I have been coming here for years, ever since coming to town as a grad student. Faccia Luna has kept their menu to great dishes that are always great. Their pizzas are amazing, and pastas, salads and sandwiches are also very good. You can rely on them for consistent good quality of ingredients, care in food preparation, and good service.... More

I visit State College twice a year, and I always visit his restaurant.

The Genovese, a white pizza with potatoes and pesto and any... More

Unfortunately, they were out of the special dessert that eas listed on the specials... More

Our pizza (wood fired) was really good. The restaurant was busy, very hard to find a parking place, service was really slow. Waitress was not around much, we probably sat there 15-20 minutes without even being acknowledged.

Only really good pizza; mussels mariner a weekend treat; their house balsamic vinegar (Badalucca's) is excellent; good selection of cold beers; bruschetta is consistently good. Low overhead dining area but the food and service are great. Reasonable prices.

The restaurant appears to be really busy, so you might have to wait to be seated and it might take a while for the server to get to your table. Once the server does begin to wait on your table the service is pretty efficient. They offer wood-fired and gas-fired pizzas; we chose the wood-fired versions and were pretty well... More

Well, if you are looking for authentic pizza in state college, Faccia Luna comes closest to anything remotely Italian. They have a bar and TV for sports fans as well.

We love walking to Facia Luna for their great pizza. It's the best pizza! I love the portabella mushroom appetizer, the herb pasta with mushroom sauce and the house salad with creamy peppercorn dressing, etc....everything is fab!
