Business lunch - place was very clean. No strong-scents that i vould identify. Pizza had awesome flavor...probably one of the best flavors I have ever had. Not too much salt, not too much garlic, and just the right amount of tomatoes and tomato sause. This...More

This thin crust pizza is delicious! We ordered the BBQ chicken and the meat lovers (Sicilian I believe) and both were great. My only disappointment would be that the pizza was so thin crust and it was a little hard to eat. Other than that,...More

Got hungry while shopping so thought I’d try Famoso as it was literally right in front of me - had the Monday special margarita pizza - barely poured my beer into the glass and my pizza was ready. It was just okay for me -...More

Thin crust baked in stone oven. The flavors of basil and other herbs linger. Tired 2 varieties. One with egg on top and the other with prosciutto. Both yummy. Had raspberry beer without alcohol. Unique! Tiramisu is heavenly.

This place needs to smarten up. Bad management and bad service alongside bad food and you just have a failure. Not impressed with the way they dealt with a 10 person seating we had and how we were an after thought. Food was gross and...More

My family thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Service started out great until the restaurant got busier. The manager had our waitress with tables all over including outside, not her fault, but it did affect service. The Mattina pizza was excellent. Our kids enjoyed the smaller...More

I could go here just for the tomato bisque alone...And the gorgonzola walnut salad! I think those 2 are outstanding items on the menu. The fact that you can get it in a combo is a plus!

I have always enjoyed Famoso and am never disappointed when I go. The food is reminiscent of when I visited Italy and satisfying. The menu is just a tad on the pricy side.
