Excellent food and a fun experience

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!

Lola welcomes all of her guests enthusiastically and serves them great food. This is not a fancy restaurant -- it's informal, as befits its small strip mall-type location -- but it consistently delivers good value and sends its diners home not only full, but happy. The few tables can fill up quickly, but it's worth the wait. Our tips: the... More

This restaurant was suggested by a local in the area and if he had not suggested it, we would not have given it a second look. It is a small Italian Trattoria tucked away in Gahanna, OH. It was obvious the majority of patrons were locals because Lola knew most by name. The food was exactly as I described above... More

On a prompt from a friend, we visited tonight for dinner. It was my Father-in-law's 90th birthday and we wanted somewhere special for him. We are NOT disappointed.They do not take reservations...do get there early. We ordered the Pasta Fritto for an appetizer. . a cheesy fried plateful that we devoured. The garlic bread was perfectly crunchy and seasoned. We... More

A touch of Italy for dinner. A very intimate setting with great food and a very friendly owner and staff. This is first class food at a very fair price. Lola is willing and able to take care of you and lift your spirits.

This was the best onion soup I have had anywhere. The food has always been great along with the service. Definitely will return!

We loved the wild salmon, and the salad we had. Service was good - small and can get loud in front room. Also, we never go in winter as the cold draft from the opening of the door is bad news, as they have no foyer. But for spring/summer a good choice if looking for imaginative healthy choices.
