This might be the best Italian in town, but having tried both pasta and pizza, I would definitely recommend the pizza. On my second visit I had pasta and the sauce was overpowering. The anchovies and tuna dominated all other ingredients. On the other hand, on my first visit, I tried the calzone and it was as good as one... More

They were very accommodating to our group of about 30. We were served a buffet with a wide variety of food.

Although we have visited Rwanda several times this was our first visit to Sol e Luna - how I wish we had discovered it on previous visits. The entrance door is all that you can see from the road, once through the door you descend down the steps into a tiered areas overlooking Kigali which look beautiful especially at night.... More

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Rwanda. Service is good and the food outstanding. It is not as clearly signposted, you could easily get lost. It however is worth it, when you eventually find it. Hint - To get there, a good reference point is the RDB, once you are there, if you ask, most people know... More

I was in Rwanda on a business trip and had limited time at lunch to go to regular restaurants with slow service, so I always looked for a buffet. The Sol e Luna buffet was very nice, with many choices that would suit just about anyone. The only reason I say "just about anyone" was that, as a vegetarian, I... More

I recommend getting here before 7. We waited 90 minutes before getting our pizzas. Everything was good, but its a big place and gets crowded and the kitchen gets backed up. They have about 100 types of pizza and pasta.

Every time I pass by Sol e Luna, I can see many, many cars in front of this restaurant. I know it has scenic view and spacious place to seat. But, even though they had great oven and big kitchen, it needs some change. Every food was too salty... I don't know why but... yes. Food was salty.

We live in Muhanga, where things are a bit cheaper, but we came here for a special birthday treat for the buffet and it was delicious. I really can not say enough good stuff about it. It is a selection of salads and hot food, all very Italian. They use the finest and freshest ingredients and combine them in the... More

We ordered grilled Capitaine fish. It took exactly 30 minutes for the waiter to come back and tell us "sorry no more capitaine! ". He suggested grilled tuna with a variety of vegetables and sauce. An hour later and after many reminders the fish arrives: too dry to swallow without a sip of soda after each bite. The only vegetable... More
