Great Italian food, especially on weekends when they have more fish and seafood specials. It is frequented by couples, families, friends, business and friend lunches and dinners. Their own olive oil is spectacular. I have learned to ask for more garlic. It is sometimes too busy or noisy. Dinner in the bar has also been great when I was solo... More

I had an artichoke & fresh tomato pizza that was actually wonderful; my two companions were satisfied but less than totally thrilled with their fish and ravioli dishes. The drinks were uniformly wonderful. We had a great time, because we were able to eat in one of their two outdoor areas where the temperature was delightful and conversation was a... More

We had a group of 9 and when we walked into the building it was awfully loud so we were thrilled to be seated on their outdoor deck, where it was quieter and nice and cool. The food quality and quantity pleasantly surprised the whole group as they have everything from tasty pizzas to awesome seafood/pasta dishes.

We enjoy the pizza here, but we come for the weekend seafood. They bring it in from DC on Friday and Saturday, and sometimes we can still get it on Sunday. They do a great job with the salmon, and my husband is never disappointed when there are crab cakes. The kids are happy with the gas oven pizza, but... More

Loved the pizzas here. Establishment just started serving alcohol a week before we got there (in July 2014). Try the pesto potato pizza.

This is my go-to place when I'm craving a really good Italian meal or wood fired pizza. I've gone there many times for many reasons and while the wait can be longer on weekends or during psu events it is always worth the wait. The chicken parm is delicious and they have one really good salad with Italian meats in... More

This is a pizzeria/restaurant. We went here based on a recommendation of a local who said it was her favorite place. I would probably go back and give it another try but it wasn't as great as the person made it sound. There were two of us and we each had angel hair pasta; one was with marina sauce and... More

Went there during a golf trip to State College. Great pizza, appetizers, and the service was excellent. A definite keeper...

Faccia Luna is a diamond in the rough in State college. Their wood fired pizzas are amazing! This is not a college pizza joint. Expect to pay premium prices for premium pizzas. I highly recommend the chicken pesto pizza!

We recently had dinner at Faccia Luna, based on the recommendation of a local who we met in Penn State's New Student Orientation program. The location is very convenient, just a few minutes away from the University Park campus. I was a little dubious when we arrived -- it looked like a very basic "pizza joint" and was located adjacent... More
