We're HAPPY About Appetizers!

Appetizers are a wonderful way to start a meal, in fact, appetizer refers specifically to "building the appetite." At Li'l Rizzo's we serve nine of the best appetizers at the Lake of the Ozarks that help to build your appetite as you wait for the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks to be served to you. Here are a few fun facts about appetizers, and an introduction to the appetizers you love here at Li'l Rizzo's!

Appetizer Fun Facts

  • In China, appetizers are called lěng pán ("cold plate"), or qián cài ("before dish") in Mandarin.
  • Sometimes, appetizers are served with no meal afterward and this is the case with many receptions and cocktail party events.
  • Appetizers may be served at the table, as a part of the sit-down meal, or they may be served before sitting at the table.
  • What is the difference between an appetizer and an hors d'oeuvres? Hors d'oeuvres translates to "outside the meal" and is generally a one-bit item that is stationary or passed and served.
