After my trip to Italy, I would definitely have to say that Famoso is one of the best examples of authentic Neopolitan pizza in Edmonton. I reccommend the Capricciosa and Mozzarella Balls.

I love the texture of the pizza dough, it's not standard take out pizza, it's not heavy and covered in cheese.They make an amazing Nutella latte that is like desert in a cup.

The pizza at Famoso is actually quite impressive and reminiscent of the pizza I had during my stay in Italy. I was super impressed and have been an avid repeat customer.

My son and I attended Famoso on a whim, and we're completely satisfied. The flatbread with hummus and tzatziki was huge and absolutely amazing! The hummus in particular was garlicy and supremely noteworthy. The pizzas we had were very well done with fresh ingredients and...More

I've been to Famosa numerous times and the marguerita pizza does not disappoint. However I did have some pasta once and that really did let me down as this is an Italian restaurant and I was really looking forward to something a bit better than...More

This pizzeria would have a 5* rating if it wasn't for the cooking staff and servers that changes every month! This has definitely hurt the consistency of the food they make. Basically a hit and miss but I have been more satisfied than not. Still...More
