Fuel Your Black Friday Shopping With Li'l Rizzo's

The second Thanksgiving is over, all the attention is turned towards December and the holiday season. Because of this, one of the busiest shopping days of the year takes place the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday is when most people choose to complete their holiday shopping. Most stores offer crazy deals and specials, so it makes sense that it’s one of the most popular days for holiday shopping. After spending Thanksgiving Day with your friends and family and eating lots of delicious food, you may find yourself gearing up to hit the stores on Black Friday. To make sure you get the best Black Friday shopping experience, Li’l Rizzo’s has a few tips for you. If you need some fuel to get you through all of your shopping, stop at the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. You know what they say, food is fuel.


Tips for Black Friday Shopping


Have A Game Plan
Make your list and check it twice, you don’t want to forget anyone. Black Friday ads have expanded beyond the traditional circulars. This is a great way to get an idea of what kind of deals will be available. Many stores also have their Black Friday deals online. There’s nothing better than doing your shopping in your pajamas from the comfort of your own home. Create a game plan of what stores you will go to and in what order. This will help keep you on track and out of all the craziness. Black Friday can be overwhelming, so having a list and a game plan ahead of time will help minimize the craziness and keep you within your budget.

Get An Early Start
Shopping is a great way to burn off some of the calories that are consumed on Thanksgiving – not that we’re counting. Many stores have begun to open up Thanksgiving night and have special early bird deals. These are great deals and should be taken advantage of. While shopping Thanksgiving night is starting to become more popular, this may be a great way to avoid some of the crazy crowds that take place on Friday. 

Take Breaks
Black Friday is an early morning shopping experience, but it’s also one that lasts all day long. And let’s be honest, shopping can be exhausting. When you’re out shopping all day, it’s important to take a few breaks and to make sure you are fueling yourself with some delicious food. For this, you need the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks. Luckily, Li’l Rizzo’s is located next to the Osage Beach Premium Outlet Mall. You won’t have to travel far for a delicious lunch or dinner to fuel your day of shopping.

Happy Shopping 


We hope these tips help you have a successful and stress-free Black Friday. If you are shopping for your friends and family and you aren’t sure what to get them, why not get them a Li’l Rizzo’s gift card! Who wouldn’t love a gift card to the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks? Right now, Li’l Rizzo’s is offering a buy one get one on gift cards.

Pizza Personalities

Everyone has their own favorite type of pizza. Whether you like plain cheese pizza or like to load it up with meat and vegetables, Li'l Rizzo's has you covered! Whether you’ve thought about it or not, your preferred pizza topping actually says something about your personality type. According to Medical Daily, “Eating preferences can be a doorway to your personality”. This makes sense because taste is so intricately connected to the central nervous system. The best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has done some research and has put together a list of what pizza toppings say about your personality. Check it out below and see how accurate it is for you.


Plain Cheese Pizza


Reliable, Steadfast, Concerned, Easy-Going, Non-Judgmental

If you enjoy a simple pizza, then it could mean you take pleasure in the simple things in life. What’s wrong with just cheese and sauce? Nothing! There’s no problem if you don’t want any toppings on your pizza. Your plain preference shows that you know how to stand your ground and you’re not afraid to stick to your guns. Liking plain cheese pizza doesn’t mean you’re predictable, it just makes you dependable.

Pepperoni Pizza


Caring, Uncomplicated, Fun, Outgoing, Trustworthy

Pepperoni is probably one of the most popular pizza toppings. If you’re a pepperoni fan, you are more than likely someone who cares deeply about your loved ones. Your friends and family may be drawn towards you because you don’t like “drama”. You also have a tendency to work hard and often times you don’t give yourself enough credit.

Veggie Pizza


Sensitive, Secretive, Surprising, Introverted, Idealistic

A lot of people love fresh vegetables, so it makes since to load your pizza with fresh veggies. A veggies lover may be sensitive, but not in a bad way. You have easy access to your emotions and there’s nothing wrong with that. You don’t necessarily tell the world what you’re feeling, sometimes you like to keep things inside. A veggie pizza lover also likes to look on the bright side of things and they’re always searching for the positives. You place great value on relationships and you are always there for your friends and family.

Hawaiian Pizza


Laid-Back, Self-Confident, Quirky, Courageous, Happy

Some people love the mix of sweet and savory on a Hawaiian pizza. This topping choice shows that you have a laid-back approach to life and you don’t get bogged down with worry or anxiety. You’re also comfortable with who you are as a person. As a Hawaiian pizza lover, you are achievement-oriented and you’re a natural leader. You’re always up for trying something new.

Meat Lovers Pizza


Brash, Proud, Outspoken, Confident, Supportive

Nothing makes a statement quite like a pizza loaded up with as much meat as humanly possible. Your meat lover’s preference shows that you are loud and proud. You tend to be vocal about your feelings and opinions, and you have nothing to hide. You have a strong sense of pride for your family, your nation, or your accomplishments. You love who you are and all that you have achieved so far. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that!

