If you are not from the US be careful. You will be required an ID that's "approved" by the state of MN. So sad to be discriminated and not allowed to drink if I have a Mexican OFFICIAL id.

Went alone on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Place was packed, but there was counter seating available. Had the Lady Zaza (kimchi pizza). I warn you, sitting by the oven, the smoke gets to you but it's temporary as it's vented quickly. The pizza was hot, spicy, sour and not too much for one person. I even had room for their... More

Long over due review. I used to live in mnpls and this was my top favorite for pizza. They have other menu items and hood selection of salads. The pizza is incredibly good. The service was exceptional and worth it to wait- it is rather small.

Fast service, great pizza! The only "complaint" I have is the pizzas are not made very cheesy and I'm a cheese lover! We will definitely return again!

Special Pie of the week is fresh Fig, quite the taste treat. Got a seat immediately at the counter where I like to sit. Kim never disappoints with her special creations and the fresh Fig pie is a real winner. Keep coming back again and again when I need my pizza fix!!!

Warm atmosphere, but very busy. Be prepared to wait for a table, but it's worth it. Lola offers an interesting collection of eclectic wood-fired pizzas for more of the adult crowd with something for everyone. Appetizers are frequently changing and typically seasonal, but they're always something special. The Korean touch to some of the pizzas (Korean BBQ, Lady ZaZa) is... More

Amazing pizza (perhaps the best in MN) and great appetizers!! Beer tap selection is good. Just be ready for a long wait to get a table.

Wow, of all the amazing places in Minneapolis to eat, I see Pizzeria Lola is #1! And now that I'e eaten there, I can attest that this is for a reason. My husband and I attempted to call ahead, but be forewarned: there is no call-ahead seating or reservations. Be prepared to wait. We got there around 6:30 on a... More
