We've eaten here on two occasions this week. First, we went in for carry out (2 pizzas). Service was amazing in the restaurant, but we didn't realize until we arrived home that our pizzas weren't cut properly. We basically had to tear the pieces into uneven slices, so we just cut them ourselves. There were cut marks on the crusts,... More

I could go here just for the tomato bisque alone...And the gorgonzola walnut salad! I think those 2 are outstanding items on the menu. The fact that you can get it in a combo is a plus!

I have always enjoyed Famoso and am never disappointed when I go. The food is reminiscent of when I visited Italy and satisfying. The menu is just a tad on the pricy side.

They recently made some changes to the menu, switching sandwich items & pizza which in my opinion was a poor idea. The sandwich is supposed to be served hot and is now cold. (Sofia Lauren) would no longer recommend. We also had to wait over seven minutes for someone to check on us after we were initially seated and the... More

Have been here several times. Food is good, service is good however management isn't as professional as they could be. Not at this visit, but prior lunchtime visits manager/owner has taken up several tables behind bar with his computer and work when people were waiting for tables. He refused to move so people could have a table. Not impressive

We really enjoyed our lunch here, not too busy; they changed their format where you had to go up front and order and pay, to waiter service; much nicer. Always good food here.

The best pizza we had during our Canada trip. Cool place, lovely and friendly waitresses, fantastic food. They have quite a number of vegetarian options. I especially liked the Verde Neapolitan Pizza. We liked it so much we ate lunch and dinner here in the same day...with some shopping at the Commons in between.

First of all Famoso is a pizza restaurant chain and in most restaurants of this chain I've been to the food is really good so no complaints there. Looking at this particular restaurant I was extremely disappointed. I came with my family in the evening. The way we were greeted by one of the servers was so unfriendly that one... More

The wife loves this place...I cant say the same. Floor was dirty, food was cold and the service was weird. We had three servers for some reason none of whom knew what was actually in the toppings. I ordered a gf and dairy free pizza, it was terrible, crust tasted raw and the topping for a meat lovers pizza were... More
