Famoso is a casual dining restaurant that serves fresh fast authentic Neapolitan pizza along with flatbreads and salads. Neapolitan pizza was created in Naples, Italy over 200 years ago. Famoso’s delicious thin-crust pizzas are incomparable to other pizzas available in Edmonton today. The pizzas are made in a wood burning forno oven at an extremely high temperature. The light, soft and crispy pizzas are easy to digest because of the low levels of gluten in the flour.
Satisfy your Appetite and Palate
Their hand stretched thin crust pizzas use of fresh fior-di-latte mozzarella and basil; and imported San Marzano tomatoes and Italian flour. A popular pick at Famoso is the margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil, cherry tomatoes, roasted mushrooms, olives and artichokes. The mouth-watering Gorgonzola walnut salad is made with crisp romaine lettuce, tossed in Gorgonzola walnut dressing topped with crushed walnuts, semi-dried cranberries and Gorgonzola cheese. The gelato made with authentic artisan style Italian ice cream with low levels of butter fat and no preservatives will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Cozy and Funky Atmosphere
Famoso is a fully licensed restaurant that serves house and premium wines, bottled beer, and a limited selection of highballs. The cozy booths, great music and funky atmosphere welcome you to stay a while and relax while you enjoy pizza with a nice bottle of wine. The Famoso staff is trained by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, an Italian organization dedicated to preserving the standards of Neapolitan pizza.
