We had a bad experience at another restaurant earlier in the evening, and ended up here. I was ready for more poor service. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. Our order arrived quickly and we had plenty of good food at a reasonable price.

The food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary and the time it took to get the food was a very long wait.

We stopped here while we were in town. It was close to our b&b. We both had a cocktail and the spinach dip and chips appetizer while we waited for our pizza. Very good I must say. We will definitely go back. They have a nice outdoor patio that overlooks the lake from up on a hill so if the... More

Went here for a birthday dinner. I found most of the food to have little taste. Salad need some seasoning. My entree was supposed to be served with meat sauce but I only found 2 tiny pieces of meat in the dish. Server wasn't very attentive but he did have a large group. Wouldn't recommend it.

We love this place and have been coming for over 15 years. The house salads are so good! The Italian wings are some of the best wings I have ever eaten HANDS DOWN! The pasta is good and so is the loaded potato skins. I do like the thin crust on the pizza however I have experienced inconsistency in their... More

We visited on a Sunday evening. We had a 20 minute wait and I understand at times there is a much longer wait. Our table was perfect! We were seated on the covered patio and once they remembered to turn on the string of lights it was beautiful. Several of us had spaghetti and meat ball. At our table we... More

A good restaurant with good salad, wings and pasta. I bet this is a consistent restaurant that serves consistent food, so the waitresses need to make the experience better.

We thought their house salad was super delicious. The lasagna was good but the favorite was a shell pasta dish with a white cream sauce and broccoli

Description
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.
