Went on a Monday night of a long weekend on which I was visiting Calgary. Was passing it on the way to take a friend home, had visited a couple of Famoso's in Edmonton, so thought we'd stop and have a bite to eat. Both ordered the small pizza and tomato soup. I have enjoyed the pizza's before but had... More

For a chain this is one of my favorites for thin crust pizza and fresh salads. The atmosphere is pretty casual and the food comes pretty quick. I like that they serve the large salads in big bowls to make it easy for sharing and taking your own portions.

We have eaten at a number of Famoso locations and the food is consistently good as is the service. My only complaint is the menu is very small font with grey writing so it is really hard to read if you are not young and hip (but old and a hippie). Also the prices are a bit deceptive in an... More

I like all pizza. Thin crust in my mind needs to be crispy. The pizza hear has soggy pizza, ok tomato sauce that lacks any zing and sparse toppings. Pretty pricy for what you get. The best part was the service.

Famoso on 4th St, serves mostly pizzas and other Italian eats. The joint was very quiet with two occupied tables. My son, husband and I shared 2 pizzas, Cavaletti and Quattro Formagia, both came in an instant freshly baked however the taste was lacking, they were a tad bland. The service was fast and furious and couteous. Famoso is just... More

When this pizzeria first opened the ambiance, service and food was wonderful. The lights were dimmed to a comfortable evening glow, the service was prompt and very friendly and the food was delicious and consistent. I had not been in a while and decided to go the other night. I'm not sure what has happened to this restaurant. Maybe it... More

The pizza was horrible. There was a lot of liquid on and under the crust. The whole thing was a soggy mess. It was like pizza dough in soup.

Always great service and awesome pizza. Ok so it's not your thick sliced pizza but it sure is tasty. I find this is a wonderful place to bring friends as it's reasonably priced and the ambiance is just so hip and fresh

Ordered two pizzas for takeout. Very nice, well cooked and good value. Friendly staff. Good beer choice too. Had to sample a couple while the pizza was being cooked.
