Posted on | No Comments

Wondering what you can enjoy from Luna Rosa Gelato Cafe in Downtown Greenville? Would you be surprised to learn it’s a lot more than just gelato? Learn all about the Ortiz Family and the restaurant perfectly situated in the heart of Downtown Greenville.

My first encounter with Luna Rosa was at an event for FMF Chef Alliance in 2019. It was a chef potluck, where local chefs came with food and everyone had a party and just enjoyed the food and live music. It seems like a lifetime ago now. In the middle of the party, a cart was rolled out into the middle and it turned into a gelato party. The gelato was so delicious, children and adults were all walking around with big smiles on their faces as if Santa had just arrived.

Then Covid-19 came knocking.

We’ve watched restaurant after restaurant close due to the incredible challenges they have had to face to stay open and do it safely. The Kidding Around team has tried to keep local restaurants front and center for readers, encouraging support when and how you felt appropriate. This week, Luna Rosa asked the community for help. If you are looking for a place to eat in the coming weeks, a place to grab a cool treat, a cocktail, or anything, the Ortiz family could certainly use your patronage right now. They offer curbside pickup, outdoor dining, a kids menu, all the things you could want in a restaurant right now.
