Food was great, staff friendly. The chicken spedini was juicy and flavorful. All three of us enjoyed our meals. Tomato Florentine soup was very tasty, as was the chicken modega and shrimp scampi. Will be going back for sure.

Good pizza for a good price. The 'world famous' salad is pretty good too. Service was fast and attentive.

We were at Lil Rizzo's for either a very late lunch or very early dinner (3p) on a Saturday in late October. We shared toasted ravioli and a pizza. The service was oddly slow for the random time that we were there and the very...More

Lil Rizzos had great special the night we were there. Good Italian at reasonable prices. Toads had fairly good breakfast buffet. Had limited lunch menu.

Response from Bill B | Property representative |
It was a regular menu item many years ago. We have not run it as a special in some time. Perhaps we should, I'll discuss with the staff. Thanks for the question.

The truth is, you can get pizza and pasta lots of places these days. We know that, that’s why our mission is to become your favorite restaurant! So how do we do that? With Gourmet Pizza, Pasta, World Famous House Salad and legendary service! The atmosphere is unpretentious, fun and “Lake Casual” so please, don’t violate our dress code. And oh by the way, Gourmet refers to our fresh ingredients, secret hand-crafted recipes and the love we put into every dish, not the price… Our pizza is thin crust with dough made from scratch. (Hand-tossed available at the Osage Beach location) Only the finest meats, cheeses and freshest vegetables adorn the top. Since most of the pasta recipes originate from “The Hill” area of St. Louis you can expect to find many regional favorites like, Toasted Ravioli, Baked Mostaccioli, Cannelloni con Bianco and Lasagna as well as several house specialty pastas. But, if there is one stand-out item on the menu it has to be the House Salad. Cold, crisp and fresh, a blend of Iceberg and Romaine lettuce, diced red peppers, green onions and provel cheese tossed in a red wine vinegar based creamy Italian dressing and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Enjoy outside dining with a beautiful view of the lake at the Lake Ozark location, only 2 miles west of Bagnell Dam Blvd., on Horseshoe Bend Pkwy., or enjoy the Big Game at the Osage Beach location across the street from Dierberg’s at the west entrance to the Outlet Mall. Happy Hour is Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m., with great drink specials and half price appetizers.
