First let me say the food was EXCELLENT. But when we got there, there was a huge banquet full of muddled schoolers in the main dining room. We couldn’t even talk it was SO loud. That aside, the only had one server worked the entire event plus serving tables. I felt bad for her, but she did do a fantastic job given the circumstances. What I did not like was how long it took to get our food. Over an hour. For two dinners. Tables that were seated after us were served and done before we even got our dinner. The waitress kept apologizing but it was a little crazy to order at 5:45 and not start eating until close to 7:00. All in all, I’ll give this place another shot but their first impression wasn’t that great

Our server was excellent. Food portions were large and the good was excellent. Although the menu provided at the table was small, our server informed us they could make anything we'd like from the takeout menu.

Black Friday lunch was the first time I've come in since the pandemic. It was a quiet lunch and the food was very good; soup, Caesar salad, and a crab and lobster ravioli. The food is a good quality at, I believe, a very good price. If I lived in this area, I would definitely dine here a couple of times a month (or more)!

The food was outstanding! My friends both got the risotto seafood special and said it was the best risotto they ever had! Our food was amazing! The service was fabulous! Attentive but not too attentive. It was a little noisy but worth it! I had never been. A new favorite on our list!

Way to many customers for the limited staff to handle. No silverware / napkins on table when we got there. Had to ask 3 times to get them. VERY noisy inside. Food was only fair at best. Not a good experience. Wait staff was English Challenged. Very happy they were working but they need to understand English.

Food and service was very good. Took a while to get our meal, but delicious. Only complaint, I ordered cheesy garlic bread and it seemed as though they never made it before. Not Good at all. Cheese wasn't even melted.

Diana our server was terrific!!! At our table we ordered four different entrees—a steak, a salmon, a pasta and a chicken. All fabulous! We had never been here before but we will be back. And I judge a place by the coffee they serve. Fresh and delicious at 8 pm!!! Thank you!!!

What a great surprise! We were unexpectedly in this area and went to Lola for a late afternoon lunch/early dinner in this warm comfy restaurant. We started with mussels in a Fra Diavelo sauce that was perfectly spiced. Warm crusty bread soaked up the delicious sauce.
Their striped bass special was incredible as well as the veal portobello. And the vodka sauce on the gluten-free pasta could not have been better. (That pasta is often poorly cooked in other restaurants, but here it was absolutely perfect). The flaming fruit dessert finished off this delightful meal. I will DEFINITELY be back for more of chef Marco’s creations!

Food was delicious. We had the cowboy steak and the lobster risotto. Both very good! Place could use some updating. One side is a pizzeria the other a restaurant. Would like to try pizza next time.

Baby arugula salad was amazing. I had the risotto special. Beef was a bit tough. Risotto had mushrooms in it which I'm not a fan of. I would like to go back to try a different dish. For lunch, I thought it was a bit pricey. Service was excellent, so I'd give it another try.

Really enjoyed Lola's...food was very good. My husband said it was the best veal parmesan that he had in a long time. Food prep was great...I had the pasta with clams in white sauce. Loved it! It's BYOB and the prices were reasonable. Service was good. Covid 19 protocols seemed to be followed.
We even had dessert...delish!
Parking was easy. Highly recommend.

Ordered take out from there and it was good. (I ordered the chicken parm sub and it wasn’t good but everyone else liked their food). Went to eat at the restaurant for dinner in April 2021. There was ONLY one waiter for 7/8 tables. Everything took so long! For appetizer, we ordered a flatbread with prosciutto and figs and we did not like it. White pizza was a little too salty. The gnocchi was delicious! Ordered the chocolate lava cake for dessert and it was mediocre.

Great find - wonderful restaurant with a great menu. There were 4 people in our party and everyone enjoyed their lunch. The salads were delicious as well as the chicken Milanese and eggplant rollatini. The waiters were so friendly and the service was excellent. We don't live in the area but will definitely go back next time we're near there.

Food was good and portions were ample. Salad was particularly good. Had mussels and sausage appetizer, also good., Ambience is strange, almost seedy. Definitely a neighborhood place and the neighborhood is rural central NJ.

We dined at Lola’s years ago in the prior location and enjoyed it. This was our first time at their newer location and it totally lacked a good atmosphere. Lights were really bright and I think the walls were bare. However, the food was wonderful and at a fair price point. Our waitress, Myra, was very busy serving all tables (I assume due to Covid), but she was also attentive. We would definitely return but not for date night.

We love this place! It's truly a hidden gem. It's tucked away, quiet and the food is amazing. They have the BEST fried Calamari. It's so delicious. The waiter is always so nice, patient and attentive. They have several Italian food choices. Definitely take your friends and family here. They give an abundance of Italian style food.
