Had their carry out pizza at a gathering. Some of frozen pizza crusts could shame their crust. Rubbery, artificial taste. Can't fathom venturing to their place.

Even though there are a bunch of Pizza shops throughout the town, Famous pizza has the majority of the business. For one thing it's centrally located. If you are walking in town it's perfect. The pizza is excellent, but they have a wide variety of different foods, I like their Cheese's steak sometimes. With their expansion some years ago they... More

Best pizza in Bethel, not to mention the best wings for a pizza place. Try the penne ala vodka with bacon instead of sausage! Awesome!! We order every Friday night for delivery. Our kids don't want any other pizza. Great family that owns it too!

Below average pizza. Frozen from a box would be better and the floors and windows are filthy. A blight on Bethel.

Love this place, go all the time. They have the best veggie (primavera) pizza in the area by far. The service is always good especially Kathy.

I have eaten Pizza in Rome, Sicily, Milan & the Isle of Capri & this pizza beats them all. It's overflowing with cheese, a thin crust & just overall yumminess! You must try this pizza & if you only order 1-2 slices ask for it very hot. You won't be disappointed!!

Had a late lunch after book-shopping. Wife had the Aloha pizza, daughter had the spinach pizza (both gf) and I had a veggie calzone. All the food was delicious and quickly served. Do recommend!

This place used to be great. Perfect crust awesome sauce, now it tastes like Big Y Pizza. Waitress didn't even ask how our pizza was and five of them are hovering around soda machine when they should be sweeping very dirty floors. Won't be going back there again.
