While this is an Italian restaurant with great pizza and pasta, you've got to try the wings! We always get the original and make them "filthy" (they run them through the pizza oven a couple of time so they come out nice and crisp.) Add a delicious house salad, a couple of warm rolls and you've got a perfect lunch!... More

Visited last night! The wait was 30 min but definitely worth it. Best pizza I've ever had! The sauce was so unique. The people were nice. The pizza was cut into squares..... but I'll get over it ;)

Super Italian food. We had the portobello mushrooms as an appetizer (awesome flavor), veal, chicken speidini, beef & pork pasta. The house Zinfandel was crisp and delicious. Wonderful flavours and service. Good ambience too. A must visit for a fine Italian meal

Went here on a Tuesday for happy hour. .45 cent wing night. Their Italian wings are amazing and a must! Had a dinner salad as well which all was plenty. Just remodeled and it looks great! I will be back!

Great restaurant! Enjoyed the best lasagna I've ever eaten! Assistant manager Megan checked on our table and was super friendly and sincerely cares about the customers experience. Acoustic music playing in the background added to the ambiance. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

After a good day's start shopping at the Outlet Mall, there's nothing better than grabbing some good grub at Rizzo's. We vary between their great selection of salads, pizza, or spaghetti. We've been steady customers for years and always enjoy it. Food quality is always steady with no surprises. Walking distance from the outlets and a safe bet for quality... More

We came in for a light dinner and happened upon a great deal on the 1/2 price happy hour on appetizers! Our server Kim D. was a great waitress, super friendly and so helpful.

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.
