About

Drawing inspiration from the rich tradition of Italian cuisine, Fox’s signature flavors utilize superior ingredients, from local, sustainable meats and vegetables to internationally-foraged herbs and spices.

Inspired-Italian fare takes center stage in Osteria La Madia’s warm and rustic, yet contemporary atmosphere. Offerings include wood-fired pizzas, handcrafted pastas, fresh artisan salads and more. Menu highlights include Wild Boar Pappardelle and a Roman classic Cacio e Pepe.

This is absolutely our favorite place for thin crust pizza. They have several other non-pizza entree items and a great selection of salads as well. The atmosphere is cozy however still contemporary. Great wine flights too. We are always made to feel welcome whenever we visit.

We had a great waitress since we had a group we were able to try 8 pizzas. We all said They were the we ever had.
This was complimented by the great service from our lovely waitress. Definitely a return event.

Good pizza, the service was spot on and the wine selection is very good. I'd probably skip the gelato next time.

We went to La Madia 'cuz of the October lunch special - $7 bucks for soup or salad plus a pizza. Great deal. Ordinarily, this combo is $12: still a very good deal. But what's really great is La Madia's pizza. My wife and I are NYC pizza snobs and we love this place. Dough is exactly the right thickness for the style with chewy consistency, puffy edge (telling of hand prep, not put through a roller), and slight char on the bottom. Perfect. Toppings are first-rate and generously portioned. The pizza size is exactly right for a hungry individual. What's not to love?

They have the best pizza ever. Organic Crack egg pizza is unique and strongly recommended.

My friend and I eat at La Madia on almost every trip to Chicago. We are huge fans of the clam pizza! It's perfect. The salads are also terrific, and we also love the Luigi Bosco Malbec. Check it out - it's great!

For the first time I did not order a pizza, big, huge mistake. Like Pretty Woman Huge mistake. The short ribs were terrible, without season. If the gravy was suppose to make up for it, it did not. It should probably be taken off the menu all together. I didn't send it back because I was with new friends. Possibly my fault for going rouge, but order the pizza. Also service was terribly slow for a mild Sunday night. I will note that their apps and pizza are lovely.
