4. Family Friendly Environment
The best part about joining us for lunch or dinner is our family friendly environment. The whole family will LOVE coming to our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant. There is something for everyone on our menu so even the pickiest eater will find something they'll enjoy. In addition, our little diners will get crayons and a coloring page to keep them entertained until their food arrives at the table.
5. Live Music Every Sunday
Every Sunday night at our Lake Ozark location, we have live music from Me & Jim. Delicious Italian food, cocktails and live music - it's the perfect way to end your week! "Me and Jim" play instrumental renditions of rock music from the 60'S and 70's. They use vintage guitars and sometimes mandolin, performing familiar tunes at conversational volume. "Jim," that is Jim Biggs, has performed in concert with such big names as Chuck Berry, Barbara Mandrel, and Barbara Fairchild. Jim played the Hotel Circuit pickin' country and rock music during the 70's and 80's all across the country. He owns a pile of vintage guitars, mostly Les Pauls, and has been known to bring several of them to the shows and switch guitars as they become too hot to handle! As for "Me," Frank Phelps grew up playing rock music and performed in many bands that no one has ever heard of, but had fun just the same. Frank has performed from California to Canada in night clubs, hotels, and basements, doing concerts, dances, parties and festivals.
These are just a few of the many reasons to visit the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. Whether it's your first visit or if you're a regular, we love that you decided to join us at Li'l Rizzo's. We can't wait to see you soon!
