Excellent home made gelato, have enjoyed every flavor they've had (alas, rarely do they have hazlenut, my favorite). Can get crowded, thanks to its location and reputation. And be aware that you pay at the register (on the left) then with your receipt make your choices. Gelato is pricier than regular ice cream, so be prepared for that. They have... More

We have went here a few times and love it. I always get the sorbet because I can't have the gelato. It is really good and taste almost like ice cream. My husband gets the gelato and loves it. They are very friendly and will let you try as many of the flavors as you wish. Love this place.

Each time I walk in, I'm blown away by the how beautiful the gelato display is! This is a favorite stop for lunch - salads and pizza are my favorite. But the gelato is not to be missed. If we eat dinner downtown, I always leave room for a Luna Rosa gelato. Anything with Chocolate Velvet is wonderful! My husband... More

Gelato for 4 will run about $25-30. Have been here a couple of times. The gelato is really delicious. I think the salted caramel has to be my favorite one so far. Even better I think is the sorbet. The grapefruit sorbet was crazy good. This is a nice stop for a special treat but kind of pricy to make... More

Don't get me wrong I recommend going here you will love love love the place. I just made a mistake with a living social and when I was talking to the guy at the register seemed a bit Kurt.

A lunch appointment led me to Luna Rosa for the first time. I had the soup of the day (Italian Wedding Soup) and it was fabulous. So tasty! I had the French dip sandwich that was sized perfectly and delicious. The owner made sure we had everything we needed -and since the sandwich with the soup was just too much,... More
