There Are Lots of Reasons To Celebrate Pasta This October

 Last week's blog was all about the incredible pizzas we serve at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant because October is National Pizza Month. You've got plenty of reasons to celebrate pasta in October as well because this Saturday, October 17 happens to be National Pasta Day, and then a couple of weeks later on Sunday, October 25, World Pasta Day lands on the calendar!

October is a great month for us because we don't just offer one of those honored foods but both - the best pizza and pasta at the Lake of the Ozarks! When you're ready to celebrate pasta this month (in between slices of pizza, of course) here's what we've got waiting for you at Li'l Rizzo's.

Both pasta holidays in October give you an extra excuse to enjoy a big, hot, delicious pasta dish but around here, extra excuses aren't really necessary. Our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant & bar celebrates pasta 7 days a week, all year long! 

Both Li'l Rizzo's locations open daily at 11:00 am. You are welcome to join us in the dining room or place an order to go by giving the restaurant nearest you a call, ordering from our free Lil Rizzos mobile app, or you can easily order Li'l Rizzo's to go online through our website. We'll even bring it out to the car for you if you like! Whichever way makes it easiest for you to celebrate pasta, we're at your service! 

(*Disclaimer: Li'l Rizzo's food and beverage items are subject to change at any time and may not be available at both locations.
