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.

Great food but very noisy

We have eaten at Lil Rizzos several times. The location on Horseshoe Bend is wonderful. Unfortunately, this time we ate at the location near the outlet mall. Although the food was delicious, it was extremely noisy. My family had trouble hearing one another during our meal. This is the second... read more

Great Italian food. Awesome atmosphere. You can't beat the pasta! They have live entertainment on weekends and great happy hour special on weekday evenings.

Dinner with husband and my mom. Lasagna was tasty, nothing spectacular. Bit down on something hard which looked like a piece of bone, possibly from the ground meat. Didn't break a tooth but it hurt. Server put it on a napkin and took it to the kitchen. She came back and said the Chef told her it was rendered bacon.... More

House salad was bland but the supreme pizza was really flavorful. The staff was friendly and great with our toddlers. :-)

We tried to have a nice dinner out. Went to lil rizzos, walked in and saw no fewer than 7 tables completely open. There were people waiting, and they told us an hour wait. We asked about the tables, and they were very rude. It was a Friday night, if they weren't staffed for those tables, they should have been.... More

Really a nice atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor seating. Pizza and salads are delicious. We eat here every time we stay at the lake, which is often.

We tried their pizza for first time and enjoyed it. We did carry out and were missing an item and had to go back to retrieve it. Every item we've tried has been great. We enjoy dining in and the carry out option.

Lil Rizzo's has the best pizza at the Lake. We always go for the supreme and have never been disappointed. Salads are also awesome.
