The food was average. It's hard to believe they receive four and five stars and were voted best Italian restaurant. The spinach dip was excellent. The rest of our food was average. We had pizza, cavatelli, spaghetti with meat sauce and carbonara. The service was adequate, nothing outstanding. One plus, the menu is large.

Enjoyed the meatballs and cannelloni. Very nice red sauce. Great price and lots of food. Only complaint was the salad came on a newly washed plate that was warm.

One of the best Italian restaurants ever been to. I love the homemade minestrone soup and dinner roles. After the starters I usually will get seafood pasta or pizza. The menu has so many options to choose from. If they are too busy (Saturday nights) just sit at their bar and sample their extensive draft beer selection. Very comfortable environment... More

Pepper and sausage with linguini noodles was great. Fried ravioli is the bomb. Salads with house Italian dressing are good. Very good value.

Ate at Li'l Rizzo's last week while on vacation at the Lake. The food was great, the service attentive, the atmosphere was lively (Sat night), and the prices reflect great value. The portions are big and most of our table of 10 split entrees and we all shared a large pizza as an appetizer. We will definitely make this place... More

Had never had Italian chicken wings before. We saw they had won a wing competition. And the bartender highly recommended them. AWESOME. marinated in their house dressing. Baked and then rolled in Parmesan and red pepper flakes WOW. Regular wings then baked "dirty" were very good as well. Salad addictive and pizza crust is very thin and crisp. Pizza sauce... More

My family visited the week of July 4th, 2014 and this place was crazy busy. It seemed like a very popular spot especially for big tables. We arrived at 7:20 pm and didn't actually eat until 9:00 pm. We ordered the fried ravioli to start and while it was tasty, again the wait was way too long. I ordered the... More

This restaurant was rated #1 Italian restaurant in the Lake of the Ozarks. I'm thinking it may be the only Italian restaurant there? It just wasn't very good. They were very busy and we waited a long time for our food. I had the spaghetti and meatball. It was listed as one of their "specialties". The noodle were watery which... More
