Pasta - Your Way! Customize Your Plate In So Many Delicious Ways

The best pizza and pasta at the Lake of the Ozarks is served daily at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant, both in Lake Ozark and in Osage Beach. While it comes as no surprise to anyone that our pizzas can be customized with a wonderful variety of toppings, sauces, and even gluten-free crust, most don't realize that the same can be done with our plates of pasta as well.   

Pasta Your Way
Our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant has an extensive list of specialty pastas on the menu, ready to order. For those of you that prefer to "create your own" plate of pasta, we actually have some options for you.

Any pasta on our menu can be customized with the following items for a small additional charge. 

  • Gluten-Free Pasta
  • Spinach Pasta (zero carbs)
  • Meatball
  • Italian Sausage
  • Grilled Chicken Breast
  • Roasted Garlic Chicken
  • Bacon
  • Shrimp
  • Extra Sauce
  • Vegetables (peas, broccoli, mushrooms, onions, tomato, garlic, bell peppers)
  • Baked (topped with our homemade Bechamel Sauce and a blend of Italian cheeses.) 

Pasta Our Way
The above additions can be added to any plain pasta of your choice or any one of our own specialty pasta recipes. Some of those dishes are listed below but menus at each location may differ slightly.
