Interesting Pizza experience

Finding the place was straightforward. The train tracks twist off from the Av Central near Calle 33, a path follows the tracks so no worries about being crushed by metal beasts. After 100m a lit up set of stairs on the other side of the tracks lead to a locked door with a grill you can see through... read more

Hard to find, but follow maps directions and then look for a house facing the train tracks that says "cafe" on it. The name Lolo's is not on the restaurant that we could see. It's a white house with white grated door. Call ahead to make sure they are open (they were closed for lunch today, Friday). We ordered the... More

I was volunteering at a hostel in San Jose and we had a big group of peace core volunteers check in, they kept mentioning they were going to "train tracks pizza". I asked and asked and no one would let me in on this knowledge of a hidden pizza place until a few days later after a few late nights... More

I lived in New York for 4 years and this is still some of the best pizza I have ever eaten. The hot sauce is absolutely amazing. The decorations are cute and kitschy. The wine selection is pretty good. You'll pay a little more, but you will get what you pay for. Absolutely freaking delicious. The owner of my favorite... More

Lolo's was a good recommendation. A cool little spot, right of the train tracks. However, the owner was BLARING Led Zepplin over the stereo. We asked if he could turn it down just a little bit, so we could hear each other talk (the was only one other couple in the restaurant at the time). He turned it off. We... More

Great service, good music, great pizza, nice decoration and excellent location packed in a tiny almost hidden restaurant in one of the most bohemian neighborhoods in San José.

Ok so if you are looking for pizza hut or the ritz carlton, you have come to the wrong place. If you are looking for a great atmosphere with great food and wine and really good music, then you have found your place. Tucked into a side-street, and right off the train tracks, Lolo's is a perfect place to escape... More
