Faccia Luna is an urban, upscale pizzeria different from those offered by the chains and the typical mom-and-pop corner shops. Our restaurants are urban trattorias specializing in wood-fired pizzas (gas-fired in Arlington), fresh pasta, salads, sandwiches, and appetizers. Our chefs hail from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. Faccia Luna also boasts an excellent Italian estate-bottled wine list and a wide variety of American microbrews.
Faccia Luna specializes in quality, and the operating principle of the company is that "you can always upgrade." Faccia Luna has never been accused of compromising its commitment to quality.
The commitment to quality, coupled with an upscale, urban design has made Faccia Luna a natural fit in neighborhood settings. The visual warmth and comfort is accomplished by an open kitchen, as well as the use of earthy Tuscan colors, cherry and maple woodwork and 20's and 30's-era black-and-white photographs.
The setting, although casual, has an air of understated sophistication. As a result, Faccia Luna is a "first date" destination and a sentimental favorite. A number of its customers (at least five that we know of) who had their first date at Faccia Luna have returned to the restaurant to pop the question. Two have had their wedding receptions at Faccia Luna. It truly is a neighborhood hangout. Faccia Luna also supports its neighborhood schools, civic associations and other community groups.
We look forward to meeting you!
