Famoso is always busy! The pizza is great and the ingredients are fresh. They are so light that you don't feel stuffed after. The pastas and mains are equally as delicious and the servers are awesome

Great food at this pizza joint. The fire oven makes the pizza tastes that much better. The gelato is pretty tasty as well. Service is good and in the summer the doors on the side open up which makes for nice atmosphere.

Spacious restaurant and close to where I live. Great Pasta and staffs are very accommodating. I just hope they could add more Pasta and dessert menu to choose from. Overall, a decent restaurant for family and friends.

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
