We didn't eat in bur did take out of 2 different Pizzas. My husband picked up the Pizza and said all the staff were very friendly and busy cooking but the results were not apparent in the quality of the Pizza. Crusts were undercooked, pale, floppy . The tomato sauce absolutely tasteless ....not even a hint of garlic or other... More

After traveling to Naples back in 2010 and returning to Edmonton with a yearning for what is easily the world's finest pizza... it was a pleasant surprise to find Famoso and its offerings. It still doesn't touch the perfection that is found in Naples, but it is a helluva lot cheaper than taking the plane. :) It's a delight to... More

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 done with some flair. The crust was perfect, the best I've had in a while.... 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 I could prepare at home. Sometimes service was a bit slow (west Ed location) but... 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 a great pizza and a friendly service. However, is their affogatto's that keep making me... More

Went there for the first time on new year's eve for dinner with friends. Ordered the Sweet BBQ Chicken Pizza and Don Andreas Pizza, and personally loved the sweet deliciousness of the BBQ Chicken! Don Andreas was tasty too, with the benefit of getting generous amount of healthy ingredients like avocados and corns. They also feature special cocktails/alcoholic beverages everyday,... More

Real pizza. Tastes very authentic and has the perfect level of crisp. Amazing combination with the mouth watering tomato bisque with a scoop of ricotta in the middle. Having flashbacks even just typing this now!

Glad I came before noon to snag a booth as the other 3 were taken within minutes. The seating include booths and stools and high tables. It gets busy at lunch but I noticed the food was coming out quick. The booth from us was occupied twice during our stay. There's also a larger book at the back to accommodate... More

It's really hard to rate this when you have places like Rosso and Parlour in the city! It's obviously good, but I'd go to other places first. I do think though that their Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque is super yummy!
