While Famoso has grown into a popular chain of pizzerias with several locations throughout Edmonton, the original location of this Neapolitan pizzeria continues to dole out some of the best pizzas in town. The story of Famoso begins in Italy where co-owner Justin Lussier first fell in love with traditional Neapolitan pizza. With guidance from the Associazione Verace Pizza Nepoletana (VPN), Famoso was born. Hand-tossed dough, prepared using Italian flour, topped with fresh ingredients and cooked in a traditional bell-oven, Famoso's pizzas are authentic and packed with flavor. The menu offers both traditional and more innovative variations of the classic Neapolitan pizza, served fresh and at a delightfully quick pace. The Jasper Avenue pizzeria is where Famoso's foray into the Canadian culinary scene first began and remains a popular place to dine.

Get away from the crowds of Whyte Avenue and take a short walk through residential streets in the historic Garneau district to arrive at Leva. This cafe serves espresso-based coffees and inspired light meals in a spare, airy room with an abundance of windows. Stop by for an early coffee and scone and return in the afternoon for homemade gelato on the sidewalk patio. The chef-owner of Leva clearly loves her work, and she can usually be seen at a side table going over paperwork or refilling the cream jar while chatting with longtime customers. Catering is available, as is rental of the whole cafe should the need arise. Their delectable pizzas cannot be missed out on either!
The beginnings of this popular Italian eatery can be traced back to the 1970s, when the Mazzotta family first set up their humble little pizzeria. Serving authentic Italian pizza, hand-tossed and topped with fresh ingredients, the pizzeria soon made a name for itself as one of Edmonton's best pizza joints. Although the original pizzeria closed its doors many years ago, the family's culinary ambitions once more took flight with the opening of the Ragazzi Bistro in 2001. While the bistro offers a delicious selection of classic Italian pastas, grilled mains and appetizers, it is best known for its pizza. Authentic and innovative, Ragazzi's pizzas are as worthy of fame today as they were in the 1970s. As is the Italian tradition, the Ragazzi Bistro celebrates good food, family and the simple pleasure of dining out in the company of friends.
