Saw this pizza joint on a travel show (DDD maybe). Had the quesadilla pizza and it was awesome. Friendly staff.

So many people have told me that Ian's Pizza is the best in Madison, WI, so I thought I'd give it a try for lunch. When you arrive, the customer queue gets funneled into a line that twists past staff who make made-to-order salads, and then you move on to the pizzas that are pre-prepared and held under warming lights....

Love that you can get their pizza by the slice. They offer something for every pizza lover and probably things you didn't even know you liked. I am not a fan of traditional mac-n-cheese but there is something about it on their pizza that is AMAZING! Big fan of their salads also. You will not be disappointed.

If visiting Madison this is a must stop pizza joint. Line up and select your slice from a wide array of choices and they heat it for you in large pizza ovens. Great thin crust pieces... try the mac n cheese, or philly cheese steak. Very casual, grab your slices and grab a seat somewhere. No wait staff, great value... More

We were in Madison for a concert at the Orpheum and just wandered into Ian's for some pre-show grub. Ian's offers many, many pizza choices. The night we were there, I dined on a basil, garlic mushroom while my husband had something involving a lot of meat. I asked the counter person what was on an interesting looking pie and... More

This is a neat Madison restaurant. They have many kinds of pizza from standard to exotic and you order the pizza at a counter then they heat it in an oven and call you when its ready. The pizza and salads are quite good and the prices are very reasonable.

No topping on a cardboard crust. The place was empty at dinner time with 50000 students nearby. That gives you a sense of the quality.

With a evening show at the Overture we decided to grab a quick bite to eat. Ian's was perfect. Small salad & a unique slice of pizza. They have so many options it's hard to choose! Food was very good. I will be back!

When we stopped by we were shopping on State street. We smelled something great and followed the smell into Ian's. Our favorite by far is Smokey and the Bandit pizza. It's a Chicken, Bacon, Ranch and BBQ sauce pizza that is to die for. We will continue to stop there when we're in town highly recommend trying their food. They... More
