There is a reason this place gets rated ‘best pizza’ by our weekly newspaper The Isthmus. It is the best! On a recent Sat night my boyfriend & I ate in the very small dining room of their west side location. We thought we’d try something new so got the Sucre Blue. Oh my was it out of this world... More

They are always courteous, have the food ready on-time, and gets the order right every time. It's a great place to go with family and friends.

Good pizza, recommended to me, but a bit too expensive by my usual standards. I wanted to try the feta, but was roped into the deluxe - a simple pepperoni/sausage. Good crust.

From funky toppings to your old favorites, Glass Nickel is a Madison institution for solid reasons. I prefer to order in and get my pizza deliver fast, hot and delicious every time.

Staff at the Staybridge East recommended. Called the number on the brochure (3 different numbers) and it turned out to be the one closer to Staybridge West. When they couldn't find us they called and said we called the one farer away. Didn't know. Never been there before. However, did receive the closer number and they credited the account. The... More

Stopped in for a salad and sandwich. I ordered a large Cobb salad. It was fabulous. Two whole sliced avocados in it. Couldn't eat the entire salad, have enough for lunch tomorrow. The Chefs Club had fresh ingredients, but my husband reported it was just OK. Thought it would have been better if they would have put on the dressing... More

When we lived in Madison, this was our hands-down favorite for pizza. Glass Nickel had so many great creations that it was hard to pick a favorite. However, I eventually settled on the BBQ Chicken. My son liked the Thai pizza and so those were the two we ended up getting on a consistent basis for our family of five.... More

While this place is tricky to find and it's disappointing that pizza's bosom buddy, Beer, isn't available here, we thought our pretty straight ahead pepperoni pizza was pretty straight ahead. Service was okay, and we brought our own ambiance, and we did have a good time and good pizza, but all told we wouldn't bother tracking it down again -... More

Ordered takeout Aug 2013. Have eaten pizza from here since early 2010. Online (Internet) ordering is easy to use. And you can customize much more than other restaurants (chose the type of pizza sauce and cheese for instance). Check for COUPONS on their website. Delivery available but call to make sure they will come to your address. Click on [MORE]... More
