“Great pizza, service and prices”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Located at the corner of University and Parmenter in downtown Middleton, there is nothing special about the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant. In fact, the benches in the booths are so high that you would have to be about 5'10" for your feet to touch the floor. However, it is well worth going here. The staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant is very clean. They serve wine and beer at reasonable prices. Now for the most important part. Their pizza is delicious. The ingredients are fresh. There are a variety of specialty pizza options. The crust is light and flavorful. This restaurant is ideal for lunch or dinner. The menu is the same for both. We have been here about 6 times

“Good pizza in casual atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

A number of different types of pizza and related dishes. Good selection of beers. Casual atmosphere. Very nice for an informal family dinner where many shared their pizza.

“What happened?”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

This was one if our favorite places to go and I think I have even reviewed this before... But they need to figure out what's going on because it's going downhill fast. It was a Friday night, we were seated in basement and forgotten. A server helped a table next to us but never acknowledged us. When I asked, he said he'd get our server.. It ends up he's our server AND the manager! What manager would have let customers sit there ignored? Then our favorite pizza just lacked in everything! And for 22 bucks- it best be awesome... Barely any of the toppings and very dry. We asked and he said that there are new managers and new kitchen staff... What a shame. We've been coming for years and won't be back for a long time.. Until they save themselves.... It's a bummer.

“Pizza, salads, and soup are excellent”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

They also have a good lunch menu and nice play area for the kid. If you are looking for some unique pizza, this is a great choice.

“Great Pizza, Friendly Staff, and a Playroom for Kids!”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

Our family has recently discovered Roman Candle and it has become our weekly ritual. It is a restaurants our whole family enjoys. We go often and we haven't found a pizza we didn't like. The kids love the playroom in the basement. The playroom isn't filled with coin operated machines but instead real toys! It is a great place for families with young kids since the kids can play while the pizza is cooking. There is even ice cream available. It truely has everything a kid and grown up could want in a laid back dining experience (including many of the local beers on tap).
