Very busy but service was OK, despite the fact that we had to go up to the bar to order. Food came quite quickly. White pizza was OK, the dough could have been a lot crisper and to be really Neapolitan it should have been thinner too. Toppings were VERY garlicky - and reather greasy - I don't remember this...

My husband and I had lunch at Famoso at West Edmonton Mall this past Sunday. I ordered the Cappriciosa pizza and a glass of red wine; my husband ordered the Versuvius pizza. Service was outstanding - the pizza dough "boss" came to our table and chatted with us about pizza dough, since I had asked the server a question about... More

Excellant pizza although servings are small. Good place to go for something different. My wife and 8 yr old kid both love it. Pricey!

We loved the atmosphere and the food! Warm and inviting and very informal. The pizza is wonderful but the appetizers are even better - especially the mozza balls in marinara sauce! It's a little hard to get a table but you can go have a drink at a bar next door and they will call when your table is ready.... More

I always leave Famoso satisfied. They have a great selection of pizzas, not your normal pepperoni or hawaiin types and the dessert pizzas are amazing! It's great for lunch or dinner, eat-in or take-out. The prices are very reasonable as well. I recommend Famoso to everyone I know and the Nutella Banana Pizza is a must!

My wife and I have been going here for the past 3 plus years and often marvel at its growth here in Edmonton. I really like the pizza, but would probably just as much like Panago's pizza. My wife however thinks that Famoso has no equal. One year ago we visited Italy and I found that the Neapolitan pizza from... More

Famoso Pizza's are freshly made, on uber thin crust, with a variety of delisious toppings; it is like being in Italy. The service is quick and always friendly. My favorite pizza is the 4 cheese with white sauce. Also the portions of pizza are huge that I can never finish more then half of my pizza. Great food and great... More

This has got to be one of the best pizza places going. We have been at every franchise in edmonton and they have all been consistently good. We even got to the WEM one on opening day. They thouroly messed up the bill, but they were honest about it and the food was excellent. That goes a long way to... More
