Canadian franchise Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria opened its second Calgary location in McKenzie Towne on Wednesday evening. The casual Italian eatery is noted for its Neapolitan style handmade pizzas, which use ingredients imported from Italy such as Campania tomatoes and fior-di-latte mozzarella. Pizzas can be personalized with extra toppings and an affordable wine menu makes the experience all the more inviting. Food is ordered at the front counter, but served tableside making for a casual dining experience.
The eatery also carries locally made Fiasco gelato. The gelato-float makes for a refreshing summer treat and comes in flavours such as mango-pineapple and pistachio-lime. On Wednesdays, the McKenzie Towne location offers free wine tastings from 6 PM – 8:30 PM. – Sarah Sussman
