“Great Pizza & salad”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

arrived late night n jasper and they still served us food at 10 pm. Great pizza (very authentic Italian style) . We ordered soups which were nice but the other standout was a Famosa salad

Price was was reasonable and I think great value for money.

“Truly special”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Like most 20 something males, I eat a lot of pizza. I thought I had eaten good thin crust pizza. I was wrong. After a long day of hiking, Famoso's delicious pizza, relaxed atmosphere, and excellent quality of service were just what we needed. I was shocked to learn that this is a chain restaurant - it doesn't feel like one at all. I had the pleasure of meeting the manager, Dominique, after we returned for our second visit during our stay in Jasper. He explained that almost everything, from the ingredients, to the oven, to the very concept of cheap Neopolitan pizza itself, is imported from Italy.

We sampled three pizzas: pepperoni with roasted mushrooms, margherita, and the marinara. All three were stunningly delicious (and affordable too). On our last visit we tried the gelato, which impressed as well.

I wish the Famoso crew all the best. It's a great concept, executed perfectly, with enormous potential. Managers like Dominique really know how to take care of their customers, too.

In summary, I love this place. It's the best pizza experience I've ever had. You should eat there!

“If you love pizza and pasta this is the place to be in jasper”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We are 100% vegetarian and this place had a good variety of vegetarian food to offer. Soup was excellent as well as Pizza and Pasta. A good place to eat or take out in Jasper.

“Inefficient and unacceptable.”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We ordered pizza to go in this place where we found the staff to be indifferent and unhelpful. We were advised of a ten minute wait on ordering, checked on this after twenty minutes then again after thirty five at which point the waitress took the time to find our pizzas in a "warming oven". She insisted that they had only just been put in there. However, when we began to eat them they were both cold.
Inefficient and unacceptable.
