This is a pizza joint with attitude. The food is good but overpriced for embellished dough. Always crowded and noisy. For my money, not worth the wait.

Good pizza and original Korean style pizza. I liked it since it was original but a bit spicy for my kids and wife. Nice neighborhood type of place with good service but much have had better.

We enjoyed eating at Pizzeria Lola! The pizzas were yummy, the service was good, and the atmosphere was comfortable. The pizzas are very unique. If you are looking for your traditional type of pizza then this place isn’t for you.

This is an “ off the beaten path” neighborhood pizzeria… With an authentic wood-burning pizza oven from France. The flavor was absolutely amazing and the service was great...

Open welcoming environment. Easy access and a short walk from nicolette mall. Staff is awesome, service excellent and food is great. This is not a commercial for the establishment. It is simply my experience. Get out and see for yourself. D

A Korean immigrant, inspired by the pure love of food, joy and her mother’s own delicious cooking, quits her day job, opens an artisan pizza pie place and names it after her dog. There’s no need to be overly patriotic here, but is there anything more American than that? Yep, sometimes dreams do come true. Welcome to Pizzeria Lola where we serve wood fired pizzas, shareable small plates, warm chocolate chip cookies, soft serve ice cream, wine, beer and fun! Don't forget to take a trip to our photobooth when you visit.
