Pasta & Pizza PLUS... So Much More!
We proudly serve the best pasta & pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks 7 days a week. That should come as no surprise for an Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.
What may surprise some to know is that, in addition to the expected menu items from Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant, we've got quite a few other delicious dishes for you too! Here's a closer look at the many fantastic flavors we've created to keep you full, happy, and always anxious to try something new.
The Obvious - Pasta!
All of your favorite pasta dishes can be found on the menu, each made with fresh ingredients and homemade sauces. From Spaghetti and Lasagna to our unique Cajun Shrimp Pasta and Creamy Chicken Mostaccioli, you'll have a lot to choose from.
We even give diners the option to customize our pasta with a wide variety of meats, vegetables, and sauces. You can choose to have a dish baked too and we even have gluten-free pasta available to order.
Sandwiches & Lunch Specials
Every day from 11:00 am-3:00 pm, we serve a special lunch menu. Here you'll find taste-tempting sandwiches and burgers. For example, there is our Hot Italian Sub piled high with Italian roast beef, smoked turkey breast, and pastrami with our house dressing, melted Provel cheese, and green onions. And, if you're in the mood for a burger, the Rizzo Burger is a must-try!
We also offer combo plates that pair our "World Famous" House Salad with a nice variety of "plate partners", including soup, toasted ravioli, pizza, wings, or our giant meatball. Be sure to ask about daily specials when you come in too, for both lunch and dinner.
You will find plenty of dinner-sized pasta options on the menu to satisfy a hearty appetite. We also offer a few entrees for those rare times you're just not in a pasta mood. Two of these mouthwatering entrees are an 8-ounce Top Sirloin and a savory Grilled Salmon filet.
Half-Price Happy Hour Appetizers
Many consider the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks to be the one you'll discover right here at Li'l Rizzo's. In addition to some excellent drink specials from the bar, we also offer our entire appetizer menu for half-price! On this menu, you'll find Toasted Ravioli, Wings, Portobello Mushrooms, Spinach-Green Chili-Jalapeno Dip, and more.
Happy Hour happens year-round each Mondy-Friday from 3:00-6:00 pm. During the off-season (which is still here for a few more weeks), we extend our Happy Hour specials to last all day every Sunday too! Make it a point to come in soon before that weekend special goes into hibernation again.
The Perfect Pizza
Last, but certainly not least, is the amazing pizza at Li'l Rizzo's. It's the perfect meal to serve a big crowd of people as well as a food that just about everyone, no matter what the age and taste differences, can always agree on!
Our pizzas start with a made-from-scratch dough that gets topped with only the freshest of ingredients. We create our "pies" in 3 sizes; 8", 12", and 13" plus offer a 12" gluten-free cauliflower crust as well. Both Li'l Rizzo's locations serve an incredible thin crust but our Osage Beach restaurant also offers a hand-tossed crust.
Feel free to create your own magical pizza creation from our long list of toppings and sauces or simply pick out one of the many signature pizza creations our chefs have put together. For example, the Big Ten Pizza comes with 10 of our most popular toppings - pepperoni, sausage, bacon, hamburger, Canadian bacon, onion, black olives, green peppers, tomato, AND extra cheese!
So you see, our Lake of the Ozarks family-friendly restaurant is both the perfect place to cure your Italian food cravings and also a wonderful dining choice even when you're not in the mood for pasta or pizza. Join us in the dining room soon or order Li'l Rizzo's to-go online easily and conveniently through our website.
