Located in Downtown Greenville, SC, Luna Rosa Gelato Cafe has become an iconic favorite for locals and travelers from all over the tri-state.



 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 scratch-made Italian comfort food at 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) as 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 three, that you will agree.

All of our food is prepared from scratch using recipes perfected and collected through the years by family. We serve lunch seven days a week. Reservations are not accepted but we are glad to receive a "Call Ahead" for larger parties and will give you priority seating when you arrive. We are also happy to prepare an order for you to pick up and take back to your home or office 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.
