We had a lovely pizza here! It was deliciously fresh and light. The crust was crisp and the toppings cooked just right. We've seen the line ups in the past so arrived ahead of the crowds and had great service. However, as we were finishing up, the restaurant filled up quickly and got very noisy. It was a Friday night and seemed like a lot of families were coming in with loud and hungry kids.

The food was only so-so, and after a 45 minute wait that was disappointing. There is no bar in the restaurant, so you either end up standing in the hallway or outside in the cold. My wife had been wanting to try this place, but I don think we will be going back.

We went to Famoso pizza for dinner to try something different. We went early because there is always a lineup. We were seated right away and the server asked us if it was our first time, it was, she explained that you write your order on an order sheet at the table then take it to the order area once that is done they bring your food and drinks. We had only experienced this once before in a pub in N Ireland. The food was very good as was the service our drinks were late coming, after our food, the manager came over and apologized and gave us a discount on our bill. We would go back again.

Best pizza we have had. Margherita is so single but you can't find it at many places. If you order take out make sure you ask for the pie "well done" otherwise it's a little runny.
It's a little pricy for pizza even thou it's very good, not something to replace papa John's or the like

This place came highly recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. Pizza style and toppings were reminiscent of Italian pizza, which, for me, was a wonderful culinary experience. My brought-up-on-Dominos companion was not as enthralled with the style (and he did not enjoy authentic Italian pizza either), but the toppings were fresh, the tomato sauce actually tasted like real tomatoes (yay!), and the crust was delightful. The restaurant itself has a nice modern design with wall-length sliding windows that let you dine in fresh air when the weather is nice. There isn't much of a view, but it's a great little casual spot to enjoy pizza almost like it is served in Italy.
