Fairly good italian restaurant

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... read 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'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

Was here for a group dinner while in Kigali. Was able to make a reservation in advance. Wide variety of Italian options; primarily an expat spot; great options for outdoor seating. Most people enjoyed their food! Service was slow, but no slower than normal in Kigali. Good options for Italian wine, too. The outdoor seating is really the key. Great... More

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.
