I went to Famoso last week with my gluten-free foodies group. They have a zero-tolerance policy on cross-contamination of gluten. Twenty of us had pasta and pizza that was just delicious. The pizza crusts are unusual, unlike anything I've had before. The pasta sauces are varied and gourmet. (For celiacs, they're all served over GF penne pasta.) Very good service.... More

Good place for a lunch! My boyfriend is a pizza fan , but he only like the crust at this place. Beer and grapefruit was good. Caesar need more dressing! Also check groupon for deals ! And I wish they have a different room for customers with newborns! I have one right behind me annoying me the whole time by... More

Extensive menu with creative pizzas! The service is excellent, I asked for a couple of extra things and no problem at all! I will try the other location in Vancouver for sure.

We ate here with a group of 5, three of which have lived for an extended time in Italy, each trying a different pizza. The ingredients were all fresh and tasty and there was a good selection to chose from. I can't imagine anybody not being able to find something to their liking here as far as Pizza goes. The...

Stopped by for dinner while shopping downtown on vacation. I had a decent Korean BBQ pizza. It was a bit salty but still tasted great. Service was good and good selection of beer. The pizza crust was amazing and I would kill for the recipe. Good experience. Would return for sure!

My Italian wife loves her authentic food and while this franchise isn't quite as authentic as it's competition, it offers a spin on Pizzas that are well executed at a decent price. My go to is the Thai Chicken with a peanut sauce Base topped with carrots, cilantro, peanuts and sprouts. It resembles a popular Noodle Box dish, the Spicy... More

We heard some good things about this place from our friends, and since we saw a groupon deal, we decided to give it a try. We like the type of crust, but the topping didn't wow us. We already have a favorite pizza place in the city, which wows us always. The good thing about this place is it's located... More

Used a groupon for this restaurant. The value wasn't enough for two moderately priced items; good for one 11" and 7" pizza with no extras. I tried the seasonal paneta 🍕. It was good but i would have liked more greens on it like spinach, arugula or dill to freshen it up a bit. The crust was thin and light.... More