Regardless of your favorite pizza topping and what it says about your personality, Li’l Rizzo’s has a pizza for everyone. If pizza isn’t you’re thing, the best Italian Restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has many delicious items on our menu. Don't forget about our all day Happy Hour on Sundays!

What We're Craving in October

Fall is here and so is the chilly weather! This time of the year is a wonderful time to embrace the change in scenery as the fall foliage starts to appear. The trees have started to change, the weather is beginning to cool down, and the view from our Horseshoe Bend location couldn't be more beautiful. What's better than sitting back, enjoying the Lake view, and enjoying the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks? Check out what we are currently craving this month at Li'l Rizzo's. 


Lasagna


Nothing says fall quite like comfort food. When the nights are chilly, enjoy some delicious Lasagna to warm you up. Our lasagna is homemade and is made up of 6 layers of pasta, meat sauce, ricotta cheese, and of course Italian sausage. Topped with a blend of mozzarella and Provel cheese and then baked to perfection. You can never go wrong with lasagna!

The Sicilian


When the weather gets cold, sometimes cooking dinner just isn’t on our priority list. Hey, we totally understand! Lucky for you, Li’l Rizzo’s does takeout. Whether you feel up for cooking dinner or not, ordering pizza from Li’l Rizzo’s is always a great idea. Our Sicilian pizza has pepperoni, Italian sausage, crumbled meatballs, and chopped garlic.

Apple Calzone


When you think of fall, apples are usually one thing that comes to mind. Our apple calzone is definitely a fall favorite. The flakey pastry shell is filled with the goodness of apple and cinnamon. You know, the flavors of fall. Of course, we couldn't resist topping this delicious dessert with caramel and a scoop of ice cream. This desert calzone will melt in your mouth as you enjoy every last bite. Don’t forget to save room for dessert!

Pumpkin Spice Martini


Finish off your Italian meal with one of our amazing Pumpkin Spice Martinis. Nothing says fall quite like pumpkin spice. This is definitely a favorite! Sit back and enjoy the big game on one of our many TV's, or enjoy watching the leaves change from our Horseshoe Bend deck, while sipping this amazing combination of vanilla vodka, Bailey's Irish Cream, Pumpkin Flavored Liqueur and a cinnamon and nutmeg topping.

Li'l Rizzo's


Our menu has something perfect for every season, but Fall is special. The spices and flavors of fall are delicious and savory. Our menu at Li'l Rizzo's is so varied that you'll find something for the whole family to enjoy. When you come to the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, you become part of our family.

Calling All Pasta Lovers!

Not only is October National Pizza Month, but it’s also National Pasta Month. Pasta is delicious, and oh so amazing! At Li'l Rizzo's, we love our pastas! In fact, we have about 20 dishes that feature pasta. With so many different styles, flavors and varieties, we were curious about the top styles. After extensive research and possibly extensive eating, the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is here with some of the most popular types of pasta. 

Angel Hair


This long, thin noodle has a round shape. It's generally used with light sauces and vegetables, as well as traditional Italian sauces. It may resemble spaghetti, but it's finer. We personally LOVE Angel Hair at Li'l Rizzo's, and you'll find it in many of our pasta dishes!

Lasagna


Lasagna comes from the Latin word for "pot" (lasanum). This long flat pasta is pretty popular in the scheme of pasta life. You'll find the lasagna pasta used in the lasagna dish, layered with sauce, meat, vegetables, and cheese. Yum!

Manicotti


Manicotti is a "tube" pasta. It can be stuffed with a mixture of meats, cheese, and vegetables. This makes a delicious meal!

Macaroni


This pasta shape is HIGHLY versatile! It’s both simple and comforting. This much-loved pasta can be topped with many different sauces. It can be baked, put in soups, salads, and stir-fry. Traditionally it's used for mac & cheese, but we think it's tastes good no matter how you use it!

Rotini


This spiral-y, twisty pasta is delicious and easy to eat. The twisted shape allows for it to hold bits of meat, vegetables, cheese, and sauce. It’s also a versatile noodle. It works well with any sauce or it can be used to create salads, casseroles, or anything else you would like!

Farfalle (Bow Ties)


This butterfly pasta brightens up any meal with this fun shape! It can be a great pair with any sauce, and a perfect addition to salad or soups!


Spaghetti


Spaghetti will always hold a special place near and dear to our hearts. Not only is it extremely well known, but it is also a main pasta staple. Spaghetti is long, moderately thin, and is most common with a red meat sauce and meatballs! The thin noodles give a great pasta to sauce ratio, even if it can be difficult to eat. 

Any pasta is popular to us and we love them all! While pasta is one of our favorites at Li’l Rizzo’s, we also specialize in many other types of foods. We have pizza, sandwiches, burgers and more! That is part of what makes us the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks
. We have two restaurants, one in Osage Beach, and one on Horseshoe Bend. Both restaurants are great places to sit down and enjoy a delicious dish of pasta and spend time with friends and family. Come in and celebrate National Pizza and National Pasta Month with us!
