppings piled high.

My husband and I went to Glass Nickel about a month ago. We had the Thai Pie, which was excellent. I don't eat a lot of pizza because the tomato sauce often gives me heartburn, so I was happy they had a pizza with a peanut-based sauce that didn't bother me. Very tasty and different.

Glass nickel continues to be over hyped...the pizza is average and it doesn't seem like it's been baked long enough you have to tell them well done as we have had pizza with cheese not melted all the way. The cheese bread is awesome and a must have while the fried ravioli, subs, mozzarella sticks, and chicken strips are average... More

Always love this pizza, definitely a unique flair. This is the only pizza I enjoy hot or cold. This is a local golden gem.
