Enjoy the "Sweet" Life With Li'l Rizzo's at the Lake of the Ozarks
Halloween is coming up this weekend. It's a holiday associated with spooky things and lots of candy. Since we don't want to scare you when you dine at our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant & bar, we've decided to focus on the sweet treats we've got to offer instead. The next time you "treat" yourself to lunch or dinner at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant, save some room for these tasty items.
Gummy Bear Pizza
For this unique dish, we combine dessert with dinner for a kids' menu item that children simply cannot resist! It's an 8-inch version of our incredible cheese pizza that comes with a side of gummy bears. Once those sweet bears are placed on top of the pizza, they melt in the most intriguing way, creating a meal that tastes great. If the kids at your table will allow you to try it, we highly suggest that you do!
We offer different dessert specials daily, from cheesecake to tiramisu, and more. Be sure to ask your server what that day's specialty desserts are before you order. (It just might make a difference in which dish you choose if you want to save room!)
We also have 2 dessert calzones on the menu that are always available, 7 days a week. Both consist of a flaky pastry shell full of flavorful ingredients. The Apple Calzone is filled with apples and cinnamon, then topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel. Our Chocolate Calzone is stuffed with rich dark chocolate, topped with vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with chocolate syrup.
You may choose to add some sweetness to your meal in liquid form. Our fully-stocked bar can mix up all kinds of drinks that are both beautiful and refreshingly delicious. For example, our Blue Sky cocktail is made with vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao, and Sprite. Lake Waters are popular here in the lake area, with Malibu rum, blue curacao, and pineapple juice. Our Pineapple Upside Down Martini is like dessert in a glass consisting of pineapple juice, vanilla vodka, grenadine, and amaretto.
Don't forget, if you join us during the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks, (Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm and all day on Sundays) you may be able to get your drink at a discounted price to go along with our long list of half-price Happy Hour appetizers.
What's First - Dinner or Dessert?
Halloween can easily be considered a special occasion, so maybe you'll want to eat dessert first and then follow that up with a plate of the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks. Of course, if you want to do that any day of the week throughout the year, we won't judge you for it. In fact, we bet you deserve it! Do what makes you happy, which hopefully includes a trip to Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant!
