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

We didn't eat in bur did take out of 2 different Pizzas. My husband picked up the Pizza and said all the staff were very friendly and busy cooking but the results were not apparent in the quality of the Pizza. Crusts were undercooked, pale, floppy . The tomato sauce absolutely tasteless ....not even a hint of garlic or other... More

After traveling to Naples back in 2010 and returning to Edmonton with a yearning for what is easily the world's finest pizza... it was a pleasant surprise to find Famoso and its offerings. It still doesn't touch the perfection that is found in Naples, but it is a helluva lot cheaper than taking the plane. :) It's a delight to... More

My son and I attended Famoso on a whim, and we're completely satisfied. The flatbread with hummus and tzatziki was huge and absolutely amazing! The hummus in particular was garlicy and supremely noteworthy. The pizzas we had were very well done with fresh ingredients and done with some flair. The crust was perfect, the best I've had in a while.... More

I've been to Famosa numerous times and the marguerita pizza does not disappoint. However I did have some pasta once and that really did let me down as this is an Italian restaurant and I was really looking forward to something a bit better than I could prepare at home. Sometimes service was a bit slow (west Ed location) but... More
