Daughter #2 moved to Madison, and asked me, where should I be sure to go out to eat? So this is the start of a series - Places to eat in Madison
First up - Paisan's.
Funniest, and most accurate review of Paisan's I have read said "Ownership of a UW alum license plate and likeliness of an appreciation for Paisan's are in direct correlation.". That is a true statement - or at least certainly the correlation is there for anyone who has gone to UW Madison.
There is a definite split in views on Paisan's - either people think it is the best thing ever, or they think, meh, kind of average. Put me in the column of best thing ever. First up - best Pizza ever. Thin, crispy crust, great toppings (love me some of that italian sausage). The Porta salad also gets high marks. Sandwiches - good. Pasta - only meh. Stick with the Pizza.
If your interested in an adult beverage, you have to have the Sangria - available in white or red versions, it is the original wine cooler, only it tastes good.
Only downfall is the prices have gone up - $13 for a small pitcher of sangria? That used to buy you two large!
