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.

Good mixed crowd - Looked like professors, residents and college students. Good sign. We three had the pizza. A little dry and a bit over cooked; we had to wait a bit long for it... Not bad, but not the best.

I stopped by Faccia Luna for lunch based on reviews that i read online, raving about the 'best pizza'. I ordered a pizza to go & a ceasar salad for dine in. The service was prompt & helpful. The salad was crisp & a nice portion size. The pizza was good, but I would not rate it as a best... More

nothing bad per say , but certainly nothing to write ( positively ) home about. Hostess nor server particularly friendly or informative. No drink refill offered for empty soda glass. My food coulda come out hotter, esp. as wasn't busy. No wifi/no drink specials/ and very limited menu except for weekends ( when bring up fresh seafood from DC area).... More

I was in town for a conference and ate here for a dinner break. My pizza was one of the best I have tasted! The staff was very friendly, our waitress was also friendly and attentive, and we didn't wait long for our food! Great atmosphere, awesome staff, and good food....what else more could you want?

Great place for wood-fired pizza, the pizza margherita is very good. The restaurant itself is a bit small considering the amount of business they get on a weekend night, but a great option for takeout. They also have beer available for takeout purchase.

Steak salad is the best. Pizza is delicious. Never disappointed and is one of our favorite restaurants when we come to Penn State.

This pizzeria has fresh, great tasting ingredients that add up to great tasting food. Special of the day was Bacon and Onion Pizza with a cup of wedding soup to which we added the Bruschetta with fresh mozzarella appetizer. Service was friendly and attentive.
