My husband and kids wanted to take me out for a birthday lunch. I hit Trip Advisor to find somewhere we'd never been but thought we'd all agree on. Pizzeria Lola was ranked #1, so I thought, why not! We arrived shortly after 11AM, good time. I can see where this place gets busy. We ordered the anti pasta platter...YUM,... More

Saw the high ratings on TA and love pizza so wanted to try this place. We were not disappointed. There were long wait for a Tuesday night (630) if we wanted to sit inside. We shared a picnic table with another couple outside and only waited for about 10 minutes. BUSY place. We had meatballs for appetizer and those were... More

Great time at the bar. Pizza and meatballs were fantastic. Great service from Tyler. Save room for the DIY ice cream sandwich.

We took family to Pizzeria Lola to thank them for hosting us on a trip to Minneapolis. We selected it because we had seen it featured on a cable program. The restaurant has great appetizer plates and fun unique pizzas. The antipasto is a must, if for nothing else than the rosemary cashews and homemade cured meats. Many of the... More

This is a family favourite when we visit my sister and her family in Minneapolis. So happy that they are open for lunch as you can usually get a table without any wait and the food is just as fabulous. My personal favourite pizza (after trying most of them) is The Sunnyside. If you'd ever have told me to have... More

I came here because of the TA rating and i was in the area! This place has a super cool atmosphere with a Photo Booth you can hang your picture on the wall near. The waitress was friendly and our food arrived quickly! The food was very good, but I think theres a bit of over-hype for it. Mine was... More

My daughter lives in the twin cities and every time we visit her we alway try to eat at a new place. When she suggested eating here for her birthday, we were all for it. We got there around 5:15pm on a Saturday and it was already busy, but we only waited maybe 20 minutes and in that time we... More

Great tasting, moderately price food, sense of humor, excellent desserts. Really good (large) caesar salad - unless you want this for an entree, easily sharable. Quite an array of pizzas. We tried sausage and mozarella which was wonderful! Busy so encourage you to arrive early (we arrived at 11:15 for Saturday lunch, by noon it was mostly full. Don't expect... More

Arrived at 5:30 PM on a Saturday and were able to get an outdoor table for 8 in under an hour. I'm not a very adventurous eater, but I tried a few different pizzas and I loved them all. Fresh ingredients, great crust, and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere and very professionally operated.

I enjoyed this fine resteraunt with two co-workers over lunch. We started with fresh zuchinni appetizer which was baked with mint and lemon. It still retained some crunch and was a refreshing way to prepare for the main meal. The pizza was really spectacular. Fresh toppings (inhouse made fennel sausage, peppers) a full flavored sauce, and nice crispy/chewey crust. Service... More
