Great service, great pizza...very original choices. We had one with speck and asparagus...fantastic. Plus the photo booth in back is a cool touch.

“The perfect lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We went here for lunch on a Friday. It was very busy but we luckily did get a table. We shared a meat & cheese platter for an appetizer. Everything on it was great - loved the spicy mustard with the meats! We ordered two pizzas, one was a special with asparagus on it, it was tasty but a bit on the sweet side. We also ordered a more traditional pizza with meats and veggies on it. I like that the crust was done nicely with no burnt flavor (like you get at other fire grilled pizza places like Punch). We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back.

“Awesome kimchi pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We saw this restaurant on Food network and decided to go visit. We had Lady za-za (kimchi pizza) and Korean BBQ. They were fantastic! Lady za-za can be very spicy for some people. If you remove sliced green peppers, it is less spicy. Korean BBQ was very good - not spicy. Awesome pizzas. I would love to come back and try other pizzas.

It is in the middle of residential area. We thought maybe we were lost on the way there, but GPS was right.

“Unique, fresh flavorful pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We were intrigued and eager to try Pizzeria Lola after seeing the Diners/Drive-Ins/Dives episode some time ago. Pizzeria Lola is really not a diner, or a drive in... and certainly not a dive. We shared a weekly special pizza, which had sliced asparagus, prosciuttio, and a honey truffle oil...it was absolutley to die for! We both especially loved the thin, crispy, wood fired oven crust. This is a slice of pizza that you can pick up and the whole piece stays up... no droopy, sloppy crust.
We had pistachio soft-serve for dessert...which was also very, very tasty. We will definitely go back to try other interesting looking menu items. A fun, happy place with lots of atmosophere, really good food, and great service. Outside of the dining room being quite loud... when it got full, it was a little tough to carry on a conversation...what else could you want?

“Fun lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We heard great things about Pizzeria Lola, 5 sisters, mother and aunt met here for lunch.
We all tried different pizza, their spring special was the best with thin sliced asparagus.
Our waiter was great and did a great job putting up with 7 crazy ladies!
Nice wine choices, only down side they didn't have outdoor seating for us and it was a gorgeous day.
