Great Pizzas

Nice pizzeria close to the airport and hotels. The restaurant is big, 3 areas to dine from. All have views of Kigali. We ate there for lunch on the 21st June. We had salads and pizzas all were tasty. The presentations were pleasing to the eye. As for dessert we had a chocolate mousse and a... read more

If this place didn't have a great terrace and views over Kigali, it probably would have died ages ago. It's probably the closest you'll get to an airport or motorway restaurant in a town: the food is perfectly OK but the attitude of the staff - and particularly the management - is that customers are simply passing traffic. They can't... More

Beautiful place and great menu list, the most complete one in kigali wines included. Charming atmosphere for families too and good choice of tables with a beautiful view on the city. Wide choice of pizzas, the best of kigali, fish and beef. Owner Dionigi is welcoming you as a friend. Highly recommended.

Come here often for good Italian food and 4g network thrown in for free. Love the eggplant parmigian and the Greek salad. Wine is reasonable and the beers are cold. Family friendly. Friendly cats roaming around begging for handouts.

Really good pizzas at a good price in Kigali. Good views out over some of the hills and valleys. Staff are good, drinks a decent price and the atmosphere is relaxed and calm.

I have eaten at Sol e Luna several times while staying in Kigali and the food and service have always been excellent. I absolutely love their outdoor patio. It's covered with vines and wild flowers, and has an air of enchantment about it.

Always on my list when in Kigali. Very good thin crust pizzas and solid wine list. Recommend the vegetarian pizzas in particular: Parmigiana and Gargano are both excellent. Have had less success with other main courses so recommend sticking with pizzas and pastas. Great views and good for groups. Finish with espresso and the chocolate mousse.

Really wonderful atmosphere and an amazing view, great pizzas, friendly staff, although service can get very slow, even when there aren't a lot of customers. On Monday nights, there's a weekly quiz where a lot of expats/tourists go to. It starts at 20pm, make sure to get there early if you want your food to be served on time.
