We ordered take out to take back to our hotel. They don't deliver. Pizza is good and they seem to use high quality toppings. Salad was very good. Flat bread was so so...coulda used some dipping sauce or somethin. It was cool tho, cause they had an extra flat bread left over, so they gave it to me for free.... More

The service was great. It was very clean. Had a very cool vibe, but honestly I have had much better pizza. But, I would give the whole experience of eating at Pizza Brutta in its locale 4 stars. It is a very cool place to be. Afterwards, you can go check out Trader Joes, which is awesome.

Plain and simple...just awesome. The Prosciutto Arugula is to die for. The crust here is the best I think I've ever had. Trust me. Try it. The setting is cool. Order as you come in and they bring the food to your table. Pizza is best eaten on premise as it is cooked at very high heat and cools quickly.... More

Pizza Brutta di Madison has the best pizza and caprese salad outside of Italy, and I have lived in many parts of Italy. The mozzarella is fresh, handmade, and juicy! The olive oil is out of this world tasty, as well as the locally grown basil. I recommend the Diavola pizza for a true taste of Italy in Wisconsin. The... More

Neapolitan style Pizza made with a Wisconsin local ingredients. Beautiful and healthful fuel for the body. True Italian cooking focuses on seasonal and local ingredients. Why we would import Italian ingredients is beyond me. Create dishes with what we have here.

Excellent quality wood-fired pizzas made right in front of you at the counter. Love the fact that you can see the fire from the restaurant -- makes for a warm and inviting atmosphere. The pizzas are nice and light, just enough for one person without having to do the "walk of shame" (shuffling out, pants unbuttoned) like when you've overeaten... More

Ordered at the cashier, pizza was delivered quickly after. Reminded me of European type pizzas. Individual toppings. Not covered in cheese, as happens at many restaurants here. The crust is hand tossed, very good. It is not fancy, but good food.

Pizza is often seen as just another type of fast-food but this place shatters that myth. Truly original recipes and great ingredients plus great value for money.

A good quality wood-fired pizza in the neighborhood of Camp Randall Stadium. Nothing special, but hits the spot on a Sunday afternoon. This restaurant does not have table service. You order from the cashier and then go sit down until it is brought to you. You serve yourself a drink from the soda fountain. The price is reasonable, which probably... More

Three of us ordered a Diavola and a Olicetto. The pizza came out quickly and both were delicious. It is noisy and was difficult to find a place to sit but the pizza made up for that. Will visit again the next time I'm in Madison.
