Having pizza for a birthday party is almost as necessary as the cake, especially when it's the best pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks! The birthday boy or girl will love a specialty pizza from Li'l Rizzo's for their special day. Whether you're enjoying the day at home or you come in to visit us, there is no better way to celebrate a birthday than with pizza from Li’l Rizzo’s.

Got a Graduate? You Need Pizza!


Planning a party can be a bit stressful, especially when it is celebrating a milestone, like a graduating high school or college. Make it easy and let Li'l Rizzo's help you with the food. Teens and young adults love their pizza and it's a great way to celebrate their accomplishment and the start of the summer season. Not to mention, pizza is a hit with everyone! From veggie pizza to meat lovers, you can’t go wrong with serving pizza.

Watching a Sports Game? You Need Pizza!


Grab your friends and catch the game while enjoying a delicious slice of the best pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks. You and your buddies can watch all the action at Li'l Rizzo's in Osage Beach or you can pick up a couple pies and enjoy them at home.

Want to Show Your Employees That You Appreciate Them? You Need Pizza!

Do You Really Need a Reason to Eat Pizza? We Don’t Think So!


You don't need a reason to enjoy a pizza party with friends. Order a pie - or five - and invite your friends and family over for a night of fun. However, if you do need a reason, don't forget that Friday, May 19th is National Pizza Party Day.

The Best Pizza at the Lake

You can order online (or call us) and pick up your pizza to bring home! You can enjoy delicious specialty pizzas like the Seafood Pizza and the Macho Meat. However, you can also create your own pizza and top it with fresh vegetables, premium meats, and the finest cheeses. While we LOVE pizza, Li'l Rizzo's menu offers so much more.

An Italian Mother’s Day

Mamma Mia! Mother’s Day is just days away. In Italy, la mamma is the foundation of the home and is celebrated by her family all year round. However, on the second Sunday of May, mothers are showered with flowers, gifts, and poems for La Festa della Mamma. Whether your mother is Italian or just LOVES Italian food, Li'l Rizzo's has a few Mother's Day traditions so you can join in on the fun. If you don’t have plans yet, bring your mom into the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for a delicious meal! No cooking or dishes, what could be better? 


Mother’s Day Fun Facts


More people purchase fresh plants and flowers for Mother’s Day than for any other holiday – except Christmas/Hanukkah.

The National Retail Federation (NRF) estimates that in 2018 US consumers will spend $23.1 billion celebrating Mother’s Day. Shoppers will spend an average of $180 on Mom.

Approximately 65% of all greeting card sales occur within the last five days leading up to Mother’s Day.

In the U.S., the most phone calls made in one day take place on Mother's Day. 

Mother’s Day is usually the busiest day of the year for the restaurant industry – about 62% of Americans dine out.

The History of the Italian Mother's Day


While Mother's Day in the U.S. was recognized as a holiday in 1914, the first official Mother's Day celebration in Italy didn't take place until 1957. In the city of Assisi, Father Otello Migliosi, from the village of Tordibetto, promoted this special day for Mothers. He said it should be a day to celebrate women and their contribution to family and community life. It was so popular that the following year, a petition was presented to parliament and the second Sunday in May was declared officially as "La Festa della Mamma."


An Italian Mother's Day


While Mother's Day is a special holiday in Italy, it is not as commercialized as it is in the United States. In Italy, they tend to keep Mother’s Day very simple. It's a day for families to come together to enjoy each other's company and celebrate the person who made it all possible. Children bring fresh flowers (often roses) and gifts to their Mothers, much like they do here in America. They also write poesie (poems) as a way of showing appreciation. Families will often go out to eat for lunch or dinner to give mamma a day off from cooking and of course, dishes.

Spoil Your Mom This Sunday


Mom's do so much for us throughout the year, so make sure you spoil her this Mother's Day. If you're not able to spend the day with her, make sure you call her or send her send her a gift on her special day. If you are lucky enough to spend the day together, there are many great ways to spend Mother's Day at the Lake of the Ozarks, from a shopping spree to a spa day. Ensure Mom has a day off from cooking and dishes by bringing her to the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks!


Happy Mother's Day From Li’l Rizzo’s!


Li'l Rizzo's wants to wish all the Mom's out there a Happy Mother's Day. If you need a delicious place to eat and enjoy quality time with your Mom, the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has a table ready for you!
