“love the brunch menu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stumbled upon Facci after visiting the jeweler. Love their brunch menu. Try their Signature Omelet. It was extremely quiet for a Saturday morning...but service was outstanding! We will be coming back when we can. I think we found our go-to restaurant for celebrating and bringing friends/family.

“Facci restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Casual dining. Mostly italian cuisine. Wood burning pizza, pastas, and salads. Went during the Christmas season and restaurant was busy with many folks having office luncheons. Service was good in spite of hustle and bustle. Food tasty but can be a little pricey.

“Crowded, hot and noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Having been to the Fulton location, I figured the food would be good, which it is. The decor is stylish. Went on a week night just before 6:00 and the place was already packed and with people waiting to be seated. Our group all enjoyed their entrees, pollo parmigiana, pollo Marsala, shrimp scampi. The parmigiana was large enough for two servings. Marsala sauce was delicious and I really enjoyed the variety of mushrooms with the entree. The Caesar salad was large but did not seem to have been dressed, a disappointment for the charge. The noise level made it difficult to converse, and between the pizza oven and the contemporary fireplace in the bar area we were all uncomfortable and had no desire to linger for dessert or after-dinner drinks, which was unfortunate. Our server was pleasant and efficient, considering how busy it was. Overall, the food is above average, but the other factors make me reluctant to return to dine there. Maybe I will just get takeout.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

The restaurant is quite stylish, although noisy (on a Friday night with a full crowd). They do not accept reservations, so I would go on a weeknight and perhaps fairly early to avoid the crowd.
Our group had the calamari appetizer, which was OK, but not great. We ordered:
-- two pizzas,
--,two eggplant meals (the stuffed eggplant was nominally an "appetizer" but it really was close to a meal size portion),
-- and a salad primavera.
The eggplant meals were very good; the marinara sauce was excellent. The pizzas were also tasty, but for some reason Facci's serves them on sort of a platter (marble or ceramic). As a result, the bottom of the pizza was a bit soggy, which defeated the whole purpose of the thin crust and the brick over; I cannot fathom why they serve pizza this way. We also had a couple of desserts, which were good (the bomba was great, but should be shared). Our group ordered a couple glasses of wine and I had a beer (the beer was surprisingly inexpensive (4$). Service was top-notch
So the meal was good, except for the somewhat soggy pizza crust. The prices were reasonable also. I would have rated them 3.5 stars but rounded up because the food was tasty.
