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

The pizza I like. The other dishes I have had, I am not at all impressed with. The last time I was there, the waiter was a bit cold and offish. Just not impressed.

KL, I'm sorry you were not happy with your Cavatelli con Broccoli and service on this particular visit. Thanks for providing the additional info, I discussed this with our staff at the last meeting. It's great that you were happy with your other visits, have you joined our rewards program? Thank you for your comments and business. Bill Borders More

We went to Li'l Rizzo's last night as a part of a moderately (20-22) large wedding party. I would describe the interior as a mix between sports bar and Italian restaurant. Since the STL Cardinals are in the playoffs, I can say that it was less than quiet. Even if the Cardinals had not been playing, the acoustics are such... More

I have eaten here many times, I love it! I usually get a salad, but have also had the pasta. The rolls are AMAZING. Salads are great, and the loaded potato skins appetizer is delicious! Will be back!

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.
