If your party is larger than 2, expect to wait and have parties of 2 that came after you to be sat first. Next, if your whole party is not present, you may not be sat; or if you are, you will not be allowed to order-this includes appetizers. Just an FYI, there is not a kids menu, and we... More

The wine list is simple and the menu straight forward..I had the chicken... More

I come to Columbus a few times a year - and always try and make it to Lola and Giuseppe's. Outstanding food and amazing deserts. Lola is a great hostess and makes you feel at home. Great job! See you next time!

Authentic Italian restaurant, highly recommend. Amazing/Lasagna dinner, salad and a glass of Chianti. Large portions. Atmosphere is like little Italy, the owner and her employees outrageous customer service. Definitely will be back!

Wow!!! What a great experience. Lola was wonderful and we had some of the best Italian food we have ever eaten. Meatballs and Lasagna were so good!! Limoncello was out of this world. Small and cozy. We will be back.

My teenage daughter and I chose this for the classic Italian. We started with the spinach and artichoke dip ... It was so exceptional I'm not sure I can ever eat it anywhere else again - big chunks of artichoke, creamy texture and taste and capped off with parmesan. We split the meat lasagna which was also excellent - the... More

This is the second year myself and friends in the log home industry have attended a show in Columbus OH. Last year we looked at the reviews and decided Lola's was for us. Like the sign in the entry states "Enter as strangers and leave as friends" This could not be more true! This is a one of a kind... More

Several months ago, my husband and I went to Lola's & Giuseppe's Trattoria for dinner (we had been long-time customers and were dressed nicely). We waited in line to be seated as there was only one group of 3 people ahead of us and no one else was waiting in line after us. Neither Lola and her servers greeted any... More

We were lucky enough to find room for our party of 8 on New Year's Eve at this wonderful hidden secret ( the Buckeyes were playing and no one goes out when that is happening). Everyone enjoyed their entries! I had the sampler dish which was great. My husband had the lasagna which he loved. It was huge that he... More

Visited Lola's for an informal business dinner for two and so glad I did. The place is small so we had to wait 15 min or so for a table to open up. The service was great and the food was amazing. We had the caprese salad and the guiseppe's salad both were fantastic. Side size was perfect for my... More
