Have eaten here many times and posted rave reviews. Small, family owned and run operation with outstanding home-cooked food. Lola usually greats customers at the door, runs the floor, bosses (nicely) Guiseppe (her husband, chef, and Limoncello maker) around and makes sure things are ship shape. The last few times we've been there, however, things have not run smoothly. Menu... More

Went to Lola & Guiseppe's on a date night without the kids, on a recommendation. Let me tell you, it's purely authentic Southern Italian fare! Check out the pics... never had anything like the Sicilian Onion Soup; the carmelized bacon and cream was amazing! The wife had the eggplant parmesan, which is cooked to order (they cut the eggplant after... More

The food was phenomenal . . . REAL Italian! Really cute place, friendly service, with awesome food. Prices were reasonable and in line with other places. Also in a really nice section of town with lots of places to visit and beautiful walking trails around.

We love the dining experience at Lola's. The food is always great. Last week we split the carrot cake for desert. What an outstanding way to finish a meal.

Best lasagna I have ever had! Everything is homemade. Very small and intimate, but worth the wait! You can't get Italian food anywhere else after trying this.

Food was great and it felt like you were eating at your favorite aunts house. They don't take reservations and the restaurant is small so be willing to wait a bit if it is busy... It is worth it. My only complaint was that it was loud in the restaurant making it hard to hear the people I was with... More

Authentic Italian of the highest quality. Four different meals served hot and fresh from the stove. Each meal was generous in portion and wonderfully flavorful. We had very tasty meatballs as an appetizer, the meatballs paired well with the complimentary garlic bread. The restaurant was very generous with the garlic bread. I had the Lola Salad which was fresh and... More

I really like the atmosphere, very eclectic but cozy! It's small so it gets crowded fast! I was impressed with the menu selections, had a hard time deciding but went with the veal marsala. My husband had veal saltimbocca (Chicken saltimbocca was the special but they made veal for him for a small increase), the kids had lasagna and spaghetti.... More
