Visiting from a province where you order one big pizza for everyone to enjoy it was a big of a difference to order your own just for you. the pizza is made as you order it so ther is a bit of a wait. We had the antipasto which was good and the pizza itself well worth the wait. Light... More

I am a sucker for a fresh salad and Famoso does not fail. I love the Famoso salad, the dressing is spectular. I also really enjoy the tomato soup. The wine selection is solid for a restaurant this size. My friend who ordered the pizza really enjoyed it the crust was perfect she said. I also like the sandwiches.

We always enjoy the Famoso experience. Delicious pizza that is always light, refreshing and very satisfying. Wasn't sure I would like the thin crust and out of the ordinary toppings but really am a Famoso lover now! Step outside your comfort zone and what you think pizza should be. You will be delightfully surprised. The best one in town with... More

Once you have tried Famoso's pizza you will never want to eat those fast food pizzas again. This is how pizza should be, with fresh ingredients, hand-made for you when you order it, with a light, delicious crust that doesn't take away from the flavor of the toppings. Highly recommended.

Probably the best pizza place in Edmonton! Very light, fresh and delicious thin crust pizza. The tomato soup is amazing too. Pleasant décor, friendly staff, fast service. We keep going back there; there is also a West Edmonton Mall location, just as good for food, but a bit more crowded...

Famoso's is a bit on the pricier side but it is well worth. Staff are great, attentive and friendly. Atmosphere is casual and trendy. The pizza is made from all fresh ingredients and you can tell that when you are eating it. Their Tomato Basil soup is the best soup I have ever had at a restaurant. Famoso's is a... More

we always value natural and fresh ingredients and this pizza place is the best for us. Prepared right in front of you and using the most natural ingredients, this is the best pizza place we have tried. Thin crust, fresh mozzarella and baked to perfection. The service is always very good. The prices are great. It does get busy around... More

Famoso Salad is a favorite. The Riverbend location is wonderful but too small -I'm hoping they will expand soon!
