Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria.Wednesday, January 09, 2013
recently had a chance to visit the famous west-coat pizza chain, Famoso
Neapolitan Pizzeria. I've heard about this place for a while now
and luckily this past June two locations opened up in Toronto.
One location is at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre and the other is
located in the Annex.
My sister's boyfriend ordered the regular size of the Capricciosa which has Italian ham, roasted mushrooms, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and extra virgin olive oil. He didn't really give me an in-depth review of the pizza but instead nodded his head and scarfed the whole thing down in 5 minutes. I assume it was delicious!
For dessert we ordered a tiramisu to share but unfortunately it was still quite frozen in the centre. Apparently it is imported from Italy and they didn't have enough time to defrost a new batch and so the owner actually told us that if its too frozen inside to just let him know. We ended up taking a bite and realizing that it really was too frozen to eat and so the owner kindly offered us any other dessert on the menu free of charge. We went for the Dolce & Banana which is oven-roasted bananas coated in caramelized brown sugar, crushed pecans, caramel sauce and vanilla bean gelato. I cant even describe how incredibly delicious it was. The brown sugar was hardened on the bananas like a crème brulee crust which was a big WIN in my books and the gelato balanced out the sweetness of the banana-caramel-sugar mixture quite nicely. There are some other impressive desserts on the menu like a nutella pizza and very unique flavors of authentic Italian gelato.
