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

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
