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.

Wow! that's all I can say - I was totally surprised when I stumbled upon this restaurant! What was supposed to be a light meal ended up being a fantastic dinner! The pizza selection is something else and the taste was divine!! I was so impressed, we went back the following evening and I'm there again tonight!!

Though I am not a die-hard fan of Italian food, this restaurant definitely satisfied my cravings. The first time I went, I tried a vegetarian pizza which was delicious. The second time around I ordered a vegetarian calzone which was also top-notch. I was a little upset I wasn't able to try their tiramisu, probably my favorite dessert, just because... More

Great atmosphere, great view and great selection of yummy pizzas. Monday night quiz is good fun too - if you come first you get your food and drinks free however you will have to run the quiz the week after!

We found Sol E Luna by accident on our morning walk, can came back for a casual night out for pizza. The atmosphere is lively, with lots of families in attendance. The decor is traditional Italian with dark wood and red checked tablecloths. The deck is large and offers great views of the valley below. The menu is large, but... More

Is this supposed to be Italian food? If so, then ensure that the chefs have some appreciation of proper Italian cuisine. Or just call it continental international food. My pumpkin gnocchi was a doughy super ball atrocity swimming in a tasteless cream soup...to add, it appears the waiters overly cater to expats...so if you dont look like a stereotypical expat...

There is a huge menu including pizzas, pastas, fish, meat etc and a nice selection of wines from Italy by the glass or bottle. The food is always pretty good, the prices fair and the services professional.

We first came here for the quiz night, and it soon became a regular for us - so glad to read that its continuing. We only ever ordered the pizzas's to be honest, they were always well prepared, and one of the few Western items in Kigali that would have felt like good western food anywhere. If you are in... More
