My adult granddaughter have pretty much made this a must when we visit the lake. The garlic cheese bread is unmatched and the bruschetta is wonderful. The only reason for four instead of five stars is there is not enough spice in Cajun dishes. If there was a 4 1/2 star option I would have given that. They are still... More

We were there on a Monday night during a Lake of the Ozarks vacation. The restaurant was very busy so we figured it must be good and it didn't disappoint. I ordered salmon and my husband ordered garlic chicken pasta. We got there before 6 pm so were able to get wine for 1/2 price ($3/glass). We were impressed with... More

What a great surprise...we have been to this area many times, but this was our first time eating at Lil Rizzo's. It will definitely not be our last. The food was great, atmosphere nice, great view of the lake, kid friendly, and priced reasonable. I would highly recommend Lil Rizzo's.

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.
