Italian
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.

    We enjoyed the pizza. Thin crust was great and enough to take home. Good wine list. Gelato was awesome and so many flavors.

    Very casual, almost a "hippie" vibe, much too casual for the price ranges, and for the "reservations" we made. Maybe it's just that I am not Gen X, Y or Z or Millenial. Tea was spoiled, bread was underdone and hard, ordered a second bread hoping for better...it was. Ranch dressing was too tart and tangy, Salad was bitter, with too many specialty greens and very little Iceberg. I was a bit unsettled by the fact that someone walked in off the street and without (visibly)washing hands began serving themselves ice cream and eating behind the counter, then went out and sat with customers, then served other customers ice cream. The server(our "waitress")was... ??? skittish, awkward, uninformed, asked about several items and she appeared to be clueless, saying things like..."uhhh, I don't know" or "oh man, I'll have to check on that" "It's the end of our week and we are running out of stuff cause we're gonna closed for the next two days" Telling us that she served us the last of the Coca-Cola(since the tea was spoiled)and had to pour that from a two liter bottle. On the bright side, the Lasagna was good to me, great to my wife. TIL(Today I Learned) that "Gelato" is just ice cream, nothing special.

    There’s a reason they charge for cancellations. Once you see it, you will want to go elsewhere for your meal. There is a gelato shop in the front. Restaurant feels like an afterthought.

No one said, wait let me get your waitress. At one point we were like who is our waitress because everyone was very attentive.

    I have to say I was disappointed. In order to have gf pasta it’s 20 min additional time and I’ve never had that problem anywhere else. They charge you if you cancel a reservation, but there was ZERO reason for a reservation, because nobody was there. The food was okay but not special. The staff was friendly and the gelato per my daughter was delicious. So I can only recommend the gelato

    The food was absolutely delicious. We started with a Napolitano pizza and the fried mozzarella medallions and they were phenomenal. I had the eggplant parmesan that was one of the best I have ever had. My husband had the salmon crema that was cooked to perfection. The staff, Elijah, Jeni, Chef Jaz and Chef P were delightful. I highly recommend eating at Luna Rosa.

    The waiter told us they were out of pizza, lasagna, bleu cheese dressing & Caesar salad. We decided to stay & I ordered Vito pasta which was dry & tasted reheated in the microwave. I asked for iced tea twice & was met with sarcasm for asking twice. Then it was explained that the tea machine too is “too hard to open”. The spaghetti & meatball, mushroom appetizer & house salads were at least tasty. The entire wait staff appeared confused & high as a kite. We felt rushed, unwelcome & that we were “in the way”. I would not recommend Luna Rosa to anyone & we will not go back!

    Good experience! The online menu which our group reviewed to chose a restaurant for dinner was not the menu used in the restaurant. The menu provided in the restaurant included significantly less meal options. This created an issue for one of our group who does not eat pasta or cheese. All of the options available to him online were not available via the in-house restaurant menu.

    Every time we come here we’re welcomed like an old friend. The atmosphere is beautiful and their staff is so friendly. I personally hated salmon until I came here. I tried my husband’s the first time we came and I now order salmon almost every time we come! We appreciate them doing reservations because they ensure our table is ready as soon as we arrive. However, even if you don’t I have never seen them turn someone away. They always find a spot for someone! Their Bartender, Jen, makes THE best drinks and is so gifted! Ask her to surprise you and you won’t be disappointed! If you’re looking for good service, amazing food, and a great environment…look no further. :)

    Sort of a last minute reservation but turned out to be an excellent choice. Stuffed mushrooms were excellent but disappointed that they had run out of lasagna. Sort of strange entrance to restaurant in that you walk through an ice cream/gelato parlor to get to the restaurant. Cocktails were excellent and the staff were extremely friendly.

    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.
