The best pizza we had during our Canada trip. Cool place, lovely and friendly waitresses, fantastic food. They have quite a number of vegetarian options. I especially liked the Verde Neapolitan Pizza. We liked it so much we ate lunch and dinner here in the same day...with some shopping at the Commons in between.

First of all Famoso is a pizza restaurant chain and in most restaurants of this chain I've been to the food is really good so no complaints there. Looking at this particular restaurant I was extremely disappointed. I came with my family in the evening. The way we were greeted by one of the servers was so unfriendly that one... More

The wife loves this place...I cant say the same. Floor was dirty, food was cold and the service was weird. We had three servers for some reason none of whom knew what was actually in the toppings. I ordered a gf and dairy free pizza, it was terrible, crust tasted raw and the topping for a meat lovers pizza were... More

We love how light, fresh and healthy the pizza tasted. It's nice to not have greasy pizza once and a while. Nice decor & friendly staff. They were very considerate of our newborn baby and went out of their way to accomodate us. Overall excellent experience and we will be back!

Awesome service, awesome food. They let us bring in our own ice cream cake, kept frozen for us, and brought it out for us when the time was right. They even offered to hold our table so we could come back after our movie! Service this good is so rare. Definitely coming back.

I usually go here to grab a small pizza and salad to take to my hotel room. Although they are usually very busy, the staff has always been nice.

Really nice to have a tasty gluten free pizza! Lots of unique pizza toppings. Sorbet is delicious! Note that if you don't like chewy, thin crust, you won't like this pizza.

This was the first Famoso Neopolitan pizzeria we visited in town , and so far, the best. The service is very good and speedy, you order at the till, and wait at your table to be served. I like their pizzas, good varieties and sizes. The caffé latte they serve is also very good. This is normally a very busy... More

This place appeared to be quite busy and our wait time was about 15 minutes. they have a order counter where you place your order then they bring your drinks and food to your table. Their menu is different if you don't know much about... More
