This is some of the best pizza I have had. Wonderful crust with inventive toppings. They also have some classic fair for less adventurous eaters.

I love this place. Best pizza in town. Their specialty pizzas are great as well. The best part is they serve Lambrusco by the glass, an acquired taste. It can get busy but they do accept reservations and it’d be wise to make one. Service...More

A Korean immigrant, inspired by the pure love of food, joy and her mother’s own delicious cooking, quits her day job, opens an artisan pizza pie place and names it after her dog. There’s no need to be overly patriotic here, but is there anything more American than that? Yep, sometimes dreams do come true. Welcome to Pizzeria Lola where we serve wood fired pizzas, shareable small plates, warm chocolate chip cookies, soft serve ice cream, wine, beer and fun! Don't forget to take a trip to our photobooth when you visit.
