Friday night fish

They do serve excellent fresh fish and apparently get a shipment on Fridays. I especially enjoy their Salmon.

Brick oven pizza, nicely done and quite tasty. Nice size salad. Good tasting cheesesteak. Phenomenal looking Italian sub. And GOOD warm bread. Decor and comfort very nice. The place was packed. The management should have had more staff on hand. Our server was a bit frazzled as it was quite busy. And so we saw tables come and go as... More

The service was fast and the Margarita Pizza was great! My husband and I were looking for a quick meal that wasn't fast food. We found exactly that at Faccia Luna. He had the cheese steak sandwich and a piece of pizza. We enjoyed watching the Master's Tournament as well! I highly recommend Faccia Luna to everyone!

I have eaten at Faccia Luna many times. It is the place to go for wood-fired pizza that you cannot find anywhere else. I live in Baltimore, MD and there is nothing like it around the Baltimore Metropolitan area.

I cannot imagine how anyone would want an Italian meal anywhere else in town - from the bruschetta to the salad with Badaluca's Balsamic vinegar to the best ever pepperoni pizza to the Mussels Mariner and on and on. Setting is not elegant but the food is always good.

I ate here at the recommendation of several Penn State alumni. They RAVED about the place, so I had high expectations. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. The food was good - not the best I've ever had, but good, quality ingredients and well-made. The service, however, was terrible! I was basically told I HAD to sit at the bar... More

Based upon strong recommendations, I tried this local establishment rather than one of the chains like Olive Garden, for some well prepared pasta dishes. The quality of Olive Garden would have probably been better. To be fair, it looks as if this place is set up for pizza rather than dinner entrees, with a wood fired oven. Portion size was... More

In the never ending quest for an authentic Neapolitan style pizza, with a thin crisp base, and long tasty toppings, not obliterated by cheap cheese, we tried Faccia Luna. Verdict: Only passable. The search goes on....

If you want someplace nicer that the usual "italian" restaurant, this is a good choice. Has a wood fired pizza oven that is really cool. NIce menu selection - basic to more upscale. They have the best Vodka sauce I have ever eaten. Certain nights are "seafood" nights and the usually have killer scallops. Good service. Reasonable price.

Chicken parm with vodka sauce is my fave...fish specials on weekends are delicious and try the house dijon dressing...so good!
