Ian's is wedged between State Street and Capitol Square, providing quick, creative and delicious slices. My favorite time to go is before or after a show at the Overture or Majestic, when you don't want (or have time for) a large meal. If you don't like pizza (who doesn't like pizza??) they have a great salad selection as well. The... More

A great place for food (and Pizza of course). There isn't a bad slice in the place. Recommendations would be Smoky the Bandit and the Macaroni and Cheese. The location could be better though. It is next to a somewhat sketchy portion of downtown. Definitely a fun spot!

Coming from Chicago, I am always skeptical of pizza places but this restaurant lived up to its expectations. Not only is their pizza, the melt-in-your-mouth kind, this is the only place where you will find the most unusual flavors on a pizza. I was there with friends and tried out three slices - crab rangoon, sweet potatoe with olives and... More

Very busy place at lunch time. Great variety of pizza. Fresh made to order salads reasonably priced. You pick it out they heat it up or made to order. Close to the capitol. Park in the garage. Street parking is limited to 25 mins. Good for all ages.

Really excellent pizza. Lots of unusual but tasty flavors. Our family really enjoyed Smokey & The Bandit and Mac & Cheese. The order process isn't the most efficient and they messed up our order. Had to change to a different variety or wait for a new one to be made fresh. Guy who helped us was kind of a jerk... More

Was good but I have had better. Do not recommend the breadsticks- they are big fat loaves of bread. Would try one of the specialty pizzas if ever go back

Saw this pizza joint on a travel show (DDD maybe). Had the quesadilla pizza and it was awesome. Friendly staff.

So many people have told me that Ian's Pizza is the best in Madison, WI, so I thought I'd give it a try for lunch. When you arrive, the customer queue gets funneled into a line that twists past staff who make made-to-order salads, and then you move on to the pizzas that are pre-prepared and held under warming lights....

Love that you can get their pizza by the slice. They offer something for every pizza lover and probably things you didn't even know you liked. I am not a fan of traditional mac-n-cheese but there is something about it on their pizza that is AMAZING! Big fan of their salads also. You will not be disappointed.
