I first went to Pizza Madness over 5 years ago and I've been coming back ever since. Whenever I'm down in Canon or Florence, I make sure to hit up Pizza Madness. For me, I love all the crazy art/statues/friezes on the walls, it's "Madness", yes, but comforting in a really Mom and Pop sort of way. Their pizza is definitely good pizza, but you cannot pass up their bread sticks with their house ranch. Whenever my parents come out to Colorado to visit we always have to hit up Pizza Madness. A few years back I took my out-of-state girl friend and she absolutely loved the place! It also helped that Marty was around to lighten the mood and put on one of the honest to god best close-up magic shows around. Even when he isn't around, the place is still pretty energetic and fun. Their selection of brews always seems to please those of age around too.
We've had lunch delivered several times and each time the pizza arrived hot, on-time and totally NY style! Once you've tasted Hell's Kitchen pizza, you will NEVER go back to ordering from any of the pizza chains again. Give them a try. You will not be disappointed!!!

Who's got balls big enough to serve a hot dog for $10 by calling it a Chicago Dog, then serve it without sport peppers? OC.
Still a favorite place of mine, but their recent "Chicago-inspired Classics" spring menu has felt like a failure in both concept and execution.
The $16.99 10oz loin steak is acceptable but not inspiring and not a great value. The $9.99 Chicago Dog is a straight ripoff.
amazed that a small town mentality about food would dictate bad reviews. Have you people not waited an hour or more for good food. Get a clue The pizza is great . get over the instant society we live in and be patient. or get your lazy but off the couch and go puck it up.
I agree with the previous comments regarding poor service. I have found the hostess' very unfriendly and the food mediocre.
I absolutely love Pizzeria Rustica. Their caprese salad is awesome, and I have never had a bad meal there. I particularily like the Salsicca pizza - it is to die for. Their service is great - last time I was there the general manager came out to say to our table himself. Great time all around.
Whatever your feeling is on their pizza, their inability to refrain from having their commodity trash and all other trash blowing all over speaks to me volumes as to whether or NOT I am going to consume anything from their 8th St. branch. I have watched their staff missing the dumpster and not giving a damn so I'd have to say they don't care inside either.
Wow. I cannot believe the reviews I'm reading. I've ate there three times (including tonight) and never had a bad experience. In fact, I've been to 40 States and 4 continents and given my vast experience the world over, I cannot think of anything bad to say about Pizzeria Rustica... and I've never seen a trashcan in the seating area and never heard of them running out of dough... which could happen considering good pizza like this is made with dough that has had a chance to ferment.
My husband and I eat here 2-3 times a month. The price is great and the pizza is amazing. The service is always friendly and prompt. The resturant is very clean and fun. We just ate their last night and are once again more the happy. We will be back in a couple of weeks :)
They have a web page to order pizza, but they do not check it. WTF! Idiots.
good food, great desserts. beer is just okay.
The menu is huge, which is usually a bad sign. The food was average - nothing special. Typical soul-less national chain.
The salad bar is good, the pizza is ok. Mostly about atmosphere, great to take kids and old people.
Let's be honest....we can still choose where to spend our money for food and this is never my first choice. Delivery is COMPLETELY out of the question as I have NEVER gotten anything good from them in that department but if you go into the restaurant, the food is good. Not great, but good. I have found the best service at the Monument location and everything I have eaten there was good. First choice is always Papa Murphys but occasionally we will stop in and eat at Borriello Brothers.
The 8th Street location is the worst!!! The first time we ordered from there we ordered a Margarita Pizza and had it delivered. We were told it would be 45 minutes delivery time. We were called at 45 minutes and informed they were behind and it would be another 15 minutes. The pizza actually arrived one hour after that phone call. And we didn't receive a Margarita Pizza, it was a CHEESE PIZZA!!! Plus it was cold. I called the manager and was told I would receive a free 18" Margarita Pizza the next time I called in. We gave them another shot about 30 days later and it took them over a hour and 10 minutes to deliver when we were told it would be 45 minutes and the pizza was cold again!!! At least the pizza resembled a Margarita Pizza a little. We will NEVER eat there again and have told all of our friends about this. We will stick with Papa Murphy's from now on.
awesome...and to- scottwkeller 1999- what kind of woman are you...you dont walk into a pizzaria (a NY one at that)...and ask for "slices" and seperate checks...its PIZZA...and AWESOME at that
I agree with the last review. I've eaten there numerous times b/c the pizza tastes so good. Personally, I've never had a bad experience, but I've noticed the staff tends to become a little tense when service picks up. They've only been open a couple months, so I think once they get there work flow down things should fine. As for the food. The Hell Fire is one of the best pizzas I've ever tasted. My kids love the mac & cheese pizza. Yes, mac & cheese. We all think the homemade cheesecake tastes great as well. The taste of the food is worth dropping in trying for yourself.
SMD and scottwkeller1999 comments certainly provide opposite end of the spectrum reviews of Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza. Must say I agree with both. Have visited more than once, and some days the service and the food are great, other days just the food is great. Staffing is certainly an issue and the owner's attitude is hit or miss, depending on the day you visit. Chalking this up to new restaurant nerves, and hope they work out the kinks as this is great pizza!
Our visit last Wednesday was nothing like the previous review. Owner was friendly, and gladly explained the menu items to us. The wait for the pizza was a bit long, but the pizza was worth the wait. We had a couple slices of the special while we waited for our pizzas to be cooked. The slices were a bit cool - not bad tasting though. The pizzas we ordered were awesome! We will definitely be back - hopefully he has a liquor license by then.
So where to begin.....
Positives-decent NY crust. Waitress.....
Negatives-most everything else.
Here is how our visit went. Arrived 7 pm. almost full house, good sign. waited a few moments for the staff to put a few tables together for the 6 of us. 3 couples, 3 checks. two couples ordered full pizzas, one couple ordered slices. Slice couple served 20 minutes after order placed. no pizza for the rest of us for another 20 minutes. 40 minutes in pizza arrived. ordered half Hells Kitchen Hot special, the other half 4 cheese, minus ricotta, plus olives. not made correctly. ricotta present, no olives. let the waitress know and she promised us a small three cheese with olives, brought a large. 1st couple went to counter to pay, listed what she was paying for and the OWNER says, " who is paying for the rest of what your table ate?" my friend replied "the other couples who are standing behind me", the owner turned and walked away, she says to him, "the pizza was really good", he did not hear as he was already walking away. while we were there, the delivery guy was fired and the cook was sent to deliver pizzas...I saw him leave three times while we were there, when he returned from the delivery to the kitchen, he did not wash his hands.
bottom line-wont be back....rude owner, not appreciative of his customers(IMHO), pizza ok, gotta try Joey's now.
