Years ago I had an experience that completely changed my idea of Pizza. I was in Poona, India ( yes I know, India and Pizza don't go together) and I went out one night to a restaurant near my ashram. The place was packed with...More

The pizza here grossly is overrated with little or no depth in terms of value or flavor. When you see the bill you'll realize that all your paying for is the large overhead they endure carrying the famoso name. We spent over 128 bucks for...More

If you are looking for a good place to have a Neapolitan style pizza with a nice relaxed atmosphere this is the place. You go up to the counter and order your food, they will bring it out to you. Terrific Affagato for dessert;)!

I love this restaurant! The pizza is excellent, and I personally recommend the tomato salad with the buffalo cheese. The restaurant is popular and small, so I do recommend you arrive early to avoid waiting too long in line for a seat / table. Oh,...More

You can watch them make your pizza, from flattening the dough to putting it in their pizza oven to be fire roasted. Real ingredients that taste great.

The pizza, nah. Underdone and squishy crust (1 star at best) accompanied by wine tasting (3 star) was no fun. Salads seemed older than the incredibly inept server-guy. Twice. Crowd was upscale 20's, meat-market cute-ish and tanned even in winter. They loved the wine and...More

We love Famoso! It's become one of our regular date-night locations. The crowd is a mix of young and old, but mainly mid-20's-30's crowd, but there is always a family there with young kids too. If you come around supper time, be prepared to wait....More
