Delicious

Surprisingly close in quality to a pizza made in its original country- Italy! Perfectly styled restaurant with well selected staff and kind service. Good choice of wine variety and natural cozy atmosphere. Perfect place to socialize and take a friend or family for lunch or dinner.

This was our first time here, and perhaps it won't be our last. And, we'll recommend this place to anyone we know is coming to Edmonton. Really good pizza, and they have a gluten-free option. Once we figured out how to order- you take your order to the counter first- service was quick and friendly.

Lived in Edmonton for 5 years and this was by far our fav pizza place. This is the original Famoso and definitely the best. The food always tastes a little better here. Fresh ingredients and the pizzas are made very quickly right in front of you. Everything on the menu is solid and we always had an Italian soda to... More

Simply my favorite place to get pizza. I love how they make their pizza's and their ingredients are always fresh and delicious. While the parking can be limited sometimes I have always had great service here. You can even call in advance and pick it up to go, which I have done on several occasions.

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... 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

FamosoNeapolitan, Guest Relations Manager at Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria - Jasper Ave, responded to this review

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.
