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.

The food was very good, would definitely come back. Servers were nice, but on the slow side. It’s BYOB which is nice.

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.

The food is very good and the service is always excellent. They have a very nice collection of dishes and a good mix of fish and meat. They had outside dinning and still using it. I hope they keep this for next year. This is a BYOB

The service was exceptional and the food wonderful also! We had the Tilapia with shrimp and Vodka Rigatoni. The soups were delicious and I truly enjoyed the special salad with pineapple, strawberries and goat cheese. Going back soon! Try this place. It’s a real find.

I had the Pasta Purses--delicious! The service was a little off--one of us never got her Diet Coke, and the dessert was very late in arriving. Otherwise, everything was fine.

After five visits [parties of 4, 6 and 8] during the last few months, my friends and I have not been disappointed. Consistently outstanding service and food. But Lola’s signage is too small to see given its proximity to its driveway. For newcomers, I tell my friends to slow down upon seeing the Puppy Palace sign.

Our experience here was great. We typically go to another Italian restaurant in the same town, but thought we would try this one out, and it great. Food was fantastic. We will definitely be coming back. Noise level is especially important to me, because Id like to carry on a conversation, and it was perfect.

I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly. I definitely will return to try more dishes. The mushroom risotto was very good as well as the chicken parm. All the food was very flavorful.

The food never disappoints at Lola's. We were lucky to be seated in the quieter area of the restaurant. The restaurant is more of an open space so a romantic atmosphere it is not. Our waiter was so engaging and knew the menu.

The Fried Calamari is the best we’ve had. Lightly fried. Perfect. Vodka Rigatoni was delicious, the best around! Service was impressive. Very attentive staff. Menu prices very reasonable for the excellent quality of from scratch cuisine.
