Pizza has been a favourite in my family for generations, but pizza by the slice and fast food restaurants are no longer valid once you have been to Famoso’s Pizzeria on Commercial Avenue. Opening those heavy wooden-doors and being hit by the warmth of the wood fire oven and aroma of fresh baked dough is just the beginning of a quite pleasurable experience. When I enter, I am greeted by friendly faces at the door and am-seated at either the rustic bar stools or the cozy-booths. A dim, fiery glow-highlights a vibrant artisan pizza which is-accompanied by flavourful soup—my personal favourite. The first bite is piping hot, but very worth it, for the flavour packs a punch. The soothing tomato bisque, topped with a fluffy feta cheese, is well-balanced out by the crispy crunch of hand-tossed dough on my favourite pizza. The margarita pizzetta is a popular choice amongst most due to the perfect portion sizing-and the classic house sauce. The cozy duo provides-many memories and a homey environment in the rainy Vancouver weather. The Abruzzo pizza-hits home as a family favorite; it’s similar to something you would find at a fast food restaurant but taken up a notch with its secret recipe cream sauce. The room is filled with sounds of laughter and the clanking of greasy-empty plates being licked clean by satisfied-customers. Not only do I leave with a happy tummy, but a happy wallet as well; the prices are reasonable for the amount of food you-get along with the fabulous service. Famoso’s revives many memories of my family and friends is a place that-is close to my heart! A gloomy day of rain becomes much cheerier with the bright spirits that come with some hearty comfort food.
