We were spending four weeks in January and February in Orlando. I found this restaurant (on Tripadvisor, thanks, Tripadvisor!) It was in a strip mall not far from our time share. We were shopping at the Publix and decided to try it because of all the great reviews.

We are originally from Upstate NY, a small town with great Italian food, and this place met every expectation possible. My husband had the steak Gorgonzola, we had spaghetti and meatballs, pesto chicken ravioli and pizza. They were all incredible. The servings were so big we were able to make lunch out of the leftovers the next day.

The wine selection was very nice, and very reasonable.

If we had one suggestion, it would be to serve regular coffee and offer decaf selections. They serve very good espresso and cappuccino, but no decaf.

One last note, the cannoli are great and Krystal was an awesome server.

(We later went to an extremely upscale Italian restaurant, also in Orlando. The food was incredibly expensive and was in no way better than what we ate at Famas, nor was the service.)

Authentic, delicious Italian food at reasonable prices! Do not be put off by the shopping center location. I am from NY and Italian-by-marriage, and Grandma would have been proud of the meatballs. I had spaghetti with clams, and they were fresh and the serving was generous. Desserts were homemade and delicious. I would love to go back before my vacation is over. MUCH better than the food at chains or that big theme park over there.

We were looking for the cleaners to get a pair of pants cleaned before the convention. We stopped in for a late lunch. Our waitress Krystal was very pleasant and accomadating. We enjoy lunch so much that we went back for dinner the following night. Great food at a fair price,bottle of wine,what more could you ask for!!!!!!!! We put it down in our favorites list for next trip back to Orlando.

Trying to avoid all the chains we went driving around while on vacation. Found this little place and could not have been more pleased! The steak Gorgonzola was Amazing! As was the chicken fettuccine. The fresh made bread completed the meal. Went back tonight for the pizza. If staying at Springhill Suites or Fairfield have them deliver to you and avoid Pizza Hut. Krystal was great, very friendly service. Thanks!

I stopped by and ordered a one topping to go. They made it fresh and quick of course when i get back to the room i'm missing my topping. That said darn good cheese pizza. i guess the star rating is based on where you start. I consider the main stream $5 pizza joints one star and this is much better, maybe 2 stars better. That said your not going to find a world class pizaza for $8 in any city, good value for money yes. 5 star no way.
