Happy Rome-ance Awareness Month!

August is National Romance Awareness Month, and what better way to spend a part of this month than by enjoy the best Italian at the Lake of the Ozarks! Italian food is often considered an especially romantic meal, and couldn't agree more. Our venues have the right mood lighting, and our 2nd location on Horseshoe bend has a beautiful view of the Lake to help improve the romantic mood. Our menu has SO many delicious meals to choose from, so we're going to help you out and pick five of our favorite, romantic meals!

Spaghetti & Meatballs

Our delicious spaghetti and meatballs are smothered in in our chunky meat sauce, and are sure to induce romance! Maybe it's because we automatically start thinking about the Lady & the Tramp, or because a lot of romantic movies feature spaghetti. Either way, our spaghetti will make the perfect meal for your romantic evening!


Our homemade lasagna is layered with pasta, ricotta cheese, meat sauce, Italian sausage and a two cheese blend. Topped with more meat sauce and and delicious blend of melted cheese. When you're looking for romance, our lasagna is the place to start! Nothing says "I love you", more than layers of cheesy goodness.

Macho Meat Pizza

Our pizzas are a specialty, in fact, we have the best pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks! Between the pepperoni, bacon, hamburger, Canadian bacon and sausage, we think you'll find this pizza to be a perfect start to a romantic evening. Especially for a couple who is more down to earth. Pair this pizza with a delicious beer from our tap, and you are certain to find romance just around the corner!


Our mannicotti is a rolled noodle stuffed with ricotta cheese and served in a creamy red sauce. This meal will be romantic, if only for the fact that it is served at a lot of weddings. If you had mannicotti at your wedding, then nothing will stir more romance than having it again!

Roasted Garlic Chicken Capellini

You just can't go wrong with our delicious strips of chicken breast marinated in olive oil with mushrooms, tomatoes, green onions, chopped garlic, and angle hair pasta. This meal is classic and flavorful, though you might want to carry gum to rid yourself of the garlic breath afterwords.

We look forward to seeing you here for your next romantic dinner. Between our delicious menu, and our great selection of wine you will find our restaurant to be a great place to initiate romance. Li'l Rizzo's has been providing delicious Italian food to the Lake for over 30 years. We specialize in quality food and great service, and we're not just a great romantic get-a-way, but a great family friendly restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks! Stop in a visit us this weekend for your greatest Rome-mantic meal!
