The restaurant area is good and they make decent pasta. The pizza has really gone off in recent years. The dough is very thin and tasteless for most of the specialty pies. The toppings are scant and they seem to be tying to make the lowest cost pizzas possible for $3.50 a slice.

Nicky's Firehouse Restaurant specializes in sandwiches, pasta, pizza and salads. I went there with family twice for lunch in the last week and all our meals were very good. Portions are large and enough to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites. Meals are appropriately priced from the value perspective. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. Of note is...

Have been here a coupe of times for lunch and dinner. Many selections on the menu from pizza to sandwiches, salads and entrees. Recently had a pannini at lunch and was outstanding - had eggplant dinner entree and was ok. Not overly flavorful. A reservation on a Friday or Sat is a must. We had a reservation for 7 and... More

Being former Brooklynites I took my wife to the Firehouse for lunch since I have had exceptional pizza there twice in the past. Although the slice were good, they were tepid and would have been so much better if they were heated. Since we both already took a bite of of our slices there was no point in sending them... More

I passed this place so many times driving through Madison over the years and finally had a chance to try it and was surprised at how good it was! The place is cute inside, friendly waiter who was also helpful with suggestions. I was there for lunch and ordered a salad that was large enough to be my dinner and... More

Friendly management greets you as you enter -- it seems as if they really appreciate your business. There's an extensive Italian menu, and prices are moderate. Atmosphere is family-oriented and casual. We were here on a Wednesday night, and it was remarkably empty -- I'm not sure why since the food was so good. Our orders were tasty, fresh and... More

The Firehouse Restaurant and Pizza has been a landmark in Madison forever. The unique exterior is complemented by a cozy family friendly atmosphere within. The interior is divided into separate rooms which when the place is not that crowded has a bit of intimacy to it. When it is crowded even the separated rooms can not sufficiently keep the noise...

Have tried most of the menu which can be very good at times (pasta, especially) but the pizza, for my money, is the best in town. Thin crust pies are delicious and baked to perfection.
