Favoloso Cafe & Pizzeria

Randomly heard about Favoloso so we decided to try them out. They’re located in between Dang Good and Dutch Bakery.




Sign outside.



We’ve been twice now and happy to see they’ve spruced up the place. Staff was friendly and dropped a jug of water for our table. The menu is short and sweet; pasta, pizza, lasagna, salad & platters and dessert.

Trip #1
We dropped in on a Tuesday (around 12:30pm) and it wasn’t busy.

Amatriciana penne ($16.99)
DSC05751A simple tomato sauce, bacon and topped with Parmesan cheese. The sauce was fantastic!


A hint of sweetness but overall, well balanced. This one was the winner of the two.

Pesto penne ($14.99)
DSC05753I went with the pesto which was topped with Parmesan cheese. Tasty but a touch salty.


The side of pizza bread was light and chewy.


Trip #2
We dropped in on a Monday evening (around 5:30pm) and the place filled up in a hurry.

Speck ($17.99)
DSC08789Tomato sauce, mozzarella, speck and mushrooms. We liked the pizza more than the pasta. Dough was thin, slightly crispy and with a good bite. Liked how it wasn’t soggy in the middle.

Fresh tagliatelle ($15.99)
DSC08791Homemade meat sauce, Parmesan cheese and pizza bread.



Pasta was too soft and had no bite/wasn’t al dente. L wanted more meat sauce too. Decent Italian mom and pop shop but slightly on the pricier side.
