We chose Lolita instead of Lola which is Michael Symon's better known restaurant in Cleveland because there were many more conservative choices. Lola's menu is challenging while Lolita's is much more casual (Lolita is pizza, pasta, chicken, pork chop where Lola is heart and hooves) We actually chose to have the brussel sprout pizza as an appetizer, knowing it was...

The four of us split appetizers and a pizza. I was thrilled to try pig ear and tail cooked to perfection. My husband loved the bone marrow although it is lost on me. We also shared fried chicken livers- a flash from the past. By far the best was the mushroom pizza with the perfect wood fired crust and supremely... More

I visited Lolita for a bachelor party. We were a very large party, they sat us down and took care of us without any issues. They were very accommodating, the food was great, and I would absolutely go back.

Diverse and eclectic menu. We ended up splitting four appetizers. Excellent wine selection, albeit slightly expensive.

We've been stopping in here for years. Sometimes we have a formal dinner; more often we have some delicious food and a few drinks at the bar. Either way it does not disappoint. Delicious appetizers, a well done house charcuterie, specialty vegetables all available at the bar. The bartenders create some of the drinks and you can tell they love... More

My daughter made reservations because she had already been to another of Michael Symon's restaurants and loved it. We both love trying new places and this one did not disappoint. The atmosphere was neighborhoody, casual and fun. The waitress was very helpful... It was our first visit, so we had her recommend some appetizers and we picked the Pizza. Since... More

I went on a business dinner the first time and had once of the best meals of my life. It was a pasta dish with clams - amazing. So when my husband came to town I took him on a date night. I checked the menu online and verified my dish was still there (been dreaming about it), but when... More

Lolita is an absolute gem located in the Tremont neighbourhood. The menu is very creative & wonderfully delicious. The appies are to die for, especially the pig tails & ears, the bone marrow, & the chicken livers. If ever in this part of the world, this is a definite must eat at restaurant.

Visited sisters in area, and took trip through Tremont are where we grew up. Always liked Michael Symon on tv, and always wanted to visit one of his establishments. Appetizers are wonderful, as is everything else on menu. We all tried something different. The Ohio Ribeye, and Pork Chop Milanese were terrific. Great place

My husband surprised me and took me to Lolita's for my birthday. I had always wanted to try it and it was well worth the wait! We were seated at a cozy table in the corner. The service was excellent, as well as the food! We tried the bruschetta, cured meats, beet salad and bone marrow apps. Everything was delicious... More
