We were desperately seeking a place for lunch that wasn't crowded with Bikefest on a Friday afternoon. Yay! Saw the "open" sign and stopped, even though there were no cars in the lot. We each had a small "world famous" salad that was OK, and a large supreme pizza. Wasn't the best pizza in the world, but was OK. Restaurant... More

Four of us stopped in for an early meal. We were seated quickly at a table with a nice view of the lake. Had the weather been cooler, we would have sat outside on the porch area. Nice atmosphere. The waitress was friendly but was a little slow in responding to requests. First basket of rolls brought to us were... More

We were really hungry when we went in and it was very busy but we got seated in a reasonable amount of time and the service was excellent. The food was also very good!

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.
