A word from La Madia - A Contemporary Pizzeria
At La Madia, two pleasures - great food and distinctive, delicious wines - come together. La Madia is an urban restaurant that upholds Italian tradition. Every day, our chefs make our pizza dough and fresh pasta from scratch from little more than flour, water, and salt.
The menu is designed for sharing, with flavor-packed, wood-fired pizzas that change seasonally, inventive salads, and savory pasta dishes. Desserts are all made on the premises, in keeping with what's available in the market.The wine list is a wine lover's dream, with more than 75 wines by the glass and hundreds of bottles. And every week, we feature two of our favorite wines for just $6 per glass. In addition to wine and more than 25 beers, La Madia offers innovative cocktails, many of which are made from spirits infused in-house.

    Everything was perfect until we were waiting and waiting and waiting for the pizza's to come out. It was 2:00 - 2:30 in the afternoon so it wasn't busy. No reason for the pizzas to take 45 minutes from the time of ordering. I actually had to ask the waiter for an ETA after he disappeared for a while. However, the quality and taste of the food made it worth the wait (and that's rare for me to admit!).

    Great food - the chef even checked on us to see if we like the food. Nice waiter (Frazier). Did not really appreciate the hostess being so obvious about writing the time we arrived (7:52 pm for a 7:30 reservation) on our ticket. Maybe we are being overly sensitive b/c we were late, but we still did not appreciate it. Nonetheless, I would still go back b/c the triple pepperoni pizza was so good.

    A wonderful place for a great meal with the kids or the adults. An amazing twist on the old standard of pizza and pasta. Interesting wine list with very approachable and reasonably priced wines. Service was attentive without being intrusive and the staff has a good knowledge of the wine list. If you want a great meal in a relaxed and friendly place, La Madia is a great spot.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/11/2008
    We had 9pm reservations and had to wait over 20 mins for our table. Our appetizer came out at a good time, but then we had over a half hour until our pizza and risotto came. Our waitress sort of disappeared. The pizza's cheese had resolidified since it was probably sitting for a while before she got to it and the poor risotto's sauce had separated and the meat was cold. I was hoping for better since I have had great take out from this place through work. We were given new dishes after waiting for some time again and were comped a pretty sad 'gelato'. Just because it's ice cream at an Italian restaurant doesn't mean it's gelato. We lived in Rome for some time and I thought this would be a good birthday dinner for my husband's bday. :(

    This was my first time dining at La Madia and I was beyond impressed. I brought my friend for her birthday lunch and the staff made it a very special occasion. From their Happy Birthday greeting to a complementary dessert, they truly went out of their way to make the event special. On top of that the food was incredible- we both raved about our dishes as well as our shared appetizer. I honestly can't say enough about this restaurant- we will be back!

    Great pizza and wine selection, and the service was excellent (as in all my past visits) the only downside was my husband and I were seated in the "private" dining room with a table of six, just us and them, which was seemed a little odd. But they were packed, so I suppose they had to make use of all of their space.

    Excellent wine selection. We had the buffalo mozzarella pizza, and it was delicious. Love the thin crust. I also had the gnocchi with sausage and spinach. Great flavors and not too heavy. I'll be back.

    LaMadia is an excellent restuarant when it comes to food. I was a little disappointed in where I was seated (at the back of the restaurant near the kitchen) when I had a reservation through Open Table for 8:30 p.m. The host did not even ask me if the table was sufficient or whether I was willing to wait until a better table came available.I would return to the restaurant only if I was seated in the front.
