“Distinctive high quality brick oven pizza.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The menu is complex but remember you can just build your own pizza and pick any ingredients for them to make for you. It is a terrific crust. A sleepy place that is run well.

“These guys know what they're doing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

They were open on memorial day. Lots of choices, they had so many pizzas I wanted. Knowledgeable staff, and great pizza makers. Wood fired oven, which is great. They have great drinks too. The only drawback was some of the pizza slices were drastically smaller than others. But, the flavors were excellent.

“Love this place”

One of my favorite wood fired pizzas in Madison. Salads are great. Service efficient and friendly. This place appreciates their customers and it shows.

“good place for pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I went there back to back days and had the margherita con bufalo pizza. All the pizzas look good. Both days they cooked our basil on top of the pizza in the oven. It may have been nice to have some fresh basil on it when it came out. The pizza is true neopolitan so you have to start eating this with a fork, as the crust is so thin. They make your wood fired pizza in about 3 minutes. It's a nice neighborhood where my wife liked shopping in the group of eclectic shops.

“My must stop place in Madison.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

I get to Madison twice a year and this is my must stop place. I learned after my first visit that it really simplifies ordering if I just start with the "margherita pizza" which is sauce,cheese,and basil, and add a couple of toppings to that. After a little love in that wood fired oven and perfection!
