We live at the lake part time and Lil Rizzo's on Horseshoe Bend is our "go to" restaurant.
This is not a fancy place. It's the lake, people. Relaxed. Laid back. If you want something nicer in the area, go to JB Hooks or Baxters. Rizzo's is a pizza place (STL style thin crust pizza) that has a decent menu of Italian food, salads and sandwiches. The prices are pretty reasonable for the lake. The service can be a little hit and miss during the busy season. We try to avoid this restaurant on the big three holiday weeks as the wait for a table can be hours. But that is a sign of a good restaurant.
If you like STL style pizza (which is the thing at LOTO), Rizzo's pizza is better than most. The pasta sauces trend on the chunky side, so if you are like me and you don't like big chucks of tomato in your sauce, opt for something other than pasta. The sandwiches are all good. We've taken lots of family and friends to Rizzo's and everyone likes it.
They do a big carryout business on Horseshoe bend. On a busy weekend, think about doing carryout to avoid the wait. It's worth it!
