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.

Lil Rizzos HH

Lil Rizzos has been a wonderful family restaurant for nearly 20 years. Great location and fantastic view of Lake of the Ozarks. Happy hours are great bargains. Family dining is modestly priced. The service staff and bar tenders are very friendly. Great Italian cuisine.

Our friends live near this restaurant and it is one of their favorites in the Lake Ozark area. And I now know why. Even though it was New Year's evening and the throngs of revelers from NYE home recovering, the venue was full. The service was attentive and friendly. Our party of four had four different dishes and everyone remarked... More

If you are from the St. Louis area and love Imo's pizza then make sure you stop here. You will see why they were voted best pizza on the lake for many years. Not only great pizza but tasty pasta dishes and sandwiches.
