You know you are in for good food when the menu is limited because they make the pizza sooo well. They make their pizza in a copper oven, one of only two in the U.S. I believe. The pizza dough was tender and chewy and the ingredients were top notch. My only problem was deciding which delish combination I wanted... More

When we can get it (the place is very popular), love sitting at the bar by the oven, watching the staff make these remarkable pizzas. My favorite is The Forager, but I've tried several styles and they're all delectable. One style has kimchi, weird, but it works. Another with short ribs, again, it works. Also serves limited number of craft... More

A small restaurant that has been visited by the food network. Everything we ate was wonderful! They make their own sausage and pepperoni, etc. Very fun!

We have eaten at Pizzeria Lola several times. I have to tell you this is the best pizza I have ever had. It tastes exactly like the pizza we had while on vacation in Rome. This is pizza you will crave for days after you leave this restaurant. They have such unique toppings to have on your pizza you will... More

Amazing. Always the greatest staff, yummiest pizza. So great to get Mexican coca-cola with pizza-nothing better! We go 1-2 times every time we're in the cities! Love!!

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
