On Frances Street near the Kohl Center and UW Campus or on State Street near the Capitol, both locations serve the best pizza in Madison. Go for a slice of the famous Mac & Cheese pizza. You won't be disappointed. Then try a second slice of something that looks good from their rotating menu.

All kinds of unique pizzas. I am more of a traditionalist, but if you have a visitor, they might be impressed by the selection. Quick and fast too. Not much ambiance and eat in is noisy. But a nice friendly community minded place.

Had a macaroni and cheese pizza that was unbelievable! Extra large pizza $20 and fills you up! Fed 4 of us. One of the best places we ate at in Madison. Truly enjoyed it!

I've heard about Ian's for years, but never went until last month. I have been missing out! I had the "Smokey & the Bandit" pizza by the slice. Seriously, unbelievably good. The slice was huge and I was full, but I couldn't help myself...I kept eating until it was gone. My daughter had the Mac & Cheese pizza, and she... More

We were looking for something quick that we could take along with us. Pizza sounded good, but we didn't really have time for a sit-down eatery. Enter Ian's Pizza by The Slice! It was perfect. I ordered several slices, they boxed it up for me, and by the time my spouse made the block in our car, I was back... More

Any pie you order -- veggie, meaty -- is always delicious. But to really experience/enjoy Ian's local flavor, kids and adults alike MUST order the Macaroni and Cheese Pizza... it's legendary.
