Good place to go in State College

  • b

My wife and I are heading up to State College this weekend to visit our daughter who is a student at PSU. What do you recommend for something above the typical college-town fare? About the only places I have been so far are the Corner Room and an assortment of burger joints. Thanks!

    1. I also recommend Zolas .. great food with a modern twist. Also, above the Corner Room, is Allen Street Grille. I've never been myself, but I know a lot of adults who go to escape the "typical college-town fare"

      1. Allen Street Grille, Irvings for breakfast or lunch. Nittany lion Inn.

          1. Faccia Luna is great...cute wood burning oven pizza place with good salads and pasta.

            Alto... nice Italian restaurant...short drive to Lemont in a really pretty old victorian house

            Spats...a little bit of everything...they say New Orleans cusine...not your typical college town fare.

              I have never been to Faccia Luna, menu looks great - we'll try it soon! Is it BYO?

                I'm pretty sure they sell booze there.
