Gourmet wood oven pizza with fabulous crust and very interesting flavor combinations located in a primarily residential south Minneapolis neighborhood. There is often a wait because it is a relatively small venue. In summer this is no hardship, but winter gets tougher. They do have kid friendly options for pizzas, but with numerous beer and wine options it is a... More

Great pizza and nice place to have a fun dinner. They do not take reservation FYI weekends it's usually super busy. I would recommend going Mon-Thursday to avoid a long wait for a table. If you do decide to go during the weekend you can have a drink at the bar area while you wait for your table.

Obviously, pizza is arguably one of the best in the city. Have tried several, just spot on. Have also enjoyed some of the appetizers and we never leave without the vanilla soft serve with the olive oil and fleur de sel. Time your visit if you want to be seated immediately, but would be worth any wait! Also very family... More

Went here with girlfriends for lunch. We split two appetizers and pizzas. Then we decided we could not pass up the ice cream. Olive oil ice cream? YAAAAAAS. SAVE ROOM FOR ICE CREAM. Split it if you must, but get ice cream. Fun staff and a great photo booth round out this Pizzeria Lola gem!

Love Lola! Never disappointed. Boise pizza is the bomb! Be prepared to wait for a table unless you go at odd hours (of which there aren't many). Takeout is a good option too!

As seen on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, Lola's is an unusual pizza restaurant. Traditional toppings and combos are available, but it is the unique Korean barbeque type pizzas that set this place apart. Wood fired in a one of a kind copper clad oven which is the restaurant 's centerpiece, the crust is crispy and delicious. For those with the... More

This is a really good wood fired pizza restaurant. The prices are a little higher, but well worth it.

Awesome pizza, great small local place with a really cool copper over in middle. I really enjoyed the chewy crust that was charred to perfection! I also an appetizer of roasted Brussel Sprouts that I wasn't sure I'd like, but they were great!

Thank jwillie70
