Some of the best traditional pizza available and some other very good menu options (tomato soup, salads).

We were looking for somewhere for our family to eat on a chilly weekday evening in downtown Victoria. Often with young children you are forced to find a chain restaurant with mediocre food but Famoso was the exact opposite. It had a fun bespoke atmosphere that promised something a little different and certainly delivered with great thin crusty pizzas and lots of topping choices. Famoso works well for families but would also be great for a casual evening out with friends. Good location in the tourist section of Victoria.

Interesting concept...grab a table, order up at the counter, then the rest is table service. Pizzas are cooked for 90 seconds (i think) and are thin crust. My pizza was great. Think I had the panchetta/arugula. My husband had the Thai and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will eat here again on your next trip to Victoria.

We ran across this place on the way back to our hotel after a disappointing dinner at a more upscale restaurant. We decided to go in for gelato and coffee.

The service was very friendly and we liked the relaxed atmosphere. The coffee was good and the gelato was tasty.
We liked it so much, we came back the next day for lunch.

You go up to the counter to order, but the food and drinks are brought to your table. The pizza is tasty. The crust is a little thicker than I prefer, but that's Neapolitan vs. the Roman style I like best.

We will be back when we visit Victoria again.
