It has a great location. It has decent food. It has sort of good service. And its price for lunch was okay. That is the problem, I had higher expectations for this place. Sure, it is a chain and it has its standards, but it also has no character. The staff was pleasant and efficient but in the same way... More

We were seated right away which was great. Ordered our drinks and were served them in a timely manner - the non spicy ceaser was still spicy. ( believe the rim salt had some chilli flakes - why would you use that if someone requests a ceaser not spicy ) Food came quickly BBQ pizza was delicious and good size... More

The servers are excellent and responsive to anything you need. Pizza and salads are very good, but a bit pricey for what you get. Personal sized pizza is ~$15 Cdn, which is high in comparison to pizza prices we are used to, but it is a tourist city so you can expect to pay more, and food costs more in... More

I had the sandwich and it was delicious. My daughter ordered the salad and we split both. They were flavorful and filling. The menu could use a few more vegetarian options but I would eat here again for sure.

Great location, get a window seat, people watchers paradise, especially on a sunny day. Service was prompt and efficient, answered all our questions. If too much pizza for the price is a complaint then I guess we have one. !!

Went for lunch today. Great specials - mini pizza plus soup or salad/ 11.5 CAD. Pretty good and tasty fresh food. Great service. The place is kept clean and updated, very authentic looking and cozy.

Just returned from dinner at the Victoria location. Enjoyed their Margherita pizzas, on special Monday's​ for only $8. Nice thin crust, perfect texture, nice chewy edge crust. Needed a bit more basil and they quickly brought more. Staff very nice and helpful accommodating a tree nut allergy. One of the staff even carries an epipen.

My family came here during the Dine Around event and we were blown away by everything here. For $20, we got to choose an appetizer, dessert and ANY pizza from the regular menu. For $20! Some of those pizzas are $17 alone so the value was amazing. The meatballs I ordered as an appetizer were scaled down for the Dine... More

For some reason this particular Famoso location makes a delicious thin crust pizza, we think beating out everyone else in town! A Western Canadian chain pizzeria?!! I know, right? Competition is stiff but the Naples-inspired recipe is spot on here. We tried the South Surrey location and crust was way too thin and soggy, but Victoria is slam-on perfect. Crust... More
