Had a hankering for pizza while on a business trip to Edmonton and found this spot. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza. I've just spent the last 3 years in Europe, so I've had the chance to experience Italy's real pizza and I can confidently state that this restaurant has it right. Thin crust, fresh ingredients,...

Hi Marcel. Only one thing to correct about our oven. It is actually natural gas operated, not wood fired. Nonetheless the quality is just as amazing. Thanks for taking the time to review us, for coming and hope to see you back again. More

I am proud to say I've been eating at Famoso since there was only one location downtown. Great Pizza. Real pizza. Reasonably priced for the quality. Service experience is unique, seating yourself and counter ordering, but its no problem. Its kinda refreshing . Famoso is always clean and the restrooms are always in perfect order.I wish I had one now.

The variety of pizzas is always appealing! Add to that some incredible salad options, and this is a great place for lunch or supper.

Thank you so much for coming to our restaurant, we appreciate your review and we hope to see you back again. You should try adding chicken to the Pistachio Pesto pasta, it tastes so much better. Thanks More

Service is quick and friendly. The wine list is low priced and well curated. We often stop here for a quick and satisfying lunch break while shopping at WEM.

After my trip to Italy, I would definitely have to say that Famoso is one of the best examples of authentic Neopolitan pizza in Edmonton. I reccommend the Capricciosa and Mozzarella Balls.

I love the texture of the pizza dough, it's not standard take out pizza, it's not heavy and covered in cheese.They make an amazing Nutella latte that is like desert in a cup.

The pizza at Famoso is actually quite impressive and reminiscent of the pizza I had during my stay in Italy. I was super impressed and have been an avid repeat customer.

We each ordered our own large pizza and, because the crust was so light, we were not stuffed. I had a pizza with "white sauce" - so good and unusual, with Brussels sprouts and ham and figs, etc. Yummy! Lots of 'gluten smart" choices on the menu. I also tried their new gluten free beer - nice. Our server was... More

Famoso is without a doubt the worst pizza place I've ever eaten at. As a master pizza maker I can be a little picky about how my pizzas are made, itemized, and presented but when my son spit it out and refused to take another bite I knew I wasn't wrong. The pizza is under-topped, over-sauced, lightly cheesed, and the... More
