Amazing Gelato.. Cant get this in Atlanta

We don't have anything like this near us in Atlanta, so anytime we are visiting the Greenville area we always stop here for Gelato. They have a great selection, you can have more than one flavor in your cup. The lunch choices are great too. Staff is wonderful. Finding a parking spot is difficult... read more

Incredible service. So good I gave him my card. But even better than that is the gelato. I had the strawberry shortcake and chocolate velvet. Both were unreal. My wife had the chocolate velvet and birthday cake. This place is definitely deserving of being the top rated dessert place in Greenville.

Some people think this place is only around for their gelato - and they are wrong. Now, don't get me wrong, the gelato is fantastic and authentic and they have many varieties for all tastes, but the actual food is not to be overlooked!! Amazing sandwiches, soups, salads, Italian dishes. The owners and managers are real deal Italian and know... More

You must try the gelato. I haven't tried the entrees available at the restaurant, but after reading the reviews I definitely will on my next visit. I can say that the gelato is amazing. Anytime my husband and I are in the downtown area the kids beg us to stop at Luna Rosa. It can be a bit pricey, but... More

Great food and nice atmosphere in the heart of downtown Greenville. The creamy tomato soup is the bomb :)

The tomato eggplant soup is the best ever! It's light and made fresh everyday. You will not be disappointed!

They have great Gelato and always have a lot of flavors. For lunch, I always have their Prosciutto Panini.
