This is the most consistently good by-the-slice pizza place I've eaten at in NYC proper. I've eaten here 100+ times and even on Sunday evening they don't have those dried up rubber Frankenpizzas you see at some other places.
Funny after going here for so long I had never tried anything else but the pizza. About a month ago my girlfriend ordered a spinach calzone ($4.95) and we split it. Now if you live in NYC you know you can pay $14 for a calzone at a lot of place, so already at under $5 Famous Famiglia is ahead of the game.
It was so good we could have fallen out of our chairs.
FF Calzone Secret (observational speculation): The calzone dough is folded to its recognizable shape and partially baked. So, when you order they cut it open, stuff it with mozzerella, ricotta, and in our case spinach, then bake that sucker for a little bit until it's done and delicous.
I can't really explain just how good it is. The shell alone was like eating a great loaf of freshly baked bread. You'll just have to try it yourself.
