We live near famoso and come here probably once a month. Whether for appetizers, pizza, or pasta everything promises to be great. They have an amazing selection of drinks and their staff is extremely accommodating.

Granted we ordered take-out from this restaurant, so that definitely could have affected the overall experience, this was honestly the worst pizza I've ever had. The crust was so thin, and there was so much sauce that it was a disgusting sloppy wet mess. Our salad also came with no dressing at all. Completely disappointed.

We were at Famoso recently and have been several times before. The pizzas are all delicious using the wood fired cooking process and with thin crusts. The menu is extensive so all can choose their favorite! They also have salads and pastas, too. To start, we shared a dish of olives and also cheese meatballs in tomato sauce which were... More

We've been here a few times, since it's a short walk from home. We were lucky to get in with no wait on a Thursday night. Their pizza is awesome with fresh delicious toppings. The tomato sauce is the best, made only from tomatoes, nothing else! We shared the chicken Thai pizza, a change from the usual, and thoroughly enjoyed... More

So I read some reviews about the place. And I think anyone that wants to try this pizza should know that it is authentic Italian pizza - super thin crust (so thin that a piece may seem soggy - it can't hold the weight of even the sauce on top so you almost have to curl it together by the... More

I have eaten here once every other week for a couple of years, like the food, generally order wine, a pizzetta, salad, dessert. Tonight it was busy, but no line, so not terribly busy, and everyone around me had been served. After waiting for 20 minutes for someone to take my order I decided I would finish reading my paper,...

It's alright. Pizza is decent, again not great, but satisfying. The customer service is very good and they do cater to families which is nice. It is starting to have the feel of a midrange chain restaurant though...more Kelsey's or Eastside Mario's thab upscale chain...

Only ever had take out from here so can't comment on the service, however, the pizza is delicious. We had the primavera bianco pizza, and it is one of our favourites!

When traveling we like napolitan wood fired pizza. The highest rated was closed that day so we tried famoso. Would never go back if lived there. The pizza was soggy and the entire experient unpleasant
