Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria (Commercial Drive)

Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Walked in on an unrushed sunny Wednesday afternoon. My first time, so maybe I shouldn't have ordered a new seasonal special, but too late now. With that in mind, this review is mostly about one particular pizza, so don't judge the entire menu by it, especially the less adventurous items.

Bombay Cauliflower ($17.65) mango chutney, fior-di-latte, marinated curry cauliflower, diced mango, red onion, jalapeno, mint yogurt, cilantro, lime wedge.
  • Rated "spicy", but except for when I plucked off a jalapeno slice and put that in my mouth on its own, I didn't find this spicy at all.
  • Dripping wet with sauce, from mango and/or chutney. Way too wet.
  • Tasted like mango-flavoured syrup. That dominated everything, sadly.
  • Other than a composition which wasted all the ingredients except mango chutney, the pizza crust seemed really good and not seared with large black burnt patches or bubbles at the bottom either, which can sometimes happen with Neapolitan pizza.
  • Price feels pretty steep for 12" but there are quite a few ingredients there. For one person it'd be okay but might not be filling for two persons.
Service was pleasant, attentive, and not pushy about selling beverages or upselling anything.

Dietary substitutions are available:
  • Free to change cheese to vegan Daiya cheese
  • Extra charge to change crust to gluten-free crust. +$2 for 7" pizza, +$3 for 12" pizza
