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). It was seriously tasty (and I've had good pizza all over the world), if a bit salty for... More

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

We got carry-out pizza. The toppings and cheese were first rate. The pizzas are wood-fired and the crust is excellent.The staff were incredibly friendly and one told us to open the pizza boxes slightly so our pizza did not steam on the way back to the hotel. If we lived in Madison we would be regulars!

We were in town visiting family and they took us to Pizza Brutta. It was excellent! I had the beet salad and the Prosciuto Arrugala white pizza and they were both fantastic. Around the table a number of different pizzas were ordered and shared and everything looked fantastic. I highly recommend this kid friendly dinner option!

I've eaten here several times. They have pizza and sandwiches which are served only at lunch time before the oven gets too hot to continue to make them. They were recommended in our local paper and I do really enjoy them.

Thin, crust with random air bubbles- flavorful sauce, great toppings all combined to make this one of my favorite places for pizza. My taste buds start imagining the incredible flavors just at the mention of Pizza Brutta's name! We've been to both the original location on Monroe Street & the new location in Middleton- both invoke the same response. Fast... More
