The Christmas season lasts from the beginning of December till January 6th for La Befana.

Li'l Rizzo's has a diverse menu full of the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks. This month we have some fabulous favorites on the menu, and we'd love for you to come in and try a few that we're craving!

Loaded Potato Skins
When you put potato's and bacon together, it just doesn't get much better! Then we top it off with scallion and melted cheese, and it got better. We LOVE these loaded potato skins and all of the flavors they hold. They make a wonderful appetizer to share...or just eat by yourself!
