From our family to yours. At Luna Rosa Gelato cafe we want every guest to experience something special. We remember what it feels like to be pleasantly surprised at the level of service, atmosphere, and quality of cuisine when visiting a new establishment. Our craft cocktail program, designed by Jeni (Pink) Blyth, is meant to compliment a wide variety of Italian comfort food inspired by Chef John Flynn and finished with one of our fresh made artisan gelato flavors. Our motto is to treat each person that walks through our door as if they were a guest in our home.

    Shared a quick bite before an event across the street. Made a last minute reservation and got a table outside. Very much enjoyed the food and the service was great too. Had pastas and it was delicious, wish I would have saved room and had time for Gelato (which is amazing)! Outside was a bit breezy due to thunderstorms in the area...but a great spot to people watch.

    Food wasn't great. My rather expensive salmon entree was dry, although the saffron risotto was excellent. My dinner companion found the eggplant mushy and pasta overcooked. Service was great, though and the best part of the dinner was the gelato, which was wonderful.

    We stopped in for Sunday lunch after grabbing a reservation on Open Table. It’s a bit of a strange set up with Gelato served in the front, but the hostess/server quickly spotted us and directed us to a table. We were a little apprehensive since no one was dining in, but it seemed like the service was good so we stuck around. Glad we did. We each had a panini. Both were served in large portions and had a lot of flavor. We chose fresh watermelon as our side, which has little to do with the restaurant’s ability, but it was really refreshing on a hot day in Greenville. By the time we left, the seating was about half full so the crowd definitely picked up. I believe our server was the owner’s daughter. She was very friendly. Definitely recommend paying them a visit.

    Food was ok. Not delicious. Service started out good. After food was served, no one came back to check on us. Cloth tablecloths are covered with white paper that is torn from a large roll on the wall. Very loud and distracting especially in a small space. Disappointed.

    We went in for a fantastic meal due to other reviews, well….they only had about 25% of the menus available. Then when I ordered the server came back to say they were out of the item I ordered. We were the only people in there. To say the least, WE WILL NOT GO BACK THERE FOR SURE!!!

    Luna Rosa GreenvilleResponded on July 15, 2022Our one and only oven was BROKEN for the entire day. Unfortunately, that means many of the items that are on our menu could not be made. It was very upsetting to us, as you stated we are very highly rated and that is because we NEVER want our customers to be disappointed. I apologize if Kevin did not state this info when you first sat down. But we did the best we could under a very stressful situation. I hope you have a great day.

    We ate at the Mauldin location the Friday before, and we decided to try this location because it is much closer to our house. The menu is not as large as the Mauldin location, but it is plenty varied. The service was excellent, as was the food. We had Chicken Marsala with Caesar Salads, and some gelato for dessert. We plan to try their pizza next.

    We chose Luna Rosa to eat before seeing Hamilton at The Peace Center. Everything was wonderful right up until we asked if we could order gelato for our dessert to eat with the last our wine. The waitress, who was more interested in her iPad throughout our entire meal than she was in serving us decided it was better to close out our check and tell us to go stand in line at the gelato counter to order it separately than to take our orders and add it to our check. She told us this was "the way they did things", but when my daughter went to the counter to order our gelato, the staff there told her we should've just added it to our tab so they could bring it directly to our table. The lady behind the bar told us the same thing. When we confronted the waitress, she lied again until we told her she'd decided what was best for her, not us, and at that point had wasted so much time trying to order our dessert that we no longer had time to eat it. She didn't seem the least bit concerned. Just smiled and walked away. So, while food is wonderful, don't go if you have expectations of having your whole meal served to you in a way that's enjoyable for you or will allow you to make a show on time.

    I think they should only be doing lunch, or not do reservations close to closing. We ended up sitting at the bar since the restaurant was completely empty and felt bad. The bartender was very friendly but before our appetizer came out she had poured herself a glass of wine and was also eating a pizza…next to us. It was all just so odd and made us what to get out of there and that we were in their way. As for the food we ordered a Milanese and the pasta was falling apart it was so overdone, my boyfriend got the chicken Marsala - it says it is served over fingerling potatoes and veggies. It came over a bed of French fries. The flavors were pretty good but just bizarre experience. I’ve gone for lunch and it was excellent, dinner service is just sad.

    Luna Rosa GreenvilleResponded on June 13, 2022Jamie, I sincerely apologize for making you feel uncomfortable last night. That was definitely not my intention. I also apologize that your food was less than perfect, I should have informed you that we had run out of potatoes and would be serving the Marsala over french fries (the way we used to serve it). Thank you for bringing these things to my attention. I hope you will give us a second chance to redeem ourselves.

    Service was very slow. Took 55 minutes to get our food. Menu price said meal was $26, but they charged $40. Server never came back to see if we wanted to order more drinks.

    Luna Rosa GreenvilleResponded on June 13, 2022I am so sorry that you didn’t have a stellar experience with us last night. We were doing everything in our power to feed the entire dining room at the same time, as everyone came at once and was going to the show. As for the price discrepancy, you must have gotten a menu that shouldn’t be in circulation. Since the price of Scallops has gone up significantly we have had to raise our price unfortunately. I appreciate your feedback, I hope you give us another chance.

    Luna Rosa In downtown Greenville has incredible Italian food. Everyone from Lauren, the owner’s daughter, to our wait staff and even the person who filled our water glasses was cordial, helpful and friendly. I had the shrimp Scampi,(my go to for any Italian restaurant) and the shrimp were cooked absolutely perfectly, and the sauce was lemony,buttery, garlicky goodness. My husband had their salmon special with risotto, and was also delicious. Of course, we topped off our wonderful dinner with their homemade gelato which is as good as any we had in Italy. If you love Italian food, make a reservation and go. You won’t regret it.

    Caprese for appetizer was good. Tomato was not quite ripe yet. A little crunchy. Caesar dressing was perfection. Best Caesar Ive ever had! The scallops and risotto was AMAZING! $40 for 4 scallops seemed a bit over priced. Shrimp Scampi was delicious! Large juicy shrimp and lovely large slivers of garlic. Service was great. Friendly, attentive, helpful.

    The food was poor. The lasagne was terrible, and someone who never complains said so. The chef salad was spinach and bacon, and I paid extra for the bacon. Spaghetti was mediocre at best. The bill for 4 adults and a child’s plate was $120, and portions were very small. This is an ice cream place.

    Luna Rosa GreenvilleResponded on May 22, 2022I am incredibly sorry that you had such an underwhelming experience last night. I sincerely wish that you had addressed your unhappiness last night so we could have had the opportunity to remedy it. Our lasagne is scratch made everyday and has been a beloved staple here for 14 years. So I am truly disheartened that you found it “poor”. We really are more than just an “ice cream place”. As a small family owned restaurant we always strive to do better. Thank you for the feedback.

    We loved Luna Rosa when we lived in SC, we visited on our trip back through, food is still amazing. Service was not that great, they seemed understaffed, which I understand. They overcharged us then told to get free gelato, but the line was about 20 people deep so felt turned off that they messed up our bill then asked us to wait another good bit of time after our food took about 45 minutes
