I discovered Lola's a few years back, and although I hadn't been in a while, I can only say that this place has consistently been my favorite local Italian restaurant. Owners Lola and Joe are usually around and are so friendly. Patrons are all 'family'. :) What a wonderful community experience.. and the food-- well it's awesome!

What an amazing experience I had when I recently visited this well respected and talked about Itallian Restaurant! The staff was efficient and appeared happy. The food was exceptional. However, the owner came to our table and when he found out that I had recently visited his beloved country of Italy, we had an amazing time sharing notes. Everything from... More

Lola seems to know everybody who enters the door! That tells you this place is very well liked to say the least. Husband Joe isn't around very much any longer but still has an influence in the recipe's that come out of the kitchen. The dishes are pretty authentic to the region of Italy from where Joe was born so... More

We love Lola's. We live about an hour away so we don't get here as often as we'd like. Food and service are always outstanding. The best Italian wedding soup ever! Nothing super fancy or pretentious, just great tasting, authentic food.Love the ravioli, any seafood dish and eggplant parm. Staff is great and Lola herself is wonderful. You can tell... More

Think the reviews are too good to be true? Not this time. A small strip mall in the midwest is transformed to a mom and pop trattoria on a Roman street. Go with the specials or ask Lola what you should have and she'll tell you and you will be happy.

Four of us arrived early on a Friday evening an were promptly seated. Arriving later one should expect a wait. Each of us had a different selection for the well priced menu and could not say enough about how much we enjoyed the food. The portions, particularly for desert, were large and good value. We now have another favorite restaurant... More

I come to Columbus 3-4 times a year and stopping by to have a home cooked Italian meal and great conversation with Lola is a must. Outstanding pasta and amazing deserts is the standard fair. Thank you Lola for the best Italian food in Columbus. Wish you would move to Texas!!!

Hubby and I needed some red sauce! We ordered the standard spaghetti and meatballs. It was anything but standard. The sauce had kick to it and the meatballs, consisting of beef, veal and pork were tender without being mushy. We also enjoyed the mixed green salad with fresh caramelized pears, candied walnuts, dried cranberries and Gorgonzola cheese. We saved room... More
