We really enjoyed the pizza at Pizzeria Lola's. Each and every type of pizza is creative and delicious. If you like thin, crispy crust with fresh ingredients, you will like this place. The meatballs and sauce make for a delicious appetizer tool. It has a friendly, casual atmosphere. It is a great place to go with friends and family.

My husband and I visited Pizzeria Lola on a very busy Saturday evening last weekend. We knew that they didn't take reservations so we were prepared to wait to get in. As busy as the restaurant was, there was ample street parking in all directions. We arrived at 6:45pm and were told it would be an hour wait. After putting... More

Great pizza! We carried out as we were wanting to get back to our hotel. The sweet Italian was delicious but a little spicier than anticipated, probably not appropriate for toddlers as our daughter didn't like it and she loves Pizza. This is great pizza, not the best I've ever had, but would definitely order again when in the area.... More

Hands down the best restaurant in mpls. Do sit at the bar, first come first served. Plus the service at the bar is better. Everything is great just order what you feel like and if you like chocolate chip cookies you gotta try these ones.

I have been to Pizzeria Lola a half dozen times or so - and plan to go next week again. Every time the food is incredible! The service is great! But the pizza is over the top amazing! May I suggest the ZaZa, for mushroom pizza, the Sunnyside, and any of the others. Then - just get that one scoop... More

I wish I could tell people the pizza here is only marginal, or that the service isn't all that great so it would be easier to get in...but I can't!! Everything about this place is fantastic. The pizza? Amazing. The service? Wonderful. We've found that getting there on the early side (like 4:00-30) makes the wait less. It's worth getting... More

Although expensive, the quality of pizza and salads in this place is outstanding! They are very creative in their pizza options, and have a great wine/craft beer selection. We suggest sitting at the counter where you can watch them prepare and cook all that great food! Don't forget to order the home made soft serve, its lovely! Get there early... More

The pizza here is put of this world. A mix of Korean fusion and bright ideas combined with delicous crust and a fast baking wood fire oven. Great beer too! Hard to find a table sometimes. A MUST TRY for MPLS Pizza Lovers!

After seeing Pizzeria Lola on DDD we knew we had to try. We came from Wisconsin to see the Mall of America and make a few stops at restaurants we felt we had to try. We ate here on a Friday night and it was very busy. I think we arrived around 8pm and it was about a 45 minute... More

The ingredients they put together for the specific pizzas are amazing. We had a hard time choosing but picked the sweet Italian pizza and the spring mix salad. The salad was spot on with bits of bacon and nice pieces of blue cheese. The salads are big enough to share. Everything sounded so good, therefore we will be back. Next... More
