“Great Food, But You Pay For It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Very craetive pizzas and excellent food, but the prices are very expensive for a pizza place. Drinks seem to be the worst with even local beers over $5 a glass and average wines over $8 a glass.
We would still go again and share one appetizer and pizza. Try it at least once and watch the prices.

“Simple Italian cuisine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

If you are a thin crust pizza lover then this is the place for you. Fresh ingredients and interesting topping combinations were a hit. Copper wood fire pizza oven adds to the ambience. Checkout the photo booth and add your pics to the wall.

Featured on Dinners, Drive-Inns and Dives explains the crowds bit was well worth the wait.

“Perfect lunch!”

Excellent thin crust pizza, wonderful variety of toppings. We enjoyed delicious roasted cauliflower, crisp Caesar salad with hearts of palm, pizza with foraging mushrooms & truffle oil. Attentive service. Nice casual patio.

“Exceptional everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Four in our party. Everyone got different pizza. Mysharoni, Hawaii Pie O, Korean BBQ and Xerxes. I sampled all four and found them to be exceptional. Have to say this is best wood fired pizza places I've visited. Stay was friendly and welcoming. Will definitely plan to eat here again when in the area.

“friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

A friend recommended I go to Pizzaria Lola on my trip to the MN area. I had a speciality pizza and my waitress was extra nice and even brought me a mini ice cream to try. I usually feel awkward eating alone but the pizza was so yummy and service wonderful it was a delight. I took 1/2 of my pizza to my husband who was working in the area . He doesn't care for thin crust pizza and HE even loved it. Wish they would come to Ca.
