The Votes Are In ~ Li'l Rizzo's Has The Best Italian Food!

Lake Lifestyles Magazine recently posted the results of their annual "Best of the Lake" Peoples' Choice Awards. We were extremely honored to find out that our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant received the most votes and has been awarded with the title of "Best Italian Restaurant"! 

It's truly an honor to know that our guests appreciate the food we lovingly create here at Li'l Rizzo's every day. For those of you that have not yet had a chance to dine with us, here's a look at some of the reasons people keep coming back for more of our delicious Italian cuisine. (And for those of you that have dined with us, be warned, if you keep reading this is probably going to make you hungry!) 

Incredible Italian Food
We strive to serve the best pasta and pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks by using only the freshest ingredients and secret hand-crafted recipes that we've perfected over time. Many of our pasta recipes originate from "The Hill" area of St. Louis which means you can expect to find regional favorites on the menu like Toasted Ravioli, Baked Mostaccioli, Cannelloni con Bianco, and Lasagna. Beyond those, you will also find all the "classics" plus several house specialties of our own creation. 

Oh, and once you've tasted our Famous House Salad, it's sure to become one of your new favorite foods! It's a cold, crisp, and fresh blend of Iceberg and Romaine lettuce, diced peppers, green onions, and Provel cheese tossed in a red vinegar-based creamy Italian dressing sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and served with our amazing Ciabatta rolls and butter. 

Another popular item is our mouthwatering gourmet pizzas. The heart of any pizza is the dough. We make ours from scratch using unbromated, unbleached flour plus fine sea salt for its intense, clean flavor and EVOO because it creates a smoother texture and more tender dough. That magnificent dough is then topped with hand-cut, fresh vegetables, premium meats, and the finest cheeses. Both locations offer this terrific thin-crust pizza but our Osage Beach restaurant also offers hand-tossed. 

More Reasons To Love Li'l Rizzo's
The best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks is the main reason that most people dine with us but it's not the only reason! Here are a few more of the things there are to love about Li'l Rizzo's.

  • 2 Locations
    We've got two convenient locations so that no matter where you are in the lake area, you're probably near a Li'l Rizzo's! The Lake Ozark restaurant on Horsehoe Bend Parkway features outdoor dining with a spectacular lake view just 2 miles west of Bagnell Dam Blvd. The restaurant in Osage Beach is located across the street from Dierberg's at the west entrance of the Outlet Mall and has plenty of TVs to catch all the big games.
  • Half-Price Happy Hour
    The best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks happens year-round at Li'l Rizzo's Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm. This includes incredible drink specials plus half-price appetizers. Once football season begins, we even add an All-Day Happy Hour on Sundays!
  • Easy Online Ordering
    When you prefer to order Li'l Rizzo's to go, we've done everything we can to make it as easy as possible. You can give either the restaurant a call directly (numbers listed below), download our free Lil Rizzos mobile app, or order Li'l Rizzo's to go online through our website. We even offer curbside pickup upon request.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to vote for us in this year's Best of the Lake poll. We look forward to seeing you again very soon! If, on the other hand, Li'l Rizzo's is new to you, we're looking forward to meeting you and showing you in person all the reasons why you're going to love it here!
