Famoso is always busy! The pizza is great and the ingredients are fresh. They are so light that you don't feel stuffed after. The pastas and mains are equally as delicious and the servers are awesome

Great food at this pizza joint. The fire oven makes the pizza tastes that much better. The gelato is pretty tasty as well. Service is good and in the summer the doors on the side open up which makes for nice atmosphere.

Spacious restaurant and close to where I live. Great Pasta and staffs are very accommodating. I just hope they could add more Pasta and dessert menu to choose from. Overall, a decent restaurant for family and friends.

We live near famoso and come here probably once a month. Whether for appetizers, pizza, or pasta everything promises to be great. They have an amazing selection of drinks and their staff is extremely accommodating.

We were at Famoso recently and have been several times before. The pizzas are all delicious using the wood fired cooking process and with thin crusts. The menu is extensive so all can choose their favorite! They also have salads and pastas, too. To start,...More

We've been here a few times, since it's a short walk from home. We were lucky to get in with no wait on a Thursday night. Their pizza is awesome with fresh delicious toppings. The tomato sauce is the best, made only from tomatoes, nothing...More
