Small menu but amazing pizza. Fun combinations or build your own. Small parking lot but lots of street parking and a outside patio.

We went here as Andrew Zimmern recommends it & we left feeling let down. The pizza is good but nothing you can’t get at any 2000 degree pizza place. The menu is small but you’ll find something for everyone. Rhombus Pizza in Grand Forks, ND...More

I have tried many of the top-rated restaurants in Minneapolis but have always skipped this one because it's "just" pizza. But, we finally HAD to try it to see what the hype was all about. We really liked our pizza choices (Korean BBQ and Boise),...More

I've eaten pizza in NYC. I've eaten New York pizza in Minneapolis. This isn't NY pizza...and it isn't Minneapolis.

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.
