“Great Pizza, Friendly Staff, and a Playroom for Kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2011

Our family has recently discovered Roman Candle and it has become our weekly ritual. It is a restaurants our whole family enjoys. We go often and we haven't found a pizza we didn't like. The kids love the playroom in the basement. The playroom isn't filled with coin operated machines but instead real toys! It is a great place for families with young kids since the kids can play while the pizza is cooking. There is even ice cream available. It truely has everything a kid and grown up could want in a laid back dining experience (including many of the local beers on tap).

“Best pizza in Madison”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

This review is long overdue. We eat at Roman Candle frequently. I have compared it to the other pizza in town and thing it has the best ingredients and the best tasting pizza. Service has always been pretty good. I highly recommend.

“Solid pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

We got carryout after my husband raved about their Margharita pizza. They are up-front in that they do not offer this pizza to go, because the fresh mozerella does not "travel well." We got the Margharita but with regular cheese to compensate. It was a very good pizza, but not the best I've ever had. I was surprised, however, that it is priced better than other local chains and is probably a better pizza. Dining in would be a charming atmosphere. I would eat there and then go to Bloom for a cupcake.

“Service great, pizza bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2011

We got pizza from this restaurant delivered while we were in Middleton staying at a hotel. The woman on the phone was extremely friendly. She said the pizza would arrive in 45-60 minutes, and it arrived in 35 minutes. So, I do think their service was great. But, the pizza was not very good. We ordered a large Pestoral and a large pepperoni and sausage. The crust on both was awful. It tasted burnt. We ordered hand tossed, but it was very thin. I can't imagine what the thin crust would be like. We also ordered a small cheese sticks, and those were good. The kids really enjoyed them. They were think pieces of pizza dough covered in mozzarella with a side if ranch for dipping.
I wish we would've enjoyed the pizza more.

“Pesto Pizza is Local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2010

Best pizza in Middleton.
The "Pestoral" could be my favorite pizza ever. This is a very family-friendly and casual place. There is a children's playroom in the lower level where parents can eat and relax while children play. Atmosphere is so-so, but location is great, and food is good.
