Description: The truth is, you can get pizza and pasta lots of places these days. We know that, that’s why our mission is to become your favorite restaurant! So how do we do that? With Gourmet Pizza, Pasta, World Famous House Salad and legendary service! The atmosphere is unpretentious, fun and “Lake Casual” so please, don’t violate our dress code. And oh by the way, Gourmet refers to our fresh ingredients, secret hand-crafted recipes and the love we put into every dish, not the price… Our pizza is thin crust with dough made from scratch. (Hand-tossed available at the Osage Beach location) Only the finest meats, cheeses and freshest vegetables adorn the top. Since most of the pasta recipes originate from “The Hill” area of St. Louis you can expect to find many regional favorites like, Toasted Ravioli, Baked Mostaccioli, Cannelloni con Bianco and Lasagna as well as several house specialty pastas. But, if there is one stand-out item on the menu it has to be the House Salad. Cold, crisp and fresh, a blend of Iceberg and Romaine lettuce, diced red peppers, green onions and provel cheese tossed in a red wine vinegar based creamy Italian dressing and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Enjoy outside dining with a beautiful view of the lake at the Lake Ozark location, only 2 miles west of Bagnell Dam Blvd., on Horseshoe Bend Pkwy., or enjoy the Big Game at the Osage Beach location across the street from Dierberg’s at the west entrance to the Outlet Mall. Happy Hour is Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m., with great drink specials and half price appetizers.

I ate at Lil Rizzos with a group of friends and was rather disappointed. The food was ok but felt the prices were high for what you got. I had the toasted ravioli appetizer. I think there were maybe 8 rather small ravioli and it was $7.95. Thought that was rather high. There is lots of seating but it got rather loud which made it hard to visit. Our server Christina did a good job. I know it's hard to serve a big table and she pretty much stayed on top of things. It would be very expensive to take a family here to eat.

My husband and I moved to Lake of the Ozarks from St. Louis four years ago and have tried every restaurant at the Lake, but L'l Rizzo's is HANDS-DOWN our favorite. The food is WONDERFUL, the service OUTSTANDING (particularly Chloe and Jessica, waitresses in the bar, and Lily, one of the best hostesses I've ever seen). We bring ALL of our out-of-town company to L'l Rizzo's because we know it will be OUTSTANDING!

We came in with a large family and everyone left happy with leftovers. Good food, casual atmosphere and friendly staff. Special was seafood cannelloni and it great. Thank you for a good time.

We built our own pizza - great flavor!!! We had a thin crust and there was a nice crunch to the edge of the pizza. We’ll be back!
