I've been a Famous Pizza House customer for 30+ years. As a kid me and my friends would meet there on the weekend for some of the best pizza, grinders and "suicides" in Norwalk. My mother knew "Pete" the owner and would send us to pick up chili dogs once a week from "Pete's". I absolutely love the buffalo wings,... More

I ordered an eggplant Parmesan sandwich that was so greasy it was inedible. My husband and son shared a pizza, which was also drowning in grease. The waitress was nice and ended up not charging for the sandwich, acknowledging that it looked "a little greasy." We won't be going back to this place!!

Hi there, I hope you'll give us the benefit of the doubt on this one! I know we can do better for you. There should be a good amount of juiciness since we make everything fresh, but of course I don't want your meal to be overly-greasy. Like I said, I hope you'll decide to come back and see us...

My husband and our 2 sons went in for a late lunch. It was pretty busy and a waitress quickly cleared a table for us. Wasn't cleaned off but she was busy. We ordered cheese garlic bread and it was so good and crunchy. We ordered a large pizza half pepperoni. It was so good. Will definitely come back when... More

The food was amazing!!!! This place serves the BEST buffalo wings I've ever had in my life. I read a review about the white pizza, and it didn't disappoint. The server wasn't overly friendly, but she was professional. If I'm ever in the area again, this will be one of my first stops!

We had a large group and a last minute change of plans, they were gratefully able to accommodate our party of 19 at the last minute. We had a mix of pizza and salads, which were all quite good. Very pleasant experience all in all.

They have a pretty substantial menu for a pizza place. I had one of their grinders and it had onions and peppers and it was very good. The service is much better than expected for this type of establishment. I agree with the other reviews that praise the waitress. She shared with me that she recently became a US citizen... More

I'd give 4 stars for the actual food, but this 5 star review is for the service. Norma was our server and she was absolutely excellent. She took care of us, laughed with us, and completely made our meal that much better. I've only lived in Norwalk for 10 weeks so far, and she has been by far the best... More
