“As good as it was last winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I wrote a review for this restaurant last winter. While staying in an Orlando timeshare we stumbled upon this gem while grocery shopping. It is hidden in a strip mall, a few doors down from a Publix and behind a McDonalds.
We had family with us, my daughter, SIL, 2 and 13 year old grandsons and the entire menu was a hit. We started with the Bruschetta. Thick slices of bread, toppings falling off onto the spring mix underneath. We not only ate it all but finished off the "salad" below.
With a two year old, we needed food quickly and they provided. Dinner was out before we could finish the bruschetta. With our dinners came some delicious garlic bread. We had pizza, steak, pasta with clam sauce, fruitta de mare, pasta with sausage and broccoli and traditional spaghetti with meatballs. We did bring some home, the four adults did their fair share, but even with the two kids ordering full meals, we did not have as many leftovers as one might imagine with these huge portions.
We will keep coming back everytime we are in Orlando.

“True Itallian cooking and Fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

While on a trip to the grocery store, my family and I noticed a couple restaurants within the same strip mall. One of the staff noticed that we were looking to eat and came out to welcome us and give them a try. You would not expect to find such a clean and inviting restaurant within a strip mall but WHAT A FIND! Growing up in an Italian family, and surrounded by wonderful cooks, I never expect the food to be good.....but it was!! We started with the bruschetta. Very delicious with tons of tomatoes and feta cheese atop of thick slices of Italian bread. They also brought us a basket of warm bread and butter. I had the spaghetti with clams and it was outstanding! Very generous portion with a light sauce of olive oil and garlic. I'm a small person and I cleaned my plate! Another family member had the eggplant parmesan and it was to die for! All served steaming hot and worth every penny! We will be stopping back in the future to pick something new off the menu AND dessert. One of the more memorable moments of our vacation. The only complaint that I have is that they are so far from my home!

“Disaster delivery”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The food was decent for the price but took 2 hours total for delivery after being told 45 mins.. Not good when you have starving children.. Called back several times and the older man on the end of the line said the driver was stuck in traffic.. Where was he coming from, Tampa?

“Authentic pizza that saved us during our trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn at SeaWorld & we really wanted pizza. We asked the front desk for ideas & I'm very pleased now that they recommended Famas. They delivered our pizzas fresh & hot to our hotel. We even tried a cannoli which had a very yummy rich texture/flavor. Very delicious all around. We'll take others on our nexr trip! We were so excited that we forgot to take pictures.

“Always good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Have been here several times over years and the food remains consistently good. Value and pricing is surprisingly good for the area.
