We came here after the holidazzle parade. It was busy and had to wait. They have a photo booth ($3) that is fun to do while you wait. The service was Excellent! And the pizza was great! Nice beer selection. We had make your own ice cream sandwiches. Warm baked chocolate cookies with vanilla soft serve with olive oil and... More

When I found this place, I ate here 3 times in 3 days while on a trip. It has been permanently marked as a place I will be coming back to any time I am in the area (50 miles or less, it's that good). The pizza crust is worth eating, not just the transport mechanism for the pizza. The... More

Fires on - come on in and be happy! Unusual selection of pizza for meat lovers and others. Also nice selection of appetizers - several varieties of roasted veggies. We've always had to wait but never as long as they told us. While waiting pick a spot behind the bar that allows you to watch the pizzas being made and... More

We do a family Christmas outing every season. We pick a play then we all go out to eat. I took a chance and picked Lola from the reviews this year. It was such a hit- amazing pizza fun atmosphere. Amazing flavors-- yum. Keep in mind no reservations are taken, I knew this because I called ahead. The wait time... More

We visited this place without knowing much about it other than a few reviews we read online. Ordered a couple of drinks and the Roasted Cauliflower as an appetizer. Great, succulent dish. For pizza, we ordered The Boise without the gruyere and fontina cheeses. This is because we are particular about the type of cheese we consume. There should be... More

I guess I don't really see what the fuss is about. The decor/ambiance is good, I will give them that. They even have a photo booth in the back where you can snap some pictures and hang them up on their wall. The pizza was mediocre though. I asked the waitresses opinion and she advised that her favorite was The... More

This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. We went for lunch and split a Caesar Salad although they put there own twist on the salad adding Hearts of Palm it was very good! We also tried several pizzas all made with great ingredients; house cured meats, fanatics cheese options and great add ons. Whenever I visit Minneapolis... More

My Dad and I were in town for a Gophers football game. We stopped for dinner after the game and let me say, it was well worth it. Unique pizza selections with great flavor! We had the ice cream with salt and olive oil for dessert, sounds odd, but it was fantastic!

We saw this on DDD and had to check it out when we were in Minneapolis, Pizzeria Lola is actually in Edina, MN . It's a very quiet residential neighbourhood. We went there on a Sunday morning. Got there early before they opened. Glad we did, as the place was full within about 20 minutes of opening. Well, one word... More

Me and several friends recently ate at Lola's while in town for a Nebraska football game. This is the third time eating here. We arrived at 9:00 pm and had about a 30-minute wait. By far, this is my favorite pizza place in the country. I've yet to have anything that compares. Four of us had four different pizzas and... More
