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.

Went with friends on a Friday evening. We were greeted enthusiastically and seated immediately. Our server acted less than happy to see us, and like she didn't care to wait on us. We didn't let it keep us from enjoying our visit. The food was very good, and there was a lot of it! Everyone had enough for a midnight snack. I will certainly eat here again, but will hope for a different server.

We eat here about once per month on average. Great Italian food with good service and reasonable prices.

Ordered several pizzas for a group on 3/23 and they were ALL very good, but the SEAFOOD pizza is in a class of its own!!! If you like seafood, this is a MUST to try!! I ordered it without bacon since it was a Lenten Friday, but the bacon was NOT missed!! I was SHOCKED that there were REAL sized shrimp on the pizza and not small, salad shrimp that you usually get on pizzas!! Would highly recommend their house salad, too!! VERY GOOD!!

They say that they are rated the best pizza, but we were disappointed. We got the medium pizza with hamburger and onion. The sauce was very sweet. We can get a large pizza with a great salad at Cecil Whittaker's for the same price. Not impressed and wouldn't go back.

This is our favorite pizza place at the lake. The prices are great, the food is delicious (especially the seafood pizza), the staff is always friendly, and the view is gorgeous. I have a friend who always asks to meet here for lunch whenever she passes through town, and it doesn't matter if I was just there the day before, I'm happy to go again! : )
