Love this place! It's small, but the food is wonderful. The owner is very friendly and genuinely seems to care about the satisfaction of her customers. Will without a doubt be returning soon.

This small place has wonderful Italian food and a homey decor. My husband and I split everything we ordered - the bruschetta was super garlicky - YUM! The creamy Sicilian sweet onion soup was rich, but too sweet for me. Our entree was the Giuseppe’s Sampler, which was a trio of lasagna, spaghetti with meatball, and the eggplant rigatoni.

Whether or not you're Italian, this small Italian restaurant--you can see into the kitchen from most seats--makes you feel you're at home with your Italian family having dinner. And the food tastes as good as if Nonna herself made it. Then again, it should, since Lola is right there cooking and seasoning and mingling with guests. Our server Shannon (don't... More

We recently visited this restaurant after reading other reviews online. This place does indeed have the BEST French Onion soup EVER MADE. I normally don't like French Onion soup, but my partner ordered some and I ended up eating most of it. I wanted to lick the bowl, seriously. The rest of the meal was good, however, a couple was...

Family run, real Italian Food, great atmosphere. We had a table for six in a semi private alcove. Lola takes pride in her kitchen and her family recipes. I've been to Italy, and this tasted like Italy. Try it you will like it

We had a great meal and nice dining experience. It's a small place so you may have to wait, but the food was excellent. Lola made time to meet us and tell us about her restaurant. We are anxious to go back.

My partner is Sicilian and considers this one of his favorite Italian restaurants in Columbus. They have a very large menu and some seasonal entrees, but each one we've had has been outstanding. They treat you like family there and are very welcoming.

Great hidden gem in Gahanna. Great Italian food in a very small corner restaurant. Fun atmosphere with getting to interact with the owners.

Filled with personality and uniqueness. Everything we tried was delicious, Lola was the best part of the night. Servers were lovely. Just like eating in Italy or France, LOVED IT!
