Great meal!

After a morning of shopping we stopped for a late lunch. The house salad is AMAZING. The house dressing is so good, I bought some to take home. If you like thin crust, the pizza was great!

We actually came to this restaurant by default....after having a horribly rude experience at another Italian Restaurant listed we had seen listed on Trip Advisor. New to the area we just picked the other one randomly, but decided to walk shortly after we were seated before we ordered. We promptly drove to Li'l Rizzo's and when we shared our story... More

We vacation in the Osage Beach area several times every summer and one place we always go (at least once) every time down is Li'l Rizzo's. They have absolutely the coldest beer on tap anywhere in town. All of the food is well above average and their Italian wings are a great twist on an old standard. Troy and the... More

It's almost like coming home. I've been eating at Rizzo's since the Earth was cooling, well almost. Very traditional pizza, outstanding house salad, great wings and toasty raviolis. Great list of beverages. Bring your date or the whole family. They can get pretty busy so have a drink and be patient. See you there!

Locals took me there for Lunch- late lunch. Starting with the house salad and rolls- wanted more taste was so surprising. Followed that up with Chicken Alfredo which was by far the best ever. There was five in our group with five different selections- no one was disappointed. I would go out of my way to return to this restaurant.... More

When you get inside the first thing i noticed was the cute "outdoor patio italian feel", the decor is fun for the entire family. They have a broad selection of drinks and delicious meals but my absolute favorite was the bruschetta appetizer and the pizza! I did not leave hungry to say the least. I will definitely be returning to... More

I started out with a house salad. The salad comes with a house dressing which is a creamy Italian. It had more of a vinegar base tastes to me. It was complimented really well with the parm cheese and black olives it's topped with. I ordered the sauteed mushrooms as an app. They weren't what I was expecting, they came... More

I haven't ordered anything I didn't like. The kids loved the pizza, I have had lasagna a couple of times and it's always excellent. Salads were a great side dish, crisp and fresh. Spaghetti is equally delicious. Great service and always served quickly.

Ate here again last week and had spaghetti and meat sauce and their salad. Delish! Especially love their salad. It is a fun place to dine and the servers are always courteous. Their pizza is also special if you are in the mood for a pizza! I dined at the Li'l Rizzo's in Osage Beach and look forward to returning.

Glad you enjoyed the spag meat sauce and salad, it's one of the best selling combos on our menu. Our pizzas are made from scratch, nothing frozen or pre-made, ever. Thanks for your business! More
