After going to church with my friend Kristine, we found ourselves looking for a place to have dinner around Regina. The city looked abandoned on a Sunday night. I can imagine everyone sitting on a comfortable couch watching a movie or probably having a "Netflix and chill" night.
Then we saw the light. The light that was Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria!
Located at 1881 Scarth Street, this two-month old pizzeria is very close to major offices in downtown Regina. Office people who don't want to bring packed lunch will find this restaurant very convenient.
Food is here! Let's eat!
Say HELLO to my friend Kristine!
We were in the middle of enjoying our food when I realized that I have not taken photos of ourselves. Not that its important but because its part of the experience. Such a good excuse to get a selfie. Right?
I got the Margherita and added some anchovies while Kristine got Verde minus the goat cheese. I too am not a big fan of goat cheese.
Gelato is love and I should've ordered a pint actually. I was not in the mood of sharing it so I kind of finished it before Kristine could even take a glimpse of it. The story of a gelato's life. Gone in seconds.

The VitoriVita Standard
5 - Excellent
4 - Very good
3 - Good
2 - Needs Improvement / Do Something About It
1 - You need to reconsider if you're in the right business!
0 - You're in deep shhhhhh! So I will just SHHHHH!
Taste: 4 / 5 or Very Good
It tasted really good I wanted to finish everything right away. Good thing Kristine reminded me that its dinner and there was now way we could burn all the calories.
I also like that its freshly made. You can actually see your pizza guy tossing the dough on midair.
The Nutella gelato was just heavenly. My love affair with Nutella has crossed over to this serving of gelato.
Plating: 4 / 5 or Very Good
There was no other way you could plate pizza unless you order a slice. The plating does not concern me at all for this kind of food. But what I really liked most was the design of their pizza boxes - classic monochrome. I would want to show it around town.
Interior Design: 5 / 5 Excellent
Oh yes! The place is so cozy for a good conversation with friends. I like the high ceiling and the lighting was just perfect! All the little things inside the restaurant complimented to the look of the whole place.
The place is so Instagram-worthy!
Service: 5 / 5 Excellent
Allona, our server, was so sweet. She wrote a small thank you note with a smiley at the back of the receipt. Not to mention that the orange socks she was wearing translate to fun. She was also very attentive to our needs. I think we got so lucky because Sundays are quite slow and there were a few people in the restaurant that night. I've seen how bustling it was on a Friday and Saturday night. So if you're dining there with 4 or more of your friends, you can call them for reservations on this number (306) 789 - 0011 and probably save yourself from the long wait list.
Price: 4 / 5 or Very Good
I personally think that the price was right. Because I believe that freshness comes with a price and this one was reasonable.
TOTAL SCORE: 4.4 or Very very good!
We were not able to finish the whole pizza so we brought home the slices left on the plate in these cool boxes. I love beautiful boxes.
All photos were taken using an iPhone 6 and I am happy the photos turned out good.
