Absolutely the best pizza we have found in kigali. All pizza's are made in stone oven and the toppings are fresh. Absolutely a restaurant you should visit when in Kigali.

This is a pretty restaurant with nice views over Kigali and it is very near Beausejour hotel where we stayed. We went twice during our stay and had a pretty decent meal although I wouldn't say exceptional -just standard for an Italian. However prices are good, service was fast and staff attentive.

Made three visits here during my time in Kigali. Decent food and acceptable service. On the third visit due to poor menu labelling and communication we got an order we could not eat( dairy intolerant) We sent it back untouched. We were charged for this and upon raising a query was told by the serving staff that if we did... More

Authentic Italian food that was well prepared and tasty. Covered but open-sided venue that was friendly and atmospheric. Plenty of dining choices, with an excellent range of starters and main courses although only a couple of the desserts are truly Italian. Would definitely return.

I regularly visit Sol e Luna for business lunch meetings. At noon they offer a wonderful buffet. Very suitable also for vegetarians with warm and cold dishes and dessert. Several seating corners around the place offer sufficient privacy. Recommended!

Eat outside in the evening, high up on a hill side, overlooking the sparkling lights of Kigali. What a wonderful surprise to find good quality, authentic Italian food in the heart of this city. I had Il Padrino pizza - and it was one of the best of any that I have had in the world. Crispy base, good balance... More

I've dined at Sol e Luna on at least a dozen occasions, and have always had good experiences. Variety on the menu is always good, the beer is cold, and service is good. In addition, in the evening, the view of the dome at the Kigali Conference Centre as it changes colour is always interesting.

This was the biggest pizza I had in Africa - and it was really good, so was the mushroom risotto. Our waitress was a bit quiet, we never knew if she had understood what we wanted but found out soon that she had. The best about the place is the location - you sit outside but covered and have a...

Nice Italian Restaurant in Kigali with al fresco dining. Largest pizza menu I've ever seen! There is also a lunchtime buffet as well as an A La Carte menu. Highly recommended for a casual but good quality lunch.

If you like to be where Kigali expatriates go and eat one of over 100 pizza on the menu, this is your place. Some of the pizza choice is good, some funny, some ridiculous. But I guess that's to be expected, if you offer such a wide choice. Other food is, frankly, not good at all. Service is slow, since... More
