I was so down and left feeling frustrated, even after I left the restaurant where Collin and I had the horrible dinner. I suggested us to have dessert somewhere to freshen our mouths. We walked along Commercial Drive, but it was almost 9 o’clock and we didn’t see most places open. We ended up going to this Italian restaurant where also serves gelato and other desserts.

Famoso is on the middle of Commercial Drive, serving authentic Neapolitan pizza. As I mentioned in the past, their order system is interesting. Once a server guide you to a seat, decide what to order, remember your table number and go to cashier to place the order.

We ordered from their regular menu.

I tasted affogato for the first time, and I really liked it. It might be little strong to have it at night? But I want to have one myself next time. The Tiramisu was OK. The one side was dry and the other side was moist. It was quite big for myself.

One of my friends sent a text message in one morning, asking if I could go for dinner on that day. I replied I could, although I didn’t know what time I would be released from a meeting. When I was leaving the meeting, I sent a text so that she picked me up.

We were talking and at same time trying to figure out where we went while we were driving. I suggested Commercial Drive, and if not Main Street. When we were on the Drive, we found a restaurant that looked like new. So, we decided to go there.

Famoso in Vancouver

Famoso is on the centre of Commercial Drive, serving authentic Neapolitan pizza. In addition, they have dessert and Gelato. Their system is interesting. Take a seat, decide what to order, remember your table number and go to cashier to place the order. Yes, there is a server who explains their system and menus first.

We ordered from their regular menu.

When I placed the order, the cashier person told me something was free due to Wednesday. As I couldn’t catch what it was and didn’t know what to choose, I told my friend to come over to the cashier. Anyways, I thought it was just topping on the pizza that we ordered, but it looked like Pizzetta. So, here it is.

Pizzettas with Artichokes topping (I believe)

Their pizza oven seemed like being automated by machine. The numbers were shown in front of the oven.

Before we paid, I asked the server if we can come here just for dessert. She implied we can be there whenever with any purpose we like. That’s good, because next time we just want to eat dessert!
