Ranked the number one restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina on tripadvisor.com for three years running. Luna Rosa Gelato Café is a family owned and operated restaurant located in downtown Greenville at 9 West Washington Street right off Main Street. We feature authentic artisan gelato, made fresh daily in our café, as well as homemade food for lunch. Our gelato has been hailed as the best in the United States and the locals will attest to our food (soups, salads, pizzas, pasta and panini) being some of the best in the downtown dining scene.

Luna Rosa’s atmosphere is warm and inviting. Our service is friendly and informative. We have seating inside, as well as outside, weather permitting, under a canopy of umbrellas. Table service is provided for our dining customers and Luna Rosa is child and dog (outside) friendly.

We like to say that gelato is simply better ice cream. And we serve it along with the food you wish your mom used to make. But don’t take our word for it. Stop by and taste for yourself. Feel free to sample all of our twenty daily flavors of gelato and sorbetto. We are sure, if you can settle on a favorite or two or three, that you will agree.

Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream. It contains one third the amount of butter fat found in premium American ice cream. However, despite its lower fat content, gelato is creamier and more flavorful than regular ice cream because it contains much less air.

You eat with your eyes as well as your mouth, and our gelato looks very different from the frost-laden, cardboard tubs you’re use to seeing in ice cream parlors. Our gelato is mounded in stainless steel pans using the traditional techniques of artisan gelato making and served with a spatula, instead of a scoop, to create our signature "points." Gelato is also served at a warmer temperature than American ice cream, which allows its full flavor to be enjoyed from the first creamy mouthful.

Both our gelato and our sorbettos are made fresh daily from the finest imported italian flavorings as well as our own proprietary, hand crafted flavors. Both products are free of preservatives and our sorbettos are also fat free and made only with fresh fruit or juice.

Perhaps the only thing better than our gelato is our food. We offer a full menu of food and beverages. So join us for lunch and be sure to stay for dessert.

All of our food is prepared from scratch using recipes perfected and collected through the years by family and friends. We have a variety of soups, salads, pizzas, pasta and panini that are availabe everyday along with unique daily specials. Our entreés are served with seasonal fruit, side salad or garlic toast and are complimented beautifully by our wine and beer collection or the best "sweet tea" in the south.

We serve lunch seven days a week. Reservations are not required but are gladly accepted for larger parties. We are also happy to prepare an order for you to pick up and take home and we do accept catering requests. However due to our size and the fresh preparation of all of our food we have a very limited delivery area.
