Service is always great, the menu is great, has a few classic recipes and a few modern twists, wine selection is great, and we feel really comfortable dining there as a family with our 3 year old.

Went for an early dinner on Sunday. Pizza was all right,
The service was a little different at famoso it is a self service style, I find it hard to leave a tip at this kind of restaurant because the service is just doing quality checks and clearing plates. I did leave a good tip though.
When we got our plates they were dirty and we were a table of 4, they did not leave enough napkins, had to ask for more napkins and then clean plates.
Food was quick and all right, probably will not go back.

Went here for lunch with people from work, Casual decor, friendly staff and good service. You can have small pizzas and a side such as the Walnut Gorgonsola Salad, very good. Thin crust pizza with many different types of toppings. Good variety of pizza and salads. Would recommend this to visitors to Calgary or Calgarians who live or work in the area. Decent prices.

This is my go to restaurant when meeting friends for lunch. Love, love, love their fresh mozzarella balls wrapped in prosciutto and served with their amazing San Marzano tomato sauce. Their salads are fresh and delicious and I really enjoy their thin wood fired pizzas. Tomato Bisque to die for and desserts are excellent as well. The ambience is terrific, casual, woody interior with floor to ceiling windows that in the summer open like little doors. Don't really like that when you arrive you must write down your order and take it to the front and then from there they bring it to you and will take table side orders after that. A bit strange and I don't understand why it's done that way. Nevertheless, won't stop me from going as often as possible!

Well where to start. Famoso rocks!! I work at an office close to the McKenzie town area and this is one of our favorite lunch spots. Fantastic pizza, wine and service. We've tried numerous pizzas on the menu our favorite was the Don Andreas which has now been taken off the menu. Close second is by far the BBQ chicken. The servers and very attentive and very friendly, the chefs are great. The general manager, Dennis obviously take pride in his restaurant and his work. Thank you Dennis. We always be regulars!!
