Fell short of expectations

We had been hearing about Pizzeria Lola forever and how phenomenal it was so our expectations were pretty high. We had the My Sharoni, Hawaiian, and Korean BBQ. They were all good, but nothing extraordinary - especially at $16 each, for a fairly small pizza. I would go to Pizza Luce a thousand... read more

They were all good, but nothing extraordinary - especially at $16 each, for a fairly small pizza. I would go to Pizza Luce a thousand times before here.

Saw on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and heard great reviews from friends so we decided to try. Left full and happy! We enjoyed a couple of the pizzas including the My-sharoni (a sausage and pep combo), a hawaiian, a korean bbq, and the sunside. The combinations were all different but well thought out and the flavors were amazing. I have... More

We decided to go here when visiting friends in Minneapolis for the weekend. We had heard good reviews in the past and finally made it over after a day golfing and visiting the Como Zoo. We tried a couple of their tap beer selections, which were all great, while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Very... More

We were at Pizzeria Lola on labor day Sunday at 5:00 pm and it was packed. Hostess estimated a 40 minute wait, it was closer to 25. We had a nice fresh salad and our pizza had a delicious char on the crust and toppings. If you wait in the small bar area , you can watch pizza bake in... More

We stopped in after a day at Como Park Zoo for some pizza and beers. The location is wonderful. It reminds me of neighborhood bars and restaurants in Denver. We sat on the outdoor patio and enjoyed a sunny afternoon. They have a nice selection of micro brews. The pizza offerings are not your normal pepperoni or sausage variety. It... More

We were warned about a wait, so we came early on a Saturday evening and only waited 10-15 minutes. The pizza was definitely worth the wait. The pizza option are creative, using simple ingredients. The combinations are delicious. It was some of the best pizza we have ever eaten. It is a busy place, but the ambience is nice. The... More

Had the sweet Italian pizza. Was very good. The peppers made the pizza. Small restaurant with an outside patio. All pizzas are 12". Crust is crunchy but not hard. Service was fast.

The gormet pizzas were good but a bit over the top. Crusts were thin and almost too crunchy. We had a long wait as well.

We received a gift card to Pizzeria Lola over a year ago. It seemed that every time we stopped or called the wait was an hour or longer. With two small kids, we just couldn't wait that long. Finally we decided to go right away when they opened at 11:00 am. A little early for lunch, but it worked--no wait.... More

Neighborhood gem for sure. Saw on this hot spot on Cooking Channel and made effort to get here..and so glad I did. It's true you will wait for about an hour for your table but they serve drinks on the patio or you can do full service menu at the bar. Well organized for a crazy busy place and staff... More
