LOTS of Pasta - Keep Coming Back To Try Them All!

DID YOU KNOW... that there are hundreds of different types of pasta? Here at Li'l Rizzo's, we don't serve quite that many but our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant does offer an extremely wide variety of different pasta dishes to choose from. More than enough to let you visit us quite a few times and taste a new one each visit.

If you need some incentive to eat more pasta (besides the fact that it's so very satisfying and delicious), eat it because it makes you feel good! Turns out, that good mood isn't just from the flavor. Science has proven that the carbohydrates in pasta increase your body's production of serotonin, which triggers feelings of happiness. (Bonus!) 

So, get ready to get hungry read all about the many different pasta dishes we have waiting here for you at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant.
