25 minuttes waiting to place order. Then more than 1 hours waiting for the food. Most of us had finished eating before the others got their food. No service. Food acceptable.

The pizza was great, and we were there on quiz night. I really enjoyed getting to play a round of trivia, eat some delicious pizza, and enjoy the lovely atmosphere. The food also came really quickly, which was a nice surprise! The location is central, and the space is beautiful with large outdoor, covered patios. Great stop!

We took a work party of 12 for evening dinner and I am always nervous about the quality of the food we will receive when taking a large party anywhere. I had nothing to worry about as the food was terrific. I wouldn't say the food came quickly but it didnt matter as the ambiance of the restaurant was lovely... More

Delicious meals - that is all to be said. Perfect view and a friendly and quick service-team. Will join again on my next visit to Kigali.

I've never seen so many pizza permutations on one menu -- and so many that sound so good -- but alas, my expectations were unmet. The crust looks good but tastes more like (semi-stale) pita than the brick-oven-fired thin crust that it tries to be, the sauce is so-so, and the toppings are hit and miss -- great roasted veggies...

Very decent place for pizzas, even with Rwandan cheese in the mix. Great atmosphere, can't fault the food. What more can you ask for - except speedier service? Hey guys, so easy to remedy that.

Sol e Luna is a bit far from the main city centre, but it offers a wonderful view of the city at night. Their pizzas (they offer over 30 styles) are oven-baked flatbreads. They also have a long list of pasta and American dishes. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Wifi is also free and reliable.

I am a pizza snob and love the Naples style. Who would have ever thought that such great pizza would be in Rwanda! I had tastes of the 5 pizzas (personal sized for very reasonable price) and each pizza was fresh, good sauce, and great toppings. We had a salad and some garlic bread to share before the pizza -...

Arguably the best pizza in Rwanda, hands down the best pizza in Kigali. Good selection of gourmet toppings (gorgonzola, brie, prosciutto, anchovies, pine nuts, etc.) that aren't offered at most places. Really good service for Rwanda. Wait staff actually visit you frequently and offer to get another drink or box up your leftovers. They're even around at the end of... More
