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

I had read positive reviews of Sol e Luna on this site so was keen to see it first hand. The restaurant is nicely laid out in a terrace arrangement. The menu looks impressively comprehensive, though we just had the pizzas - which were very good indeed. Service was a little slow, but I wouldn't let that put me off... More

I have had several memories at Soleluna, most of them really great. The service here is very nice contrary to Rwandan service which is known to be slow and annoying, and sitting at Soleluna makes you realize how beautiful Kigali city lights are and how small Kigali is since you can see one end of the city. A plethora of... More

Alfresco restaurant, serves some great food and drinks. Particularly liked their pizzas. Don't try the one with french fries on them ! Tried it and regretted it. Other ones great.

I went there for pizza but it was only 11:30, the oven was not ready so I went for pasta. I did have lasagna, not that great, and tagliatelle way better. I think Sol e Luna is the perfect for pizza not so much for pasta.
