Divey little pizza place but the best pizza! Had the Roman Candle specialty pizza. Nice amount of sauce and banana peppers I swear were fresh. Kids had sausage and pepperoni pizza which was very good also. Crust was good, thin but held up to toppings. Candle sticks were a good appetizer. Fresh marinara sauce was very good.

Tonight's delivered small 12-inch pizza with black olives, red onions, green peppers and pepperoni was a superior production indeed--arrived in just under an hour for under $20 (not counting my tip). Definitely, I will order from this restaurant again--and probably I'll visit the dining room when friends visit suggesting we eat out. Besides custom pizzas, the menu features gluten-free options,...

I really enjoyed their pizza. Plus, they have a pretty good beer selection. Cozy atmosphere and attentive service.

Well arguably the best pizza in Madison/Middleton and I've tried to try them all. The Supreme is the best but they have many interesting choices. Friendly family atmosphere. Several different red sauces to choice from as well as alfredo and pesto sauces. Crust is what I would call medium, not thin and not thick, perfect.

I'd give it a solid #2 pizza in madison area. Ordered to my work. Took longer than said, but pizza was good and not too greasy like other places. We all enoyed it. Will order again for sure.

We ordered two gluten free meatless pizzas and two homemade lemonades. The pizzas were very tasty, the lemonade was just ok, too much sugar, not enough lemon. Our server seemed to be preoccupied with something(other larger groups came in after and left before us). Other than that it's was an above average GF pizza and worth another try.

I love that not only is the food tasty, but local. A great place to bring kids for some food and play.

I've been here twice and had a great experience both times. The pizza is delicious, cooked fresh, and served piping hot. It's also a great value price-wise. They use local cheeses and make their own crusts. I've tried almost every flavor they have, and even their vegan pizzas are killer. Who would have thought?!! They also serve local beers, and...
