Absolute "wow"!

I think we drove the cashier a little nuts because we were a large group with kids, but the staff was polite and patient. The food was excellent and well priced. You really can't go wrong. Two things to note are the fact that their pizzas are a single size (about the size of a regular dish), and... read more

I just went in for a pizza to go, and it was fast, I waited only a few minutes and it was peak lunchtime. They have their system down pat. The pizza was amazing; crisp crust, flavorfull cheese, fantastic sauce...pizza perfection! Would highly recommend dining in, it has a really neat interior. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful too.

You order & pay up front and they deliver to your table. Drinks are self serve. Food is very good. Mostly pizza salad.... Italian sandwich. No pasta. Paid about $35 for 2 people.

We shared a margarita pizza with pepperoni . We both ordered salads both were very good. Everything is made from fresh organic ingredients including the pizza, cheese, meat, flour and greens for the salad. Oh did I mention that it was very loud, even when the crying babies had left. One suggestion would be to go through the line and... More

It's small and gets crowded but they have great salads and pizzas. For people wanting a variety of sauces and toppings, it's nice. There's a set pizza menu with foods like arugula, fresh mozerella etc. The pizzas are all cooked in a wood burning oven that you can see when ordering at the counter. One of my 2 favorite pizza...

Great authentic neopolitan pizza right in Madison that supports local. Friendly and present owner coupled with fresh and quality products made it a memorable experience. Will return. Keep up the good work!

Checked this out on TripAdvisor before we went to Mad Town. It should be said that pizzas are made here like Subway makes sandwiches, but that is not bad. The menus could be located in a place that first timers could more easily find them. We asked a few questions and wound up getting a plain pizza by advice of... More

They have a wood stove and cook your pizza fast! You can watch them stretch the dough and pile on your ingredients. Just a few minutes later, your pizza comes to the table, hot and fresh from the oven and delicious. It's a noisy, casual environment and you can get a soft drink or wine or beer with your pizza....

We went for lunch. Almost missed it even with gps as the storefront is so small. Friendly service and the crust was amazing. Our 2 year old was impressed with the wood fire and pizza oven which is visible from the counter. Keep in mind that they only serve 8 inch pizza.

Individual pizza were made as you placed the order. Delicious, with very fresh ingredients. Order at the counter and the pizza or salad is brought to your table. Worth a stop!
