Gourmet pizza, pasta and world famous house salad served in a casual setting. We have been the Lake's pizza and pasta place since 1985 and voted Best Italian Restaurant at the Lake for 5 years in a row. Great food, great fun, "lake" casual. Come in to one of our two Lake of the Ozarks locations and enjoy one of the area's best restaurants. We strive to give our guests a great dining experience in a unique Italian atmosphere. Generous portions and a wide variety of menu items, all made from the freshest quality ingredients and served in a casually elegant atmosphere, make for a refreshing dining experience at Lake of the Ozarks.

Took my dad to lunch in one of my favorite restaurants. I go to this restaurant for the wonderful salads and the other great food choices. The atmosphere is relaxed and the wait staff was very helpful. There is a view of the lake from the restaurant if you are sitting at a table near the window. They also have... More

I have been dining at Lil Rizzos for many years and am disappointed that it has been gradually been going down hill in quality and service. What used to be special is now just mediocre.

There are 2 locations in Osage Beach. The one on the west or newer part of town was packed - we didn't want to wait. However, the location next to the outlet mall was disappointing. Our server seemed afraid of us. Spaghetti with one meatball was $11 and doesn't come with a salad; some entrees do. Watery sauce. Meal did... More

An Italian Restaurant but their menu offers a variety of food to satisfy anyone. They offer a happy hour & appetizer specials during the week. Service is always friendly. Try their house salad, pizza, any pasta entree, etc. You won't b disappointed!

Pizza was dry, and not tasty at all. Waiter tried his best, but he had too many tables to handle, which resulted in some of our food order not being hot, only warm..

Food was bland. Wife had Meatballs, it tasted like a cheap frozen package meatball you buy at walmart. It had no meat flavor. I had southwest Pizza... It was bland with chunks of hard dry chicken. Crust was ok. It tasted like a Take Home and Bake pizza from the grocery store. Service was fine. They even offered us to... More

We have been to this restaurant for that past 7 years and keep coming back because the food is good, but the service is always questionable. This time it was terrible! We checked in at 6:59 pm and a text was sent to my phone. They told us 15-20 minutes, we walked past the bar to some tables in the... More
