The first time that I went ot Famoso was when I first moved back to Calgary and was vegan. I went with my best friend and a group of friends of her whom I had never met before. Needless to say, I made the worst first impression in the world since I was the picky vegan ordering a gluten-free crust and pizza with vegan cheese. The cheese was gross and I was not a fan overall.
However, I have been to Famoso quite a few more times since then and have enjoyed it every time.
Most recently I went with friends before heading to Duckys for a night of rousing karaoke. I split the Conforto pizza and a Walnut Salad with a friend, and both were delicious. I will definitely order the pizza again. Another friend of mine ordered the Sophia Loren sandwich, which I have had before and which is delicious. For the table we ordered the Meatballs, Kalamata Olives, and the Flatbread. They were all delicious, but our eyes were most definitely bigger than our stomaches and we all ended up having to wrap up half of our entrees.
I would highly recommend visiting Famoso. The prices are reasonable, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is lovely. Avoid ordering the vegan cheese as it is basically oil and chemicals. If you are vegan or just avoid dairy, you would be better off just ordering a pizza without cheese, or the Sophia Loren without cheese.
