We stay in the area often in the summer months and love to pick up a pizza and an order of wings to bring back to the hotel for dinner. Florentine pizza is the BOMB, and their wings are the best in the area!

We ordered pizzas and spaghetti and meatballs at this local pizza joint, and when my sister-in-law put the boxes in my car and I smelled that rich garlicky aroma, I knew that the food was probably going to be really tasty. The pizzas were delicious and the two people who ordered the spaghetti raved about it throughout the meal. This... More

Fine pizza in a local spot. It's not at all fancy, but the pizza is good and the Greek salad was loaded with feta cheese. Staff was very accommodating with requests. I'd return again. My only complaint is that the mushrooms were canned--I'm a dried mushroom fan myself.......

Had a small with pepperoni and sausage. It came out from the kitchen pretty quickly and was pretty good. It wasn't the best pizza I had on my trip to Rhode island but it definitely want the worst either. I would consider eating there again when I am in the area.

I called to order a pizza for delivery and waited an hour an a half. When I called to see why the pizza hadn't come they said it's on its way. Waited some more and called back just for the owner to tell me "We don't deliver to your area!!!!" Why wasn't I informed initially? Instead of fixing the situation... More

This is a local pizza place. We order out from these guys quite frequently. I like their pizza and grinders. My son loves their mozzarella sticks. Good local place to eat and the food is good. Just be aware that if you dine in, you will definitely leave smelling like food and french fries.

My husband and I took our twin grand kids (age9) there for pizza. Great selection. Vichy's Veggie was super and the kids loved their pepperoni pizza. While the eat in section is small, the atmosphere is pleasant.

Nice little family-owed local business. The pizza is good as well as some of the other choices, wings, gyros . . .

Famous has dining area but it is always noisy and the air thick and smoky due to the small restaurant space and apparently poor ventilation in the kitchen. You smell like you've been dipped in the frying grease before you are finished eating-that Famous Pizza scent. For inexpensive pizza, you can't beat the value. If you like your pizza a... More
