Go simple or go awry.

Sol e Luna offers hit-or-miss Italian cuisine with nice patio views. I ordered the spaghetti with avocado, shrimp, and squid ($13 USD). Yes, the dish sounds like it came from the cooking show Chopped. It was an interesting mix of flavors and textures, and the combination worked out. My friend... read more

I ordered a pizza recently specifically because it had olives. Anybody who's spent time in Rwanda knows that good ingredients are very hard to come by, olives being on that list. My pizza was delivered and tasted horribly. Not just the normal horrible at Sol e Luna (50% of the time the crust is under done because they're hurrying) and... More

Yes its the best Pizza in Kigali and nice ambience but on a busy day you may enjoy long waits and lazy staff. Its not authentic - pizzas are taking a slow decline and if you want a private quiet dinner dont go here its packed. If you are craving pizza and headed to musanze the best in Rwanda is... More

One of my favourite dinner spots in Kigali! Delicious Italian-style pizza, reasonable prices and an incredible view to boot. A must every time I am in town.

One of our favorite restaurants. I've found all dishes to be reliably good, if rarely truly exceptional. The menu is huge, but we're rarely told that they're out of individual items (which not infrequently happens at other restaurants). Professionally run. I wouldn't put it in my top three restaurants in Kigali, but it's definitely top 10, and possibly top 5.... More

Moved on from Kigali, but still have fond memories of this place. Amazing views, friendly staff, and the pizza? Oh the pizza. Huge, wood-oven fired, so many to choose from. The buffet is great too, but I'm a pizza girl at heart...

Happy with Italian-style pizza (large selection of good ingredients), pasta (including lasagna), and wine (even by the glass) selection is probably one of the best for mid-range Kigali. Not a bad buffet for lunch during the week, but a bit expensive. Have not yet been disappointed by a la carte options (although some offal seem to have made it to... More
