History of Li'l Rizzo'sLi'l Rizzo's has been located in the Lake area for almost 30 years. In that time, we had our first location on the corner of Hwy 54 and KK. In 1990, Carol Borders and her daughter, Linda, opened the second LI'l Rizzo's location on State Rad HH. In 1997, Carol and her son Bill opened the third Li'l Rizzo's adjacent to the Osage Beach Premium Factory Outlets in July. The original location was closed in 1991. There are two amazing locations now by the outlet mall, and on HH, both serving up the best Italian at the Lake of the Ozarks.
About Li'l Rizzo'sThe 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. Every Tuesday the award winning wings are only $0.45 each and Thursday is the $8, 5 topping pizza special.
We are proud to continue serving the Lake area with our delicious food and fantastic service. If you're local, we look forward to making memories with you all year long, but to the guests to vacation with us at the Lake, we welcome you! Come out for happy hour and enjoy the half price appetizers and drink specials, or join us for lunch or dinner any day. We'd love to see you
