Take Your Taste Buds on a Trip with Li'l Rizzo's

Even though we are all encouraged to stay at home right now, Li'l Rizzo's wants to help you get away... through your taste buds! In today's blog, we're featuring some of the menu items from our Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks that will take you on a trip around the world, if only in your imagination and, well, your stomach. Come with us on a world tour for your taste buds!

Hawaiian Pizza
The thought of hanging out on a beautiful island far away from here sounds magical right about now. While travel is discouraged at the time, you can take your taste buds on a trip with some Hawaiian Pizza! Pineapple, Canadian bacon, and green bell peppers may sound strange to some, but it's a taste sensation worth giving a try. 

The Sicilian Pizza
Now we are off to Sicily, another fantastic island. As a matter of fact, Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Just like this extremely large island, our specialty pizza offers great big flavor! With pepperoni, Italian sausage, crumbled meatballs, and chopped garlic on top, it truly satisfies even the biggest hunger. 

Portobello Mushrooms
Did you know that Portobello is not only a delicious mushroom but also a coastal suburb of Edinburgh in Scotland? Now that you have that knowledge, you can close your eyes and let your mind take you away when you bite into our savory appetizer! 

These sliced Portobello mushrooms are sauteed in a Worcestershire based sauce with garlic, butter, and green onions. 

Italian Wings
Let's face it, hot wings are simply irresistible. (Especially the way we make them!) We offer 3 fantastic ways to enjoy wings at Li'l Rizzo's. There is our Original buttery hot sauce and the tangy BBQ Mojo, but to fit in with today's travel theme, we're craving those incredible Italian wings we have perfected. 

Our Italian wings are not only delicious but also award-winning! They are marinated in our house dressing and then baked and tossed in parmesan cheese and crushed red peppers.  

Tuscan Chicken Sandwich
Now, on to Italy. (Since we do serve the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks, our taste bud trip around the world will be spending quite a bit of time in Italy!) Tuscany is known for its beautiful landscapes and its artistic legacy. This particular sandwich is known for being a culinary work of art! 

Tender sliced roasted garlic chicken is smothered in a blend of mozzarella and Provel cheese and served on a ciabatta bun with a side of lettuce, tomato, and red onion. 

Hot Italian Sub
Next up, all of Italy! Among being well known for its contributions to the worlds of art, architecture, fashion, opera, literature, and more, this country brings to mind some of the tastiest foods available! On this particular sandwich, we pack it full of flavor by putting Italian roast beef, smoked turkey breast, and pastrami, served hot, on a ciabatta bun with our house dressing, melted Provel cheese, and green onions. Delizioso! 

Pasta, Pasta, & More Pasta!
And last, but certainly not least, get a true taste of Italy anytime you order any of our fantastic pasta dishes! We've got the classics, like Lasagna, Spaghetti, and Manicotti, plus specialty pastas featuring seafood, beef, pork, or chicken. No matter which way to go, you simply cannot make a wrong decision! 

Let Li'l Rizzo's get you out of the house, even if it's just for a road trip to pick up some to-go food and an imaginary world tour for your tastes buds! We are currently offering curbside pickup at the Lake of the Ozarks at both of our locations. Give us a call, order online, or use our convenient mobile app to place the order and when you arrive in the parking lot, we'll have it ready to go for you.
