The wait was a tad long but so is everything at the Lake this time of the year. Food was good, reasonable price, great decor. Sadly you cannot talk with people at your table & expect them to hear you, bad echo, other than a must go to place while at the lake.

Good Italian place. Service was average and food was good. I'd recommend pizza since it their specialty. Pasta was just average. Price is fair

We ate here on our last night after a weeks vacation. We wanted something delicious and simple and thats exactly what we got. The service could use some work- our waitress was not very friendly and didnt know the menu very well. But other than that, the food was good and we were surprised how low our bill was. I... More

Located right next to the outlet mall, Lil Rizzo's was a nice and affordable Italian dinner. I had chicken with angel hair pasta and it was delicious. My daughter had spaghetti with a giant meatball. Both were great. We would go back.

Food was ok, service was kind of slow. Very very noisy atmosphere and was not very enjoyable. The food was highly over priced.

This was a very busy place, probably because it is more reasonably priced than many other restaurants in the area. The selection and quality of pizza and pastas was fairly good. The view of the lake is not as good as some other restaurants in the area.

I love the view from the little unassuming place. It overlooks the lake and on a nice (not humid nasty or raining day) they have a little patio you can eat outside. They have a great deal on a side salad and personal pizza for lunch that was the perfect size and price, and really tasty too! The salad features... More

Always busy and always worth the wait. I have eaten here maybe a dozen times and have never been disappointed. I have had several of their pasta dishes as well as eating pizza there and getting carry out. While they are generally pretty busy, the wait for a table rarely takes more than 30 minutes. That gives you plenty of... More

I came here for dinner recently. I was seated promptly. My waitress took my drink order and food order very quickly. There was a lot of people at the restaurant eating and drinking, so I was extremely pleased with the service. My food arrived in a timely manner and was excellent tasting. The waitress brought drink refills when needed.
