“Laid back atmosphere and a good bite”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

First time ever at Famoso, I went for the Sweet BBQ Chicken Pizza, was simply delicious and the fresh tomatos and onions made even better. All in all the atmosphere was great and staff were really friendly. Laid back atmosphere and a good bite, highly recommended.

“Authentic, delicious, unique”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Heads and tails above most pizza places in the city, Famoso truly offers something a little different. The pizza is always great, but if you're expecting Pizza Hut you'd best look elsewhere. Fresh crushed tomato sauces, nice mixes of toppings, fresh baked thin crust... love it. Nice wine list and dessert selection as well. The "order at the front" concept is a little inconvenient but that's about it.

“The bottom is always burnt”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

As far as I can tell, the point of Neapolitan pizza according to Famoso is that there's char on the bottom of the pizza. I dislike burned, watery pizza... So after trying twice since the fresh basil was lovely, I will probably not be returning here again.

The service and drinks were tasty, their soup is delicious, and their ice creams were wonderful - so if you do go, it's not all bad!

“Always good, always a fresh menu”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I love this little noisy place, with great food and a menu that is refreshed often. Great atmosphere and food. Going there is one of my summer pleasures. Outside seating is lovely.
