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.

Good and light- price reasonable- atmosphere marginal- location nice- if you want traditional sausage and pepperoni this probably isn't you place.

Stayed overnight in Madison on a trip home and decided pizza was in the cards for us. Read a few reviews on TA and did some looking in a Madison dining guide and Pizza Brutta looked like the spot for us. One of the main factors was that people consistently said it was a family friendly environment in a family... More

Glass Nickel is a great greasy pizza but sometimes you just want a brick oven pizza. Pizza Brutta's pizza has a crispy crust with fresh local ingredients. I am a traditional girls and love a good margherita pizza. This pizza is delicious. A Madison favorite!

The menu is complex but remember you can just build your own pizza and pick any ingredients for them to make for you. It is a terrific crust. A sleepy place that is run well.

They were open on memorial day. Lots of choices, they had so many pizzas I wanted. Knowledgeable staff, and great pizza makers. Wood fired oven, which is great. They have great drinks too. The only drawback was some of the pizza slices were drastically smaller than others. But, the flavors were excellent.

One of my favorite wood fired pizzas in Madison. Salads are great. Service efficient and friendly. This place appreciates their customers and it shows.

I went there back to back days and had the margherita con bufalo pizza. All the pizzas look good. Both days they cooked our basil on top of the pizza in the oven. It may have been nice to have some fresh basil on it when it came out. The pizza is true neopolitan so you have to start eating... More

I get to Madison twice a year and this is my must stop place. I learned after my first visit that it really simplifies ordering if I just start with the "margherita pizza" which is sauce,cheese,and basil, and add a couple of toppings to that. After a little love in that wood fired oven and perfection!
