“A stop every time in Kigali...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Go here every time through Kigali as it is walking distance from Chez Lando and Beau se Jour Guesthouse. Italian style pizza that is as good as I had in Rome. Best in the city....though the only pizza I've had in the city.

“Italian food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Went for a quick lunch and had the "buffet" which was average. There were a few choices. However, the ambiance is great, as you are in an open space terrace, with the sun coming in and blessing us.

“A great place with a nice pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

If you are looking for a nice place, not to sophisticated, but with a good menu and fair prices, you should go to Sol e Luna.
An Italian restaurant, with good service, and a amazing pizzas. Really very thin and plenty of options.
If it is not pizza what you are looking for, try the pasta.
And the place is nice. With a nice view from Kigali at night

“Best Italian in Kigali - Just Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

We've been living in Kigali for 6 months, and Sol e Luna is by far our favourite Italian restaurant. It also has the best ambience of all the places we've been. There is just so much to offer, and the food is excellent - and authentic.

On Monday nights the pub quiz is great fun, if you're looking for something social. The issue with Kigali is that you can go to any restaurant at any time, and never have to wait for a table. Most of the times, you are one of a few people in the whole restaurant. If you want ambience, it's hard to get! But not at Sol e Luna - their steady stream of customers creates a warm and vibrant environment.

Their drinks are excellent - I particularly enjoy the Mediterranean Gin&Tonic, which has fresh rosemary. Pair that with a top quality pizza, or delicate fish dish, or an incredible eggplant (aubergine) parmigiana, and I'm in heaven.

The scenery is also great - come at sunset for expansive views of the hills and the lights. Really, you can't go wrong. We come again and again, and will likely continue to do so until we leave Kigali.

I have visited Sol e Luna both times I have been in Rwanda and it was delicious. The atmosphere is comfortable and beautiful and the food is wonderful. There are so many different pizza options that it is hard to choose. I wish I could bring this restaurant back home with me!
