Perfect pizza. Easy to order and fast to the table. All 3 pizzas we ordered were fresh and delicious. If I was ever in town again I would go here.

Delicious ! The best crust I have ever had....and we are middle aged ...lol. It is an unassuming place. Give your order at the counter, sit down and they will bring your happiness on a platter. The large size isn't what I would say is LARGE , so order two and enjoy.

We have eaten pizza here a few times here in the last months and we were never disappointed! The crust is tasty and crispy, the tomato sauce is good and the ingredients are fresh. I just wish they would use a different kind of mozzarella (I am personally not a huge of fan of the current one they use). Their... More

Great neighborhood spot on Monroe. Love the concept. Counter service with table delivery. Quick turnaround, thanks to wood fire oven. They use very fresh ingredients. Creative topping options. The crust is cracker crisp; not too thick. Love that you can have a glass of wine with pizza, even though it's counter service. Nutella pizza for dessert is fun.

Pizza Brutta is the best pizza I have ever eaten. Seriously good. The crust is chewy and crispy at the same time. I do not live in Madison, but whenever I travel there this place is a must stop. BIANCA + Asiago = AMAZING. So freaking good!! Go get some. Like now.

Excellent wood fire pizzas with tastey crust and topped with delicious ingredients. They could kick up the spice on the diovolio a bit more, but that's just me.

Pizza Brutta is the best Pizza in Madison, hands down. You can call ahead and pre-order your pizza for pick-up, making it an easy, Friday night option. I love the beet, goat cheese, balsamic salad to accompany the pizza. It's often crowded, but for good reason. Lot's of vegetarian options. The pizzas aren't big, but they are delicious.

My son and I dropped in for lunch on a winter holiday weekday while running errands on Monroe Street. He had the sausage bambini and I the market special white pizza (roasted Brussels sprouts, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, bacon, garlic and Calabrian chilis).

Great pizza, fresh ingredients, wonderful crush and backed in a brick oven, fast and delicious, just the way I like it. Nice friendly place, I can see it getting busy. Parking is limited to the surrounding streets so may have a few blocks to walk but well worth it.

I came here with my family for good before a UW sporting event. The food was amazing. The business is unique and you order up front, then they deliver to you and your party at the table. The food was really good for the price. You can make your own or choose a variety of other options. Would highly recommend... More
