“Pizza - Thin Crust”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Wood fire oven, excellent crust, authentic toppings with fabulous gelato. Great quality cheese. Open atmosphere - a bit noisy but best pizza I've eaten in years.

“Excellent Pizza on Vancouver Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We went looking for a Pizza in Victoria and were happy to find Famoso on Trip Adviser. We did not know it was part of a Pizza chain and were very impressed with the food, service,cleanliness, and the management's attention to detail. We were trying to eat light as we had a large lunch, So we shared a salad (the Gorgonzola Walnut Salad) which was very good and a small Pistachio Pesto Pizza which is a Margerita with Pistachio Pesto added to it. It was quite good with a thin crust and cooked to perfection. We did not try dessert but most everyone around us was having their Gelato and were very happy campers. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone with a Pizza attack that must be attended to.

“Some of the best pizza in N.A.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Wood fired ovens, thin crust pizza, fresh ingredients, and assorted beverages...What could be better? Famoso Neapolitan Pizza offers very well presented food and friendly service for a bargain in downtown Victoria. We have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed with the food or service. The quality and quantity of food is a bargain.

“Good Pizza & Gelato”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Opened until 2300 in the area with extra good pizza and gelato. We tried different combination with four adults and turned out with all our stomach fully filled! When struggled to return for dessert, the Gelato added a fantastic round up for the night.

“Best Pizza Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

First we started with the Tapenade Trio with flat bread ($11.00). Then the Capricciosa Pizza ($14.75). Crusts were thin, toppings light but delicious.Just the way Italy makes them. Finishing with a Peroni beer (1 pint $7.50). Excellent meal. With tax $35.66 for two people. Service was wonderful, the manager stopped by and talked to us, he was Italian. Very friendly.
