Best pizza on Whyte Ave

Although it can get very busy and packed around lunchtime on a weekday and in the evening on the weekends, if you're craving a good pizza, this is the place to be. You can even call in and order in advance, then just walk in like you own the place and pick it up. The pay at the counter when... read more

We loved this eating establishment even introduced some friends to it. This past year though we have left with an awful taste in our mouths. Pizza is underdone especially in the centre and in the rolled crust too. We tried the Namao location and had a pizza with roasted garlic, the garlic was over roasted to the point that it... More

Apparently "Neapolitan" pizza is supposed to be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. It's to be eaten folded over like a sandwich. Cooked for 90 seconds in a 900 degree oven, this pizza need some more time. Although the various toppings on our Marghareta, Primavera and Funghi pizzas were tasty, the consistency was sloppy and wet. We... More

Thank you so much for your review. I apologize for the quality of pizza that you experience on your last visit. Like you said, Neapolitan pizza is best enjoyed when it is crispy but still chewy and moist. Sloppy and wet are not adjectives that we aspire to hear. I'm happy that you received great service and enjoyed the atmosphere,... More

Thin crust, good ingredients used to top the pizza. I have been going there for many years and never disappointed.

Probably the best thin thin crust pizza I have had since Tuscany Italy....Quattro cheese my favourite. Nice atmosphere. A little on the pricey side but a definite go to place. I believe they do take out.

Famoso serves Neapolitan style pizza, that means that the recipe comes from the Naples Italy area, where I have had very good Neapolitan Pizza. the pizza is thin crust and fired in a special oven. They have limited toppings compared to a pizza hut, dominos. Famoso is self service ordering and the pizza is served at your table. The pizza... More

When they say you eat with your eyes it is true. They served me a wet pizza with soggy crust and very little topping except for the sauce. It was not appetizing to look at but I tried if to see. The texture was not pleasing ( wet bread) I finished a slice of the 11" asked for the bill... More

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
