A MUST stop when you are in downtown Greenville!

This is the best Gelato we have ever tasted and is a MUST to try! They also have a very nice restaurant for Lunch, the food is excellent as well. You can get samples of the flavors to ensure you like them before ordering and can get 1,2,3 scoop cones with 3 different flavors. If you like gelato... read more

We love this place! The gelato and service are always spot on. We have also been here for lunch and dinner, both which were excellent. This is a great spot to grab gelato after a meal with the kids, or enjoy lunch or dinner in one of the best places downtown. We will always continue to enjoy this place!

If you can't get to Italy for Gelato, this is the place to get it in the Southeast! Delicious! Lots of flavor choices and on a nice, hot summer day you can sit outside and enjoy it and pretend you are in Tuscany!

Every time that I am in Greenville, I mention wanting to try this gelato shop. My kids and I finally drove downtown today specifically to try this and were not disappointed. It was delicious and the shop has a very cozy feel. My only issue is finding somewhere to park!

Luna Rosa is a quaint little Gelato shop located in downtown Greenville. Their Gelato is the BEST I have had. Although the gelato can be a bit pricey, its not any more pricey than other gelato shops you visit and you get a LOT of gelato for your money. The Gelato is fresh and tasty. My little family stops at... More

This gelato is as authentic as it comes. The owner said he trained in Italy. They also have nice soups and salads (for those who are gluten free) and other italian food options. There is indoor and outdoor seating.

My daughter and I tried the Blue Lemonade Gelato--delicious! My mother-in-law tried one of the sugar-free options and said it was also very good.

Luna Rosa is absolutely my favorite location for gelato! It is the closest that you will get to the real thing this side of Italy. I've also had the panninis there and they've been very good, but the gelato is the star. A "must stop" when in downtown Greenville.

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.
