  1. Wonder if it has any relationship to Faccia Luna in Clarendon?

    1. Pazza Luna Trattoria Italiana is not affliliated with Faccia Luna. One of the owners is Riccardo Bosio of Sotto Sopra Restaurant ( He brought the chef to the US to work at Sotto Sopra and then he moved on to Cafe Troia. The chef is Gianfranco Fracassetti. The food is Italian not American Italian. The first floor has been remodeled and they will be remodeling the 2nd floor soon.

      1. They certainly have a difficult-to-use website. Kind of like Sotto Sopra's website, now that I think about it.

        1. There's a menu hidden in there. I think I found it by hovering over one of the unlabelled stars. The menu is displayed in an annoying Flash control that doesn't respond to scroll wheels or Page Up/Down keys, requiring instead mouse clicks on a thinly drawn scroll bar.

          Quite an annoying website.

          1. It says, "The evening Stars will be your Guide", the first star is the menu, I think the 2nd is History, etc.
            I didn't have an issue with it.
