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.

The view is indeed pretty nice and the staff is really friendly and helpful. We went there on a Sunday evening and it was pretty crowded. However, they were fast and polite. The food was really not that good. We had a steak and a calzone. The steak was of minor quality and cooked too long, fries were old and... More

Wonderful thin-crust brick oven pizza, outdoor seating, good cheese. They didn't have any chillie flakes which was a slight disappointment, but they did bring out this VERY hot chilli paste which doesn't look so red, so seems deceiving, but it is HOT HOT HOOOT! Use sparingly :)

The waiter mixed my order and brought me back something that tasted horrible and smelled bad. I paid and left without an appology.

They have draft Muetzig Beer and the food is amazing. Best is that they are really child friendly. Prizes reasonable, we like it and recommend it.

Having lived in Rwanda for a year, I was able to try many different restaurants in Kigali but Sol e Luna stood out. Pizza is my favourite food and this place serve the best in town. The menu is enormous and caters to all diets and tastes. The ambience is probably one of the best of any restaurant in Kigali.... More

Great views, with incredible pizza and a decent staff. I ate there twice in one week - once getting the seafood pasta (four stars) and once getting a pizza (six stars! Is that even possible?). Try a Virunga craft beer, and make sure they give it to you in a Virunga craft beer glass. Skip the house wine.

I went to Sol e Luna with an italian friend who was visiting Kigali. He was surprised to get a bit of an Italian feel right here in Kigali. Food served was good, although not hot enough for my taste. Staff wasn't particularly friendly, they were just OK (i.e. just take order, but not give you any advise or recommendation)

I'm sure I've written a review on this place before, but just wanted to reemphasize on how great the Italian food here is. They have the most extended pizza menus I've ever seen. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere is nice and cosy. Service sometimes can be slow when they're busy. But its a must try out place here in... More
