Famoso Pizzeria Opens in Ricky’s All Day Grill Location in Vernon, B.C.

Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar has come to Vernon, B.C., with a new location that opens today, September 6th, 2023, at 4795 34th Street, Vernon, B.C. The newest Famoso is a dual-branded concept with the existing Ricky’s All Day Grill, where guests can enjoy all their Ricky’s favourites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with the addition of a Famoso Pizzeria providing even more delicious dining options for the residents of the Vernon area.

The first Famoso opened in Edmonton in 2007 and is known for their authentic Neapolitan pizza, which has regularly won awards as a guest favourite. Famoso is passionate about authentic Italian pizza, using imported Italian bell ovens, fresh, premium ingredients, and traditional culinary techniques in pizza making that have gone unchanged for generations. At Famoso, watching your authentic Neapolitan pizza being hand-tossed by the pizzaiolos in an open-style kitchen is almost as enjoyable as eating it.

Plus, dining options are available to guests yearning for even more of a true Italian flavour. The menu is inspired by family recipes and includes favourites like rigatoni bolognese and fettucine Alfredo pasta; Italian-style sandwiches, great signature salads; a wide selection of craft beers on tap, and of course, Italian-inspired desserts… traditional house-made tiramisu, cheesecake, and artisan gelato. With a menu that’s great for dates, friends, family dining, and delivery, Famoso is the perfect complement to the existing Ricky’s restaurant.

Ricky’s has been famous for breakfasts since 1962, with menu favourites like Egg Bennies and their signature Brekkie-Bowls. Ricky’s also has lunch and dinner options like fresh, never frozen Alberta beef burgers and mouth-watering sandwiches. And Ricky’s is bringing you the best of home cooking with comfort classics like our homestyle Turkey Dinner, Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs, and Traditional Lasagna.

Raymond Ho, VP of marketing for FDF Brandz, is excited to add Famoso to their Ricky’s Vernon, B.C. location. “With the addition of Famoso, we’ve got even more dining options available to our patrons yearning for a true Italian flavour,” adding that “the stylish, casual pizzeria embodies the look of old-school Italy with a modern flair and is a perfect place for sharing with family and friends.”

With fast express takeout, online ordering, and delivery services, guests can enjoy their favourite Ricky’s breakfast or an authentic Famoso Neapolitan pizza, all in the comfort of their own homes.
