This was our first visit and were very surprised at the poor service. It appears that the take-out orders take presidence over the dine -in customers so we wait a LONG time for a simple pizza and soup w/salad. The wait staff were not not friendly, not greeting us or giving any indication that they were swamped on a Sunday... More

We are fans of traditional Neapolitan pizza, and Famoso does not disappoint. They prepare all of the traditional Italian combos, as well as a few more creative pizzas. My personal favorites to date are the cavoletti and the patate panchetta. Their salads are fresh and delicious, and the proscuitto-wrapped mozza balls are divine. Their tomato sauce is so tasty!

Placed our order while cook was chopping. Poor server could hardly hear, & therefor missed a crucial piece of the order. When pizza came out, had the wrong crust & other order was correct. New pizza came out within 5-7 minutes & was very under cooked. If we had more time I would have sent it back. Coffee was smooth... More

I have never written a review before, as I have never experienced such horrible service. We came to this location and waited about 10 min to be seated, which is fine, but as we looked around there wasn't many people in this small restaurant, and all the tables available had dirty dishes and glasses on them; every single one. As... More

Amazing Italian style pizza with perfect thin crust, nice and good variety of sides and deserts; maybe a bit pricy but we're repeating on a regular basis

We have been to this particular restaurant a few times including right after they opened and had the old system of self ordering. Our daughter picked this place to celebrate passing her exams (not graduation which will be celebrated in a more posh restaurant!) and we were disappointed. Our waitress was extremely nice and attentive but the one who brought... More

After a third terrible experience we will never be returning to Famoso on Country Hills. Even though we kept having horrendous experiences, we kept returning because the pizza was delicious. But after last night we will no longer be supporting such a disorganized business with terrible customer service. We called to order take out and told it would be an... More
