Suprisingly, Pretty Good Food, and Excellent Service
Lola is a great place for Italian eats. It is located at the brand new Terminus center next to the Flying Biscuit. It looks small from the outside but once you enter the interior will stun you. It is beautifully decorated with a lot of candles, modern decor, and has a killer bathroom area (you can?t say that about many public places!) They offer you a sampling of their sparkling wine on the house which is really sweet. We started off with antipasto including a soft cheese, sopressato salami, and prosciutto. The cheese should was served with a balsamic vinaigrette which added tart flavor. The prosciutto was absolutely decadent, it had a great flavor and was not too salty. We also got some crusty bread with a really good olive oil and spice spread melted into it. My boyfriend got the sausage pizza. It was a good size. If you like additional toppings then you will love the pizza. His pizza included some roasted red pepper and onion. I had the lasagna (Sunday?s are all you can eat lasagna night for $15 and includes a choice of house/ceasar salad). The salad was well made, just the right amount of flavor from the dressing and not overwhelming, and the croutons were also some of the best ever. The lasagna was not the best I have ever had, It was a little over spiced with flavors of fennel but I did enjoy that it had a ridiculous amount of gooey cheese, which is the best part of lasagna! I only wish it had more meat. And finally, the dessert was yummy! We got the tiramisu, chocolate, and coffee flavored gelatos (they let you choose 3 flavors). They were all wonderful. The service was wonderful. Every time you leave your seat they will take your cloth napkin and fold it back elegantly upon your return. The only cons are that the hostess was dressed quite unprofessionally for a classy place as this, and the music is very awkwardly out of place! They should definitely invest in a more appropriate play list for the atmosphere of the restaurant.
