Latest Falbo Brothers news and reviews

We went to the Park St. location on a summery evening to pick up our Falbo Bros. pie.

The interior was bleak, and no one was in sight...

...but that gave us a minute to peruse the menu, which was pretty extensive for a pizza place. It wasn't long before a dude came out to take our order.

We settled on the Hawaiian (ham, pineapple, and green peppers with BBQ sauce) and sat down under the neon sign to wait.

The wait was about 20 minutes, during which we kept ourselves amused by trying to name all 72 Wisconsin counties (in any order). A couple college guys - maybe the tenants of the apartment upstairs? - came in to buy slices, but seemed underwhelmed by the selection (2 lonely slices spinning round). They placed an order for a whole pizza and went out again.

Our wait was well worth it, however. Here's what we got:

We felt like we'd stayed long enough, so we took our spoils home to enjoy. The BBQ sauce was an awesome change, and complemented the other toppings perfectly.

It wasn't until later that we found out that Falbo Bros. is a chain, albeit a small one. And the pizza dudes seemed a little less than totally "with-it", giving the place a distinctly laid-back masculine feel.  Still, as a slightly cheaper alternative to Glass Nickel, it's pretty dang good.

No way! That's awesome.

I concur with the review. Falbo's is actually probably among the top tier of Madison Pizzerias in quality of ingredients. Terrible service and slow delivery keep this place largely avoided by what should be a boon market of nearby college students.
