We have been going to Lola for quite sometime. We love the Pizza, chocolate chip cookies and the ice cream. However, it seems whenever we go, the wait for a table just gets longer and longer. Lola is big and popular enough that they should start taking reservations. Unless we go early, we don't bother anymore as we know it... More

When I saw this pizzeria featured on dinners, drive-ins and dives, I knew I had to go here. Fortunately, I had a business trip to Minneapolis and took advantage to get to Pizzeria Lola and was glad I did, even thought it is a 1/2 bus ride from downtown Minneapolis. I had a sweety pie pizza which was great. The... More

We have had a great experience for the whole family every time we have went! Parking isn't always the easiest around there but other than that no issues. Also try the "sister joint" Hello Pizza for slices.

Every course from starter to dessert was amazing. Elizabeth was our server and made our dining experience extra special. Seldom would I take the time to review a pizza joint but this one is the gold standard!

After all the hype about this place, I was expecting AMAZING. It was amazingly expensive- for a 12 inch pizza. The ingredients were fresh and high quality, but they hardly put any of it on the pizza. I felt like I was eating a giant piece of crust. Root beer was delicious. Service was friendly.

It is a shame that we live in the Twin Cities and had to find out about Pizzeria Lola from a friend from CA. He was planning to come to town so I asked if there was anywhere specific he wanted to go. His only reply was here. Unfortunately, his trip fell through. We ended up going a couple weeks... More

Pizzeria Lola has fabulous pizza that you won't find at other places. They also have foods that are very good to go along with the pizza. The food is all made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. The service is friendly and very good. A great neighborhood place that everyone can enjoy.

I have been here a few times and every pizza I have had was better than the last one. Both the standard and the more creative ones are insane. The copper oven sits right in the middle of the restaurant and is an attraction by itself.

I make my own pizza's from scratch. I was not any better than other home made pizza places. I like ZA's in Forest Lake the best!

Had to try this place after watching Triple D and it did not disappoint. I find many places who become really famous after being on TV go downhill but not this place. Tried 2 pizzas, both vegetarian, an appetizer and gelato and they were all great! They are still pumping out quality pizzas for sure. Was a busy place even... More
