have eaten at this location a few times as well as the one on Willy st and we have never had a bad pizza. Crust is delicious as are the toppings no matter what you choose. The candlesticks are fantastic as well and considering how big that is it could be a meal by itself.

Outstanding pizza, good service, & great prices! My entire family enjoyed their dinner. The appetizers were really tasty, especially the cheesy breadsticks. The pizza was full of flavor (unlike all of the chains) and was seasoned to perfection. And it was an added bonus that they had several really good ice creams to choose from for the kiddos. Our waiter... More

Great little pizzeria joint. Located on a trendy little street in Middleton. Good friendly service and a great selection of local brews. Get a salad as well. You won't be disappointed. I would definitely be a regular here.

Food is terrific, as is the service. If you cannot get a good vibe from this place, you can't get one. Not cheapest, but very very tasty.

Place is far from bad - just nothing popped out to me. We had 4 kinds of pizza too. They have a lot of gluten free options, so I guess that is somewhat novel?

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,...

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.

Thank GoTrek99
