Description: 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.

We stop at Lil Rizzo's everytime we go to the Outlets at Osage Beach. The house sald is akin to the salads on the Hill in St. Louis and is always spot on! The garlic bread rolls they serve complimentary are amazing! This trip we had a pizza and it was perfect. Lots of flavor. Great value.

Service was good, prompt. No complaints there. (Except our server smelled like smoke). The only negative is the air freshners by the bathrooms. Combined with the cleaning products, it smells!

Visited Lil Rizzos for the first time this past weekend and it was really good. Would definitely eat here again.
Visited around lunch time on a Friday and I had the Manacotti lunch combo (2 manacotti and a salad). I believe it was around $9 or so and my husband had the hot Italian Sandwich. Both were very tasty! The salad had a bit too much cheese for my taste (which i didn't know was possible) but i'm sure others would love it - just a personal preference. Waitress was very friendly and attentive.
Menu had something for everyone - Pizza, Pasta, Sandwiches, Soups and Salads
Husband really liked the fact that they still have a smoking section (it was around the bar area) because some places are non-smoking only now. I am not a smoker so this is never an issue for me but could be for some.
Overall great experience! Definitely a do-over!
