What We’re Craving in October

Image
When we walked out the door this morning, we were greeted with amazingly cool temperatures and the scent of fall in the air. This means only one thing, we’re craving all of the fall favorites! From warm dishes that make us feel warm and cozy on the insides, to rich choices and spicy drinks. Here are just a few of the things we’re craving this month as the temperatures stay cool and the flavors stay warm.


Toasted Ravioli There something perfectly comforting about toasted ravioli. It’s warm, savory, and flavorful. Not to mention, there’s something cozy about dipping it in our delicious meat marinara sauce. This delicious appetizer is made from beef ravioli, and deep fried to a perfect golden brown. We top them with parsley flakes and parmesan cheese to complete this delicious starter. Make them even better by dipping them in your minestrone soup!


Minestrone Soup & Italian Sausage Sandwich Our Minestrone soup is warm and delicious. It’s tomato based and made from scratch right here a…

Some of the best comfort food can be found in the form of an ice cold pint of beer paired with a steaming hot pizza straight from the oven. At Li’l Rizzo’s we know how important comfort food is - which is why we provide it for you on a regular basis! Tuesday, October 9th is Beer & Pizza Day. If you can’t join us next week to celebrate, why not come this weekend? We’ve got amazingly delicious pizzas on the menu, and the perfect pint to pair with them. Here are a few Lake of the Ozarks pizza and beer pairings to get your weekend started right!


Rizzo’s Margherita & Pale Ale This pizza boasts of brushed olive oil crust, fresh mozzarella, dollops of ricotta, fresh tomato and basil sprinkled with grated parmesan. Pale ale’s go great with the pizza’s toasty crust and also can balance out the acidity of the tomatoes. This light beer will no down out the subtle flavor of the mozzarella either. Instead, it pushes it to the forefront! If you're hungry for this combination - stop by o…
