After many years, Lola and Giuseppe are not longer the owners of this place. However, all the recipes are still followed to the perfection. The menu is restricted to few authentic Italian recipes (many times
less is better). The service is great. The price is reasonable. They do not take reservations so try to arrive early if you don’t want to wait. Enjoy!

Bread pudding. Not your typical or run of the mill bread pudding. If you like custard and hard sauce, you will believe you have gone to heaven. Worth going just for it. But I would not miss a bowl of this out of this world ( here is that heaven thing again) onion soup before having desert! Go. Try. Love.

We ate here on Saturday evening and it was pretty busy especially since it is a small restaurant. However, it was definitely worth the wait. The pasta fritto was a unique appetizer that I would definitely get again. Caesar salad dressing was homemade and delicious. All of our entrees were exceptional as well. We had bread pudding for dessert and the caramel sauce was to die for! Will definitely eat here again if I'm back in Columbus. Note: they do run out of certain items so if you want a particular dessert you might want to pre-order!

We recently ate dinner here to celebrate a couple of birthdays with a group of 7. Service was friendly, and a little slow, but this seems to be a characteristic of authentic Italian places so that everyone has time to relax and enjoy each other's company while eating (which we did). The food was quite tasty and portions were generous. Everyone was glad we chose Lola's and would definitely come again.

Thanks to TripAdvisor, I discovered this little restaurant tucked in to a corner of a small strip mall not far from our motel. It's adorable but small - has the feel of an Italian home - and everyone is so friendly. Sandy our server was dynamite! But most importantly, the food was beyond amazing!! I had Guiseppi's Sampler which was one of his homemade meatballs on a bed of spaghetti, a piece of his to-die-for lasagna, and a generous portion of eggplant Parmesan on rigatoni - all with his delectable homemade sauce. My son had the lobster ravioli with shrimp and he couldn't stop raving about it. We capped it off by sharing a piece of tiramisu that was out of this world. If you're in Columbus, you HAVE to try this restaurant - my only regret is we live in Maryland and don't have anything like this back home...
