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.

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

Salad was very good with the house dressing. I had spaghetti with meat sauce and was not disappointed. I am particular about my sauce and this was excellent!

They have a wonderful dish: The Sizzler. You cook the slices of beef at the table. Wonderful meatball appetizer. The best bread rolls and Italian Salad Dressing at the Lake.
