A good stop

The pizza here was quite tasty. We had the Lady Zaza and their special of the day which was basically the sunnyside without the egg and adding fresh figs. They both had some really nice flavors and the crust was wonderfully thin (my favorite!). Unfortunately, the Lady Zaza was fairly burned. I like... read more

Compared to punch pizza, Lola sets itself apart as a great date spot with great service, decor, and solid desert menu. Parties of 4 or smaller are easy to seat. Park a block away and walk for easy parking.

The wife and I went for dinner. Pizza was good, nice beer selection. If you do not like to experiment with pizzas, there are one or two on the menu for you, otherwise it's a great place to try something different. It was busy and they said about a 20min wait, 7mins later we were seated. Food was quick to... More

Delicious pizza combinations on top of classic wood fire oven crust. This is one of our top places to bring visitors coming to Minneapolis. Even on a week night, the wait is pretty long - luckily the beer selection is great and even if there isn't room at the bar, you can grab a beer and stand against the wall.... More

We have been to Lola's at least ten times and it just keeps getting better! Their pizza is a thin crust with a delicious sauce. The toppings are very fresh and consistently good. Make reservations as they are busy! We like to sit at the bar where you can watch them make the pizzas and cook them in their huge... More

Great neighborhood spot with a menu of pizzas with nightly specials. Love the Ma-sharoni with the homemade fennel sausage. Have had a special of butternut squash. Recently had the Korean BBQ with the roasted cauliflower as a starter - both fabulous! And the ice cream for dessert ties it all together. Highly recommend!

was ok, the egg pizza was runny and just not appealing to us. went twice once both times for lunch. Had the Korean BBQ pizza both times, the cheese plate and a small salad. The BBQ pizza was hit or miss, the first time was good - not great, 2nd time it was waaay to spicy. For us it's overpriced... More

The handful of times I've visited, whatever tasty pizza special they've created I trusted the chef. Get there early, or don't mind the wait. Lola is worth it.

I was so pleasantly surprised when my wife (& our dogs) picked me up from the airport & drove us to one of our favorite neighborhood eateries for dinner! We used to live within walking distance before moving out to the burbs, & we miss it dearly. It seems way too rare these days to find a place to eat... More
