What We're Craving This March at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant
March is here, bringing with it the lovely days of spring, St. Patrick's Day, and for you sports fans out there, March Madness. It also brings out new cravings for us at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant. Here's a closer look at some of the delicious dishes we're thinking about right now at our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurant. We're willing to bet that once you read about these irresistible foods, you'll be craving them too!
Italian Chef Salad
Many of you have already fallen in love with Li'l Rizzo's "World Famous" House Salad, filled with a blend of iceberg and romaine lettuce, diced red peppers, green onions, Provel cheese, Parmesan cheese, and our homemade red wine vinegar-based creamy Italian house dressing. For one of your meals in the near future, you might consider upgrading that amazing house salad to our Italian Chef Salad.
In addition to the fantastic flavors the house salad already contains, we add sliced pastrami, Italian roast beef, and smoked turkey breast on top. You get a healthy dose of "greens", a taste that is out of this world, and hearty meats that make for a very satisfying meal.
Spinach, Green Chili, & Jalapeno Dip
This incredible dip can be found on the appetizer menu, which means if you come in during the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can enjoy it for half-price! (Happy Hour happens this time of year each Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm and all day every Sunday.) This creamy, cheesy dip contains flavorful spinach, green chilies, and jalapenos and is served with tortilla chips.
Tuscan Chicken Sandwich
From the lunch menu at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant & bar, which is served from 11 am-3 pm daily, this sandwich is a popular choice. We take a hearty chicken breast, grill it to perfection, and smother it in a blend of mozzarella and Provel cheese, top that with lettuce, tomato, and mayo, and serve it all with your choice of chips or fries. A wonderful, healthier alternative to a fried chicken sandwich. (Although, our menu options with fried chicken are hard to resist too!)
Cavatelli Con Broccoli
This pasta dish is so delicious, you will find it on both our lunch and dinner menus. It is made up of shell-shaped cavatelli noodles that are coated in our creamy, homemade Alfredo sauce. Along with that amazing sauce, the noodles are joined by both mushrooms and broccoli for a well-rounded taste sensation that just may become your new favorite!
With the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks in our hometown, you can't help but start craving seafood at some point while you are here. (If you dine at our Li'l Rizzo's location on Horseshoe Bend Parkway, you get to enjoy a breathtaking lake view along with the best pasta & pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks!)
You'll find many mouthwatering pastas on the menu paired with shrimp and we've even got a wonderful Seafood Pizza that features shrimp, clams, and crab meat. If you're here in the evening for dinner, we highly suggest our grilled salmon filet. It's cooked perfectly and served with sauteed mixed vegetables plus your choice of soup or a house salad.
Rizzo's Margherita Pizza
We offer lots of different types of specialty pizzas at Li'l Rizzo's plus a long list of tasty toppings that let you create your own pizza masterpiece. The Rizzo's Margherita Pizza features lots of fresh, toppings that go down nicely on a warm, spring day. It's made with a brushed olive oil crust, fresh mozzarella, dollops of ricotta, plus fresh tomato and basil. All of that deliciousness is sprinkled with grated Parmesan.
There you have a lovely list of fantastic foods to give a try when you join us at Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant this month. Of course, this is only a very small sampling of the many, many amazing types of food we've got waiting for you!
