“Close the real thing”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

While this place is known for gelato, the food is pretty good also. The gelato is pretty close to some of good stuff you can get in Rome. They are a little limited by the small space. I'm sure there are people that turn away when they see the line.

Wonderful gelato. Pricey. Free Samples! GREAT dessert. Near the Peace center and downtown area. Easy walk. This gelato is worth the price.

“Wonderful treat! And not just gelato!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I'm always happy to have time to stop in at Luna Rosa. They have more than just gelato too, but of course that's what I'm there for! Decent pricing, and great gelato, they're very friendly and you can sit inside or outside. I've recently discovered they even have wine! Guess I only have eyes for the gelato. :)

“Great Gelato and pizza”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Gelato tastes just like that which I had in Rome.

Pizza is very good----thin crust with many toppings.

Staff is very friendly.

Prices are not cheap but certainly affordable

“My favorite spot down town - Do not visit with out trying!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I have been going to Luna Rosa almost since they opened the doors. The family and staff that run this gem is off the charts awesome. The gelato is the best I have ever had. I highly recommend the Kahlua, Nutella, and Chocolate Velvet. The prices are no more than anywhere else and I promise you will not walk away disappointed. Plus, you can try all of what they have and they enjoy it. Never do you feel rushed and never do they treat you like "just another customer". It's my favorite place to stop downtown. I hope you give it a try.
