I came here with my family for good before a UW sporting event. The food was amazing. The business is unique and you order up front, then they deliver to you and your party at the table. The food was really good for the price. You can make your own or choose a variety of other options. Would highly recommend... More

We got carry-out pizza. The toppings and cheese were first rate. The pizzas are wood-fired and the crust is excellent.The staff were incredibly friendly and one told us to open the pizza boxes slightly so our pizza did not steam on the way back to the hotel. If we lived in Madison we would be regulars!

We were in town visiting family and they took us to Pizza Brutta. It was excellent! I had the beet salad and the Prosciuto Arrugala white pizza and they were both fantastic. Around the table a number of different pizzas were ordered and shared and everything looked fantastic. I highly recommend this kid friendly dinner option!

We are in Madison for the Wisconsin Osu football game and looked to TripAdvisor for a great recommendation and are most satisfied. The pizza is delicious, the salad fresh and tasty and a good sandwich as well If you're in the university area make time to ear here

I've eaten here several times. They have pizza and sandwiches which are served only at lunch time before the oven gets too hot to continue to make them. They were recommended in our local paper and I do really enjoy them.

Thin, crust with random air bubbles- flavorful sauce, great toppings all combined to make this one of my favorite places for pizza. My taste buds start imagining the incredible flavors just at the mention of Pizza Brutta's name! We've been to both the original location on Monroe Street & the new location in Middleton- both invoke the same response. Fast... More

They have great pizza. So much better than most places! Would go there in a heartbeat! Delicious! Making me hungry just thinking about it. Also their salads are yummy. Good combination.

My husband and I came here about a year ago and we haven't found a restaurant that was as good as this one in Milwaukee so we decided to take a nice drive out and it was worth it

This place has very good thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients and rotating beers on tap. Sodas are from a fountain which is less than ideal. Service is quick and the atmosphere is simple.

Pizza was good. I had an olive oil based pizza , it was very good. My picky daughter ordered sausage, she is too picky and declared she did not like the sausage, I tasted it and seemed fine to me.
