I love the Italian food in Providence and Boston but this restaurant rivals the best of those cities. We had the basics (ceasar salads, fettuccine alfredo and spaghetti and meatballs) but they were outstanding. Giuseppe's meatballs were great. The canoli and cheesecake made by Lola were excellent as well. The waiting area is tiny and there may be a wait... More

Everything made from scratch! Amazing flavor and quality. Setting is an old house with individual rooms. Only seats 42, but very cozy. Lola is hands on, coming out occasionally to talk to her guests. What a wonderful dining experience!

One of the best home style Italian restaurants anywhere! You won't be disappointed in either the food or the value. Home cooked quality that Frank Sinatra would have loved! Quaint, cozy & the perfect place for a 'date" with your wife or significant other. (Momma Lola will chaperon of course) The wedding soup is awesome & the lasagna is better... More

As a full blooded Italian, I feel I have some credibility in rating this restaurant. We got there at 6 PM on a Saturday evening which was our first mistake. We had about a 45 minute wait in a restaurant without a waiting area. We were literally standing shoulder to shoulder with many other waiting customers in the eating area... More

Visiting family in Gahanna. This was their first time at Lola's. I had eggplant parm that was the best I've ever had. My daughter had the chicken parm - large piece of chicken. Both items came with asparagus spears and a small portion of spaghetti. They offered whole wheat and gluten free pasta if so desired. My son in law... More

This was our first time dining here, and it won't be our last!!!! Lola is delightful and made us feel right at home. She treated us like family and it is evident she treats everyone with warmth and kindness. The food was fresh and delicious !!!!!! We are looking forward to returning soon. A new favorite for us!

The first time my husband and I ate at Lola's, we were with friends. He ordered the pasta frita, deep fried pasta. Always calorie counting I said, who eats fried food? But his moans had me curious so I had to try it. Mama Mia, I was in LOVE! Imagine this...pasta Alfredo, with lots of cheese in the shape of... More

The atmosphere is just great. It is classy and you will not feel out of place dressed in your best. We had the pizza and salad, then terra me sue and it was great. The bread, however, was a little hard, but Italian. Pricey but worth it.

One of the little, out of the way places you hear about that has really good food. If you want some home cooked Italian fare this is the place. Love to eat here!

Small, hard to find Mom & Pop Italian restaurant. Missed it the first time past and had to turn around and come back....sits back from the road as part of a strip mall. Small friendly restaurant with mismatched chairs and tables, but friendly staff and good food. Good variety of food. Salads were tasty as were the pasta dishes. Wedding... More
