Famoso Pizzeria hits South Surrey

Happy Sunday great foodie friends,


A wonderful pizzeria has come to South Surrey! Famoso
Who is Famoso?
Famoso Story
In the summer of 2005 co-owner Justin Lussier traveled through Italy and Naples and fell in love with the mouth-watering fire-roasted pizzas served throughout the country.

After eating at Pizzeria Sorbillo in Naples, Justin found a payphone and immediately called his friends and future partners, Jason Allard and Christian Bullock. They soon decided that they needed to bring authentic Neapolitan pizza to Canada.

Training with the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN), organization preserving the standards of authentic Neapolitan pizza, the Famoso boys learned about the unique ingredients and cooking process required.

The rest is history…
Famoso wisely imports it’s flour and tomato sauce from Italy and takes the fine ingredients along with there unique training and brings you a taste of Italy to your back yard!

The restaurants are upscale casual and have a unique style of service. You browse the menu and then write down your choices and go up to hand your order in and pay. Take your seat again and the rest of the service will be brought to you.
The pizzeria has an impressive pizza oven that bakes your authentic Neapolitan pizza in a mere 90 seconds due to its intense heat.
Famoso’s menu is full of great flavours and choices but is also simple as Italian food should be. They know who they are and what they want to bring to their customers so keep it simple.



If you are dining in, you have your choice of a full size pizza or a Pizzetta (a personal size)
Try their fire roasted Tomato bisque or one of their fresh salads…. Each dish brings you flavour wow and will leave you wanting more.
