We visited Famoso for dinner on April 11. The server was great and the place was lively. We had the pesto linguini and four-cheese pizza. The four cheese pizza was drenched in oil and had a funny aftertaste to it. Perhaps the cheese quality is...More

Brought a group of nine family members for a get together. Pizza was very good with creative ingredients. A bit light on cheese, but very flavourful and otherwise well appointed. Liked the beer selection although it wasn't a big one. I had the Abruzzo pizza...More

We had several dishes. They have a nice combo of soup or salad with a pasta or pizza. The high heat oven makes for a nice crispy crust that's not too dry. Fire sandwiches are a nice substitute for paninis.

The service was great but the 2- 7"pizzas we ordered were very dry, tasteless and cold. There was hardly any topping on them. The walnut gorgonzola salad was very good. Would not go back again though. Dr. Oetker makes a better pizza!
