Wow, I was blown away when on a Tuesday night there was a 40 minute wait for a table, 2 hrs reported on the weekends... Well worth the wait! We found seats at the bar in no time flat. Grabbed a glass of vino and ordered a salad and the "Sweet Italian". Very good all the way around and enough... More

Back in the Homeland for a summer visit with the child…on a nostalgic romp through the old neighborhood. What an inspirational, charming, simply wonderful restaurant! Local beers, inventive pizzas, creative decor, accommodating, go-far-beyond-the-requirements servers. There is something incredibly special about Minneapolis and the off-the-charts quality of its food scene, something The Coastal Folk will never get, and that, for you... More

Always great, Pizza Lola never disappoints. Finally tried the Lady ZaZa pizza, with Kim-Chee, peppers, sausage and other unidentified garnishes. Loved it, love the frontal spice and subtle burn of the Korean spice. Daughter had her favorite Xerxes with spinach, goats milk feta, almonds and mozzarella. Veggie of the days was straw zucchini with fresh Parmesan shavings - also wonderful.... More

After hearing all the hype my friend and I decided to give Lola's a try. We were both surprised at the minimal topping and bland taste. We are big fans of Pizza Luce and other restaurants nearby. This visit was noteworthy due to the vast disparity between the hype and the actual experience. Needless to say we won't be returning.

What a GREAT pizzeria!!! From the atmosphere to the food, everything was excellent. We ordered to pies off the menu that were phenomenal, plus the special "Sweetie Pie Pizza" which has to be one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten!!! I love this place and will continue to visit every time I go to Minneapolis.

A group of very different girls congregated at Pizzeria Lola last Saturday night and found pizza love! First things first...they don't take reservations. We arrived at 6:30 and waited an hour. It was raining so the outside tables weren't open. A very nice waiter got us drinks and olives and kept us happy until a table opened up. It is... More

Had great service. Not a long wait on a Friday night. In a nice part of town. Outside seating is great. Pizza was probably thee best I've ever had.

Pizzeria LoLa was crowded and we had to wait a bit. While we were waiting, a server did ask us if we wanted anything to drink. I appreciated that bc we weren't being ignored even though we were eating yet. We got seats at the counter after about 8 minutes and ate there. It was much less noisy at the... More

We visited Pizzeria Lola because we saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The restaurant was bustling with people on Sunday afternoon and we had 5 min wait. The server got us a car seat sling when she escorted us to our table. We ordered meatballs, mixed greens, Margherita and sunny side up. We got our order delivered by Ann... More
