We saw this recently on Diners Drive Ins and Dives and thought we had to go visit! One a last minute whim we called some friends up and 10 of us went. We arrived around 5:40 on a Saturday evening and the wait was an hour or so. No problem, we expected it. We said we were fine with sitting... More

This is not a typical pizza joint. Very eclectic variety of pizza's. Only one size but that is why you order more than one to sample different ones. Large copper oven (called Lola after owner's dog) in the center of the room that serves as a focal point which divides the kitchen from dining area. Good beer selection. There can... More

Everything at Pizzeria Lola is top notch. The pizzas are amazing, as are the appetizers and desserts. Thier beer and wine selection is nice. The atmosphere is fun and eclectic, and the host and wait staff are great. I'd recommend this to any pizza lover - I do not believe you could ever walk away disappointed.

After an hour wait for a table we finally had the opportunity to try what the hype was all about. To start we had the meatballs for an appetizer they where good but nothing memorable. On to the pizza we had the Hawaii Pie O and the Korean BBQ both were spot on fantastic. If I had to choose between... More

This is a quaint little pizza shop. We had the meatball appetizer and it was delicious. We also had the My Sharoni pizza. Only size pizzas they make is 12 inch (6 slices). The pizza was just right. Great flavor and the crust is superb. Will come back for more.

I've come here a couple times for lunch and did not have to wait to be seated. Though, the pizza is so good I would not mind a wait. I came back here after having the Korean BBQ pizza - the first time I had that, it was all I could dream about until my next trip to Minneapolis. The... More

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

I can't believe all the great reviews for this place. Just trendy crap. Little taste from odd ingredients. Whatever. Some folks just follow the crowd. Go to Pizza Luce for great Pizza (any location but Hopkins).
