Cold, Smooth, and Delicious

I am a gelato lover, so Luna Rosa's delicious gelato is a favorite of mine. Chocolate velvet is the best, but I haven't ever had a bad flavor, so go for the one you like best. The Sorbeto is also great: lemon is tangy, other flavors are sweet and delicious.

Tucked away just off Main Street this place almost always has a line out the door. The workers never rush you and encourage trying a few flavors. Rich and creamy and wonderful service-thumbs up!!

Great gelato with many flavors including some strange new twists. Must take a short-detour from Main Street and have some excellent desert and enjoy the fun atmosphere.

I had been wanting to visit this place, and when a friend had a birthday dinner at a nearby restaurant, we decided to go here for desert. Its not a big place, but the gelato is really yummy and they give free samples. There is some seating available indoors. I would recommend for a sweet treat while exploring downtown.

This is a great place to visit to ease the sweet tooth. Excellent choice of flavors. Staff is friendly and willing to sample. Tiramisu gelato was wonderful although the lady finger cookies had a slight freezer burnt taste.

It is really just that good that we make the trip from Spartanburg. We love the gelato. It is the best gelato I've ever had. I've also heard their food is awesoms too. The service is normally good. I don't recommend going on a weekend as they are always super busy and may be out of the flavor you want.... More
