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

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
