Orlando >Fama's Italian Restaurant and Pizzareia
Very Disappointing !! Avoid.
I had high hopes after reading some of the reviews. Pizza was truly some of the worst I have ever eaten. I am not exaggerating when I say that Domino's Brooklyn pizza is better. ( I am an Italian American from Brooklyn)
The Owner / manager is rude and not accommodating at all. Avoid this poor quality, over priced, tourist trap !!!!
BEST PIZZA I'VE HAD IN ORLANDO!!!. The pizza is awesome everytime! I'm going to assume that last reviewer went to a different resteraunt. Having said that, the reason I'm writing is because I recently moved out of their area and have been looking for a pizza joint that is just as good. So far nothing compares to Famas. Every pie that I have ordered from them has been delicious, fresh and well priced. Everytime I walked in to get my pizza I was greeted by the nice man who kinda reminded me of my grandfather from the "old country"....even though I'm Irish. =) AWESOME JOB GUYS.
Where pizza comes to die...
After reading the other reviews posted I was excited about getting some take out at this pizza joint.
I am sorry to report that this is some of the worst pizza I have ever had. I lived in NY for approx. 2 years and cannot believe that this place was compared to true NY style pies. I paid $13.00 for a small pizza with 2 toppings. 1 of them only being garlic. I was very disenchanted by the use minced(out of a jar) garlic & meat toppings that were super processed(looked like rabbit droppings), probably also out of a jar/can. Nothing fresh about it. I have had better pizza out of the freezer from the supermarket. I love pizza & am not hard to please, but sorry to say this was just plain awful!! The crust was mediocre at best. Staff wasn't very charming either. No greeting, smile, or even acknowledgement of any sort, even though I used my usual enthusiastic hello. Just a dead quiet transaction.
HANDS DOWN 100% NEW YORK PIZZA. I am a Brooklynite, who now lives in Atlanta. My boyfriend and I were vacationing in Orlando and wanted some good pizza. Famas is in the shopping center with Publix. Its a very small place run by a little short "cute old" Italian man. He kinda looks like he belongs in an old Italian film. Very nice guy who has a thick accent. And will tell you how the best pizza is no longer in New York but in Chicago. He makes his own dough daily he says. It takes him about 10 minutes to make a medium pie. When we got the pizza and opened the box a bright heavenly light emitted from the inside. It was NEW YORK PIZZA IN ORLANDO FLORIDA!!!! I have lived in Atlanta for 6 years and have been around all of Atlanta in search of true "New York Pizza." I've been to Zagat rated, City rated, customer favorites. But this little pizza place, where the pizza was made by that little man is AMAZING! PLEASE GO AND SUPPORT THIS GUY. HE IS NICE AND THE PIZZA IS GREAT.
Great Pizza, and dinners in their dining room. I occasionally have dinner at this little restaurant in the Williamsburg Shopping Center, on the corner of Central Florida Parkway and Gateway. Their pasta dishes are great as are their salads and pizzas. This is a family run business with Frank, a German trained Italian chef born in Italy, as the Chef de Cuisine and his wife and son and daughter-in-law working the kitchen and the customers. I wish they would add gyros and maybe a couple of greek items to their menu, as well as some fish dishes. Famas prices are very reasonable and competitive with local restaurants.
