"Delicious home made dishes and gelato"

This is a wonderful place to go for lunch. The home made Italian dishes and soups are really, really good. The panini's are delicious and the salads are nice and fresh. The gelato is the best I've ever had, and you can try as many samples as you'd like before making your final choice. It's hard to... read more

I love the gelato at Luna Rosa, but you're missing out if you only stop by for dessert. The food is fantastic. Try the tomato soup with a freshly grilled panini, or enjoy a satisfying salad and a hearty portion of lasagna or baked ziti. Everything on the menu is delicious.

We eat here at least once a month...the gelato is to die for! The best I have ever eaten! We don't go downtown without visiting Luna Rosa. They usually have at least 12-14 different flavors and I have never been disappointed! All house-made. They allow you to taste before purchase. We have eaten lunch here several times...again, never been disappointed.... More

Super authentic and delicious. I've been to many places around the country and this one is very very good. I got strawberry shortcake this trip.

I came here on a Friday evening after dinner...I got the lemon flavored gelato. It was excellent! You could tell there was real lemon in it, and it was very creamy. The pricing was reasonable as well. I will definitely be returning here again.

We have never eaten the food there, but you should not come to Greenville without getting some Luna Rosa Gelato.

We have been every time we are in Greenville . The service is excellent . We had not tried the pizza. My wife loves the Fancy Nancy Pear Salad. Rick suggested the 1/2 Fancy Nancy so we could have an adequate serving before our Pesto Margherita pizza. A great choice . The Fancy has fresh Romaine, Spinish , Pears Pecans,... More

I have gone a few times for lunch, but mostly I go for the gelato. Their sorbet's are fabulous, and vibrant gelato flavors that can't be beat in Greenville. Friendly, helpful staff, who will let you try every flavor if you want.

Well, I suppose you could say that the review was written in my title. I went for lunch a few weeks ago and didn't regret it, in fact was pleasanty surprised by the friendly and prompt service (you often get friendly in Greenville, not so often prompt) and the quality of the food. I ordered a pizza with fresh tomatoes,... More
