Don't miss a chance to experience this restaurant. Lola is a wonderful host. The food is amazing. The tiramisu is house made by Lola herself. This is my favorite dessert I have had it all over and Lola's tiramisu is by far the best ever bar none. Can't wait to come back so next time we can meet... read more

The bread and marinara are delicious. I didn't care for the Italian Wedding Soup, never send anything back to Lola. She was very rude and disrespectful. She confronted me in front of the whole restaurant.

Lola & Guiseppe's is not to be missed. Each dish is lovingly prepared by the outstanding kitchen staff as if you are a long-lost relative who has just returned and needs to be richly nourished. The onion soup brings crowds in from hundreds of miles. The chicken marsala is to die for: each is drenched (according to Lola) in a... More

I am Italian and I know good Italian food! This place has authentic Italian food full of flavor. And don't get me started on the desserts!

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. Everything... More

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.
