Great Pizza

Faccia Luna has great wood fired pizza. We usually order it to go because parking is limited. I'm sure we would go more often if it wasn't a hassle to park here!

Very reasonable lunch specials for penny pinchers. Especially angel hair with meatballs if you are hungry.

We stopped by Faccia Luna for lunch on a Friday. It was not the day prior to a home PSU game, so the place was not overly busy. First, the service was poor at best. One of us at the table had ordered coffee. We had to ask for cream with the first cup along with the two refills and... More

We got in right before the Friday night rush on a game weekend, around 4 pm. Good beer selection on tap, service slowed a bit after we placed our order. Our waitress said the chef left?? Anyway, the pizza was very good and our pasta dishes were excellent! Would definitely stop back on our next visit to Penn St.

I went on a Friday night when they offer fresh seafood. The mussels appetizer was tasty enough but there were only 12 microscopic mussels in the bowl.After eating them, I asked for some wet ones to wipe my fingers. The restaurant doesn't offer any. The wait staff did not clear the table between courses, forcing us to help the food... More

I met a friend here for lunch recently. We each ordered their specialty pasta w/ a pesto sauce. The pasta was very fresh, and the sauce was tasty. I also ordered a pizza to go. This too was very tasty. We enjoyed eating outside in their screened area, as it was a bit brighter (inside was on the dark side).... More

This is the second time we ate here and it was just as YUMMY as the first. Service was good. Restaurant atmosphere is casual and welcoming. We had brick oven pizzas both times and they were fantastic. The specials of crab cake and scallops were very fresh and a home run. Linguni with white clam sauce amazing! Overall it was... More

I used to eat here often with my circle of friends when I was a student at University Park. Just recently, I ended up eating there again on a visit to State College with my wife and her family. Everything was just as I remembered it. The place was very clean, good service, and the food was very good. We... More
