We took the original bathrooms circa 1989 down to the studs, we even removed the existing tile floors and completely updated everything! New tile, new vanities, new stalls, and made it flow seamlessly with the rest of the restaurant. Our bathrooms now have a little bit of Italy and are updated and modern.
New Bar Area
We removed the old green laminated counters and bar top (if that bar could talk...), stripped, stained and refinished all of the woodwork in the bar area, removed the existing tile floor, carpet in the entry and the drink rail along the wall separating the bar from the dining room for additional space. Our brand new bar area is more open and contemporary. It features a beautiful granite bar and countertops, as well as a new foot railing and new tile flooring throughout. For the ladies, we also added purse hangers, so you no longer have to drape your purse over your chair or place it on the floor. We've opened up the area so you can enjoy Happy Hour with your friends more comfortably.
New Deck Area
Throughout the season at Lake of the Ozarks, we experience many rainy days. Before, you could not enjoy our beautiful outdoor space during those days. We changed this by removing the old vinyl awning and supporting structure, replacing it with a permanent wooden structure and metal roof, new fans and LED rope lighting. Now, if it's raining, you can still enjoy sitting outside with a delicious meal while gazing over our beautiful view of the Lake of the Ozarks. One thing we love to do here at Li'l Rizzo's during the summer is feature live music on the deck, so be sure to join us on Sunday evenings for Me and Jim.
While we have done a lot of upgrading and remodeling this year, we still have all your old favorites. You can still expect to find the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks. From traditional Italian fare like lasagna to local favorites like toasted ravioli, you can find it all at Li'l Rizzo's.
We Hope To See You Soon
If you haven't already, we hope you come down to check out what we have done. Happy Hour is a great time to see what we have done to the bar area. From 3:00 - 6:00 PM Monday through Friday, enjoy drink specials and half priced appetizers. This weekend, it's going to be in the 80s, which is perfect weather for enjoying the new updates to the deck area. In addition, every Sunday night, we have live music from Me & Jim on the outdoor deck. We can't wait to show you our new updates!
