This is some of the best pizza you will eat. The meats, dough, and sauce are just incredible. The Caesar salad was delicious as well. In addition, the restaurant is simply beautiful. The wall of photo-booth photos and the great copper oven create a unique charm. This is certainly the best restaurant in Minneapolis. I do have one gripe, though.... More

My wife and I loved this place, We found it by searching TripAdvisor and seen that it was ranked number 1 on restaurants in the Minneapolis area. After reading some of the reviews we knew this place gets crowded. So we went in earlier. Our waiter Eric was excellent. He gave us great suggestions. We had the Korean barbecue and... More

Have been to Lola's twice since moving back to Minneapolis recently and now understand why it was always packed when I drove by on previous visits to Mpls. The Forager and the Xerxes pizzas are sumptuous, with flavorful toppings and excellent thin-but-chewy crusts. And Lola's appetizer/side of roasted Brussels sprouts achieves the impossible: it makes the normally near-inedible, delicious. Service:... More

My girlfriend and I had watched a Food Network show where they had pizza at Lola's. We had been wanting to go for a long time but it is always so very busy. This time, a couple of Saturday's ago, we arrived at 4:30pm and even though there was a 30-minute wait, it was well worth it. I tried the... More

I had the the Sunnyside (La Quercia guanciale, pecorino, cream, leeks & two organic eggs sunnyside up) and it was delicious. I am a fan of wood-fired oven pizza and this was definitely a great one. The staff was also excellent, attentive without hovering.

Almost missed this experience due to the Valentine's Day rush. Frustrated with finding a suitable reservation for my wife and me, I resorted to the never-fail resource, Trip Advisor. Punch in "current location", "restaurant", sort by "rank, and there it is. The number 1 choice by diners, Pizzeria Lola. I call and the recording says, "No reservations accepted and no... More

We drive past this all the time, and there's always a long line out the door. We hoped foolishly to go early enough on a cold day to miss the crowd, but it also was Valentines Day - oops. Very long wait (35-45 minutes) and standing room only even at 1:30 pm. Waiter was ok, but violated my pet peeve... More

Great pizza from a wood fired oven. Tried smoked pig and Korean BBQ. Both tasted great. Smoked pig having a sweet flavor. Very popular. Expect a short wait.

Great food and a fun place with a photo booth but a LONG wait and it's always jam packed (a sign of great food I know but still!)
