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.

Went to Firehouse for a grandson first communion.. Arrangements were made for a fixed price repast for 24. BYOB. The food was good served family style and consisted of eggplant rolitini, fried calamari and mixed salad for openers. The main dishes were rigatoni in nice red sauce and a hearty chicken scarpinello. The service was spotty but accommodating had to... More

Good Italian value, fast service.. Not high end but good for the price ... We had the shrimp and sausage over linguini and the seafood with clam mussel and shrimp over linguini - that was ok but not great mussels were shriveled up and the clans were served broken, but the shrimp were very good..

I was here a couple years ago and liked it, but didn't feel highly motivated to come back.Can't say what's changed, but obviously many others do come back, because the place was packed. The reason has to be the pizza, particularly their signature special. Thin crust, perfectly baked. Delicate bits of fresh veggies blended together with the meat for a... More
