I managed to come here twice in one week; once with Team Alcoholics and once with Team Tastic. The meatball appetizer was a tasty combination of cheese and beef and easy to share with others. Moving onto the pizzas, the one I fondly recall is the Catalan (with roasted apple, pine nuts, spinach, and peppers). I felt the Catalan was the most interesting item on the summer menu and ordered it on both my visits. The dessert was a tiramisu (picture on blog) which came in a cute little jar and it was fantastic. Similar to what other good Italian places (Federico, Via Tevere) serve, the lady fingers were fluffy and mixed in very well.

II GIve up. This is the 4th time I have tried to correct your mistake! The first three times I contacted you and explained that you had this restaurant in the WRONG CITY (although I have to admit that you did have it in the right country...). Finally, after over 6 months, you have moved it to the right city, BUT now you have at the WRONG address. WOW!

if YELP and UrbanSpoon and the YELLOW PAGES can get it right, why can't you? Try Google maps!

This is what you call a rave review.

Today we had an excellent experience at Famoso Pizzeria. We had exceptional service - Our server offered our kids dough to play with while we waited -- and the atmosphere was family friendly in general. As for the food? Fabulous pizza with quality fresh ingredients. We ordered The Tomato Bisque (Outstanding), and the Proscuitto Wrapped Moza Balls as 'appies' and then the the QUATTRO FORMAGGI, the CAVOLETTI, and MARGHERITA pizzas. All exceeded expectations. BONUS - The kids got free Gelato from the large Gelato bar!! WOW! We will be returning with my family frequently.
