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.

Ate here with the family and had a really good meal the wife and I ate here with our two girls and everybody found something to there liking. They have quite a large menu so it was tough to decide what to try, I'm looking forward to going back to try more. Total cost for 4 with two appetizers was $67 and we brought enough home to easily make a lunch out of leftovers the next day.

My food was cold and not very good and the bread they put on the table is TERRIBLE. I was really disappointed and will not return.

We visit Lake O 2-3 times a year. Our first place to go is Lil Rizzos at the Lake for their house salad excellent and a pizza. The best we have found at the lake, and some of the best we have anywhere around the KC area. The house salad is an Italian salad and Italian dressing, just enough dressing. Just yummy. Pizza is thin crust, perfectly baked, not dry at all. Just the right amount of perfect tomato sauce and real cheese. Add your favorite toppings and there you have it. On our last visit to the lake for a conference, we went twice! There pasta dishes are excellent as well.
They have 2 locations, equally good, but we slightly prefer the location on the lake only because of the view you have of the lake. Be prepared to wait, if you go at dinner time. Hit it earlier or a little after dinner time and there is no wait.
