Review 1:

Ok. I feel like I need to confess. I'm disappointed in myself for not knowing about the best pizza in town for as long as I lived here. Two friends told me (thanks Jolene & Sherry) about this place and I've always driven by but didn't give it the time I wish I had sooner. Beer on draft. Brick oven  pizza. Neapolitan style. Fresh. Fast. Delicious. They even have specials. I plan on getting a different pizza each time. Their salads look filling. Their pizza crust is just right. Perfectly cooked and the crust a bit chewy. So good. Do it family style. Get a couple of different pizzas with your family and friends. Try it out. Parking is definitely not ideal but there's always parking a block over. Totally worth it. Don't think about it, just go. You won't regret it.

Possibly the best wood-fired pizza in Madison! This small restaurant is rather easy to miss at first, but we're glad we stopped for a try! Being vegetarians there was more than a couple of choices for my husband and I to choose from. We got a Quattro Formaggi, Pesto pizza, and a Greek salad for tonight and wolfed it down in minutes. The cheeses on the Quattro Formaggi is to die for; savory melted cheese complementing a tangy tomato sauce - a combination where neither overpowers the other. The pesto pizza was wonderful as well, a little overwhelming towards the last few slices but we were able to balance it off with a refreshing salad on the side. The pizzas were light, crispy and not as greasy as your traditional pizzas. A classic Neapolitan. Definitely makes pizza dining a 'healthy' experience!

If you're near Monroe Street, this is definitely one of my favorite places to eat. Service is generally pretty fast, as the format is that you order at the counter and the staff brings out the pizza to you. The check-in feature is pretty neat for the free flatbread.  Probably wouldn't pay for the flatbread, but it was a nice appetizer that just doesn't compare to how good the pizzas are. The cremini pizza is my go-to; the combination of mushrooms is super savory, and the white sauce isn't overpowering. Mushrooms and caramelized onions are my weakness, put them together with cheese, and then ooh boy what a wonderful combination. I get this almost every time that I come; it's too good to stay away if you're a mushroom fiend. I tried the diavola too, which was such a contrast from the cremini. The spiciness of the pepperoni with fresh mozzarella was a lighter taste, but both were absolutely delicious!  My only qualm is that multiple times that I've visited is that, sometimes, because the dough is hand rolled out, the middle can sometimes be super thin and get a little soggy, that that by no means keeps me from coming back. One pizza is more than enough for one person, but I would definitely recommend bringing a friend and splitting two because there are so many wonderful combinations to try!
