Faccia Luna is for Lovers
We’re far enough into the semester now that you’ve probably had a chance to size up your classes, and maybe you’ve noticed a girl or two that you might want to take out.
You want somewhere classy but not intimidating, fun but not tacky, and affordable but not cheap.
Faccia Luna is the place for you. Located on South Atherton, this Italian restaurant is a little-known treasure started by two Alpha Sigma Phi brothers from Penn State, Bill McFadden and Joe Corey.
Corey dished to Onward State about some of the stories he’s heard from customers throughout the years. A woman showing wedding pictures, a couple celebrating their one year anniversary, a group passing around honeymoon pictures; all had their first dates at Faccia Luna.
“It’s respectable, shows a little forethought, the food is good and reasonably priced,” Corey said. “Everybody looks good at Faccia Luna.”
One woman’s husband even had their wedding band engraved, “From Faccia Luna to Eternity”. How’s that for success?
Yet even if you’re not looking for love, Faccia Luna is worth it for the food alone. Self-taught in the art of pizza making, McFadden has perfected his signature wood-grilled pizza, and your taste buds will be able to vouch.
Places like Canyon may be a good fix at 2 a.m., but for an actual meal, Faccia Luna is where it’s at. So break out your inner Romeo and get going!
