We were visiting from out of town and saw good reviews of this place so we decided to go there. It opens at 5:00 so I called to make reservations but was told they didn't take them. We arrived about 4:45 and there was a line outside (it was snowing) and as soon as it opened at 5:00 it was... More

Small and cozy, busy but not too loud, this traditional menu is the best in town if you want the classics; spaghetti and meatballs, exceptional eggplant parmesan, house-made pastas and soups, fresh and generous portions. Tiramisu is large enough for 4. Lola and Guiseppe still run the place and can often be heard arguing in the kitchen. Ah, la Familia.

This is a small restaurant, only about 8-10 tables, but if you time it right, you won't have a long wait. We were lucky and got right in but the whole time we were eating, there was a line. The food was wonderful and the service good for as busy as they were. This was our first visit be we'd... More

We recently ate at this restaurant while visiting friends in Gahanna. The atmosphere was great! It was very home-style and reminds one of eating in their Italian Grandmother's kitchen. Service was very good! Our waitress was friendly and very efficient! The food was also very good! I had the chicken parm with spaghetti and asparagus. My wife had the special... More

Small and somewhat difficult to find, but food was wonderful. Entire staff made us feel welcome and Lola personally greets each customer. Love the rainbow shoes!!! The carrot cake was AMAZING!!! and entrees were large and delicious.

In town to visit our son at OSU we were looking for a good place to eat. Lola and Giuseppe's was a great find! The welcoming atmosphere was our first clue that we made a smart choice. We tried the house salad, a large was big enough to share, eggplant Parmesan and the chicken Parmesan and the special dish of... More

We traveled to Columbus for the evening and found Lola's from Trip Advisor reviews. I'm so glad we did! The food was fabulous! I had lobster and shrimp ravioli and it was marvelous. I also had the Venitician salad and it was great! The bacon and figs on the salad with maple dressing was delicious. I highly recommend this friendly... More

Nice and small authentic Italian trattoria. Food was very good (meat lasagna and spaghetti & meatballs). Lola herself greeted us enthusiastically. Table service was a bit slow as they were quite busy on a Saturday night but weren't in a hurry. I'd be happy to return!

Honestly felt like I was at my grandparents for a home cooked meal. The service was exceptional. The experience special. Treat yourself and... More

What can you say about this hidden, hole-in-the-wall MARVELOUS restaurant. We dined on a warm August evening and found this gem to be just what we needed. Authentic. nothing pretentious about Lola's. The decor is right out of Grandma's living room. But, you don't go to a restaurant to look at the decor, you go for the food. and lola's... More
