For better take-outs, there are also the new world pizzas that are formulated to handle delivery distance better—guests will find these 16” pizzas extra thick, extra big with extra toppings!

Dave Housman, who will helm this location, is a seasoned Famoso maven who also owns the Famoso Magrath location along 23rd Ave NW. With his experience and knowledge of running a successful pizzeria, Dave describes the new location as “a stylish, casual pizzeria restaurant that embodies the look of old-school Italian with a modern flair,” adding that “it’s a perfect evolution of the Famoso brand and a great place for sharing with family and friends.”
