We had a group for dinner, both adult and children. Everyone found something yummy to eat. The kids has mac and cheese and a pizza with just alfredo and cheese. The adults enjoyed tap ales and pizza far and away better than the "usual". I recommend the Professional!

Passing through the Madison area at supper time and not yet into Illinois where we were hoping to find a restaurant that served real Chicago-style pizza, we ended up at Roman Candle. This place was simple, yet trendy, and had a a good flow of patrons. It had a children's area -- hence several families with young kids, and lots... More

Roman Candle serves really good and fresh pizza. It's a bit pricey and the restaurant is a little noisy but it is definitely some of the best pizza in Madison.

So, after a very long, very horrible day, someone recommended Roman Candle to us. We got there 20 minutes before closing, and the staff couldn't have been more gracious. I think they could tell we had had such a difficult day, and they told us it was NOT too late to order a pizza, and we could stay as long... More

I LOVE their garlic breadsticks and the pepperoni pizza. The breadsticks are served hot, and coated with herbs. Delicious. We always seem to have the same great server. A gentleman with gauges in his ears and a great attitude.

I did an "average" rating but I actually liked the pizza. We had a medium mushroom and onion pizza . It was good but the toppings were sparse. We also ordered the "Jumbo". Though good with an amazing teriyaki ginger sauce, the wings were far from jumbo. Those two items, with a coupon, came to about $26.00. It was a... More

Just got back to the United States and decided to not cool so we got Roman Candle. The service was perfect as usual but the pizza was different, it was just not as good as it was before we left. I would still go back but this particular time was just okay.

We had a coupon so decided to try out The Roman Candle Pizzeria. Upon entering we were told to sit where ever we wanted. The booths on the sides all have little table-tops which pull down from the walls to put the pizzas on over the tables themselves. For the center tables, they bring out stands to put the pizzas...

Our visit to the Roman Candle will not go down in History. Service was extremely slow, but in defense of the establishment, they said they had a large lunch crowd which wiped them out. Wiped them out of silverware, glasses, dishes and probably wait staff too. Service was extremely slow.

What a fun little place to find! I'd gone to my two "regular" places only to find lines going out the doors. On a whim, I stopped by Roman Candle. So happy that I did! Service was excellent and the variety of pizza/pasta was great. Being a huge pesto fan, I got the Pestoral Pizza (made to order) and it... More
