Top place for wood fired pizza

It's a college town, so there is no shortage of places to get pizza, you can go for price, as in tastes like cardboard but costs a couple bucks, or you can go to faccia luna where not only do you see it go into the oven but you can also make up just about any combo imaginable on your... read more

We went to dinner with some friends and the food was delicious. We ordered two of their specialty pizzas and small house salads. The pepper parmesan dressing is great and the salads are a nice size! What we keep going back for is the pizza, it doesn't matter which you decide on, the pizza is delicious. The only down side... More

The wood fired pizza I always order at Faccia Luna is a hot, salavating treat. This is by far the best Pizza I have ever sunk my teeth into and you can see the wait staff always trying their best! Make sure you come here instead of Luna 2 even with the wait l, because the original stuff here should... More

We love Italian food so we tend to be a little critical, but really there was nothing special about the pasta dishes we sampled at Faccia Luna. The pizza was very good, as were the salads, and the service was great. I would recommend eating here...just go when you're in the mood for pizza! One other note...the stairway and hallway... More

I usually love this place. Their Parmesan peppercorn salad dressing is to die for. Wood fired pizzas are yummy. However, when I placed my "to go" order, I wasn't happy. Every single piece of lettuce in the Luna Salad was brown or slimy or both. (see attached photo) The lettuce is the cheapest part of a salad so why not... More

Whether you are looking for pizza, sandwiches, dinners or salads this is the place to go. The pizza is cooked in a brick oven. They offer a wide variety on the menu. You can sit inside or outside. The place does get packed so I would go early is you want to get a table. I've never have had a... More

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!
