I went there after a walk around Mission district, had my favorite Margareta, with 7-UP and Dolce and Ice Cream. Bananas Caramelized, This was good for me as I am a diabetic and needed some sweets and it sure worked, and had to be good and ready for me in minutes. It was made just like I like it with... More

We have eaten at a number of Famoso locations and the food is consistently good as is the service. My only complaint is the menu is very small font with grey writing so it is really hard to read if you are not young and hip (but old and a hippie). Also the prices are a bit deceptive in an... More

I like all pizza. Thin crust in my mind needs to be crispy. The pizza hear has soggy pizza, ok tomato sauce that lacks any zing and sparse toppings. Pretty pricy for what you get. The best part was the service.

Famoso on 4th St, serves mostly pizzas and other Italian eats. The joint was very quiet with two occupied tables. My son, husband and I shared 2 pizzas, Cavaletti and Quattro Formagia, both came in an instant freshly baked however the taste was lacking, they were a tad bland. The service was fast and furious and couteous. Famoso is just... More

When this pizzeria first opened the ambiance, service and food was wonderful. The lights were dimmed to a comfortable evening glow, the service was prompt and very friendly and the food was delicious and consistent. I had not been in a while and decided to go the other night. I'm not sure what has happened to this restaurant. Maybe it... More

The pizza was horrible. There was a lot of liquid on and under the crust. The whole thing was a soggy mess. It was like pizza dough in soup.

Always great service and awesome pizza. Ok so it's not your thick sliced pizza but it sure is tasty. I find this is a wonderful place to bring friends as it's reasonably priced and the ambiance is just so hip and fresh

Ordered two pizzas for takeout. Very nice, well cooked and good value. Friendly staff. Good beer choice too. Had to sample a couple while the pizza was being cooked.

Stopped in for lunch. Had used Yelp and o help me narrow down my numerous options around me (first mistake). Famoso seems to have good ratings, decent looking pizza and a lunch special that appealed to me. First disappointment was there was only inside seating. I got over this quickly. Decided to stay with the ~$12 lunch special. Ordered a... More

The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was nice but the food was not great. Pizza dough was undercooked and ruined the taste of the pizza.
