The two best pizza option in Madison are the venerable 'Paisans' and the 'Urban Slice'. Located on the ground inside the 'Union South' building of the UW-Madison campus there is quick counter service where you can get an over-sized 'slice' of pepperoni or cheese pizza and usually two other options du jour. The crust is chewy, the outer crust crispy.... More

After 6 months not eating here, I decided to give it a try today to see if anything has changed. What a mistake. The crust is still a flavorless cracker, and the pizza is still overly greasy. I think offering a veggie pizza is great, but it is more cheese than veggies. Not sure why they do not offer supreme... More

Urban slice is the Stephen Baldwin of campus run restaurants on campus. The only time you should ever get a slice of "pizza" is when all other restaurants in the area are closed. These greasy triangles with cardboard quality dough make you question what happened in your life that made you end up trying to enjoy this slap in the... More

It's a no from me. This pizza would maybe be good if you were literally starving. But otherwise probably not. Please walk 30 steps to Ginger Root and you will be much happier!

A good place to enjoy the student setting and good student food with some entertainment on occasion and close proximity to the campus

I'm not a huge fan of pizza. I might have pizza once or twice a year if the mood hits me. Usually my husband would ask me if we could get pizza for dinner and I would say no. After my husband and I moved from New York to Madison, Wisconsin, I was curious to try the pizza here and... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating at Urban Slice during a recent trip to Madison. We were both born and raised in New York so we know a little bit about authentic New York Style pizza and Urban Slice did not disappoint! Not only was this the best pizza that we have ever had outside of New... More
