Faccia Luna is a Must

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.

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
