I always have been pleased with the pizza. Tried the entrée special this time and it was average at best. Stick to the pizza.

We had heard great things about this place. We were there unfortunately in January, so we were unable to appreciate its location near the lake. It was lasagna night, so I decided to try that. I found it tasteless, and boring...

Went during Madison Food Week and had lunch. My starter was the Porta Salad which is addictive. I'm not sure what all is in that salad, but I would go back just for that salad. For my second course I had the meatball sandwich. Some of the best meatballs I've ever had. Dessert was a Turtle something or another...which was delicious and I took in a to-go box. The views are amazing and I would highly recommend.

This is a great location for families with good pizza and drink selections. In the summer, the patio has a lovely lake view and lots of outdoor seating, which is getting more and more rare in Madison. Good for families and larger groups.

My dad LOVES Paisans pizza since his days at UW in the 60s! Just stopped and picked up a pizza to take up north to him! If I look at the $36 price as a gift to him, rather than a pizza, I can almost stop choking!

With that said, the food is excellent and the $36 per pizza is paying for the amazing view - sit on the deck if you can!
