My father, sister-in-law and I went to lunch here some time ago, but the meal really sticks out in my mind as being unusually good. It was not long after it opened and it was hard to get seats at any time of day. We all shared a pizza, (I don't remember which one, but it was divine) and all... More

We visited for the first time on Sunday. Service was great, clear communication, quick delivery and attentive servers. The roasted cauliflower was excellent. We enjoyed the Korean BBQ, Hawaii Pie-O, and the Xerxes GF. All of the pizzas had excellent flavor. GF crust was crisp and tasty, would def. recommend the Xerxes pie. Love the photo booth and we had... More

You may have seen it on The Foodnetwork's Diners Drive IN's and Dives and thought it would be worth trying and you would be right! This is one of the best pizza places around and that's saying something from a Chicago native. The sausage is just spicy enough, the pepperoni uncured and perfect, the cheese high quality and the crust,... More

Pizzas baked in wood fired oven always taste great. I like their good thin crust. I've been there three times and tried 5 different pizzas. The ingredients are always good, fresh and delicious. Never over seasoned. Service is always friendly and warm. I particularly like their mismatched plates - totally adds to the homely atmosphere.

Great atmosphere with the huge copper pizza oven especially on a winter night, usually grab a seat at the bar. We always start with the beat and arugula salad and follow with sausage and mushroom pizza. Also, I am very fond of the Sweet Italian, albeit a bit spicy for my wife. Enjoy!

Great pizza and atmosphere. Be prepared for a long wait if you have more than 2 people and you are visiting at a peak time.

One of the BEST pizzerias in the Twin Cities! =The wood fire oven really adds to the flavor and speed of your order. More than just great old stand-byes, Pizzeria Lola features unique pies like Korean BBQ and Lady Zaza. Be prepared to wait for a table. The interior has a fun, funky vibe that can be a little crowded... More
