Best italian food

All i can say is i wish Lola would move to San Francisco where I live. Amazing food, hospitality from Lola and Shannon our server, Chef Bryon and a charming location. The onion soup was the best I've ever had. My trout was fresh and flavorful. The garlic bread warm with a lot of buttery garlic. And... read more

I was looking for an Italian restaurant that wasn't part of a chain and my GPS led me to this gem. It's nestled in a small shopping center, but what a treat it was. Lola's is tastefully decorated and has an extremely homey feel. It was very clean and has an intimate setting. I was greeted promptly by Shannon who... More

I note two previous reviews that described this as a "mom n' pop" place (true) and "best Italian food in Gahanna" (which is probably true as well, but isn't saying much). I really wanted to like this place a lot. The owners/staff are very nice and attentive, and Gahanna (the entire NE side, really) could use a unpretentious, reasonably priced... More

Went to this restaurant with my girlfriends. Best Italian I have had in a long time. The restaurant was quaint and homey, you really felt like you were being made a home cooked Italian meal. The Deserts were amazing. I have the Tiramisu, best I've ever had! Loved the atmosphere, the food, and the owner. It was a little pricey,... More

We love coming here and wanted 2 other couples to experience it! I think the problem was we got there at 8 PM on a Saturday night thinking that would be after the crowds. By the time we got seated at 8:40 and got our food around 9:15 picking were slim for dessert. They ran out of asparagus and gave... More

Three of us had dinner at Lola and Guiseppe's Trattoria recently. It was a business dinner so we asked for a table in the back area, and it was great. Some new salads and seafood on the menu; tried those. Excellent. The pasta is really great and lots of very good garlic bread to eat before and during the meal.... More

We love Lolas italian onion soup! I always get whatever fish is her special…cannot go wrong! Great wine selection and desserts are to die for! He always gets a bowl of rigatoni or her lasagna. Consistently homey and relaxing to eat there. Small, but cozy. We are devotees!

A nice little local family restaurant. I would not have found it but for the TA reviews. It lives up to the reviews. The soups, Italian Wedding and the Onion Soup, were outstanding. One of the best Onion Soups, ever! I had the Braised Beef Canneloni - outstanding winter comfort food. I will definitely come back the next time I... More
