We are fortunate and live fairly close to the Lil Rizzos location on HH. Sometimes we will call in and pick it up (which is awesome) and sometimes we will eat at the restaurant. We have never been disappointed by either choice. The service is...More

While this is an Italian restaurant with great pizza and pasta, you've got to try the wings! We always get the original and make them "filthy" (they run them through the pizza oven a couple of time so they come out nice and crisp.) Add...More

Visited last night! The wait was 30 min but definitely worth it. Best pizza I've ever had! The sauce was so unique. The people were nice. The pizza was cut into squares..... but I'll get over it ;)

Super Italian food. We had the portobello mushrooms as an appetizer (awesome flavor), veal, chicken speidini, beef & pork pasta. The house Zinfandel was crisp and delicious. Wonderful flavours and service. Good ambience too. A must visit for a fine Italian meal

Went here on a Tuesday for happy hour. .45 cent wing night. Their Italian wings are amazing and a must! Had a dinner salad as well which all was plenty. Just remodeled and it looks great! I will be back!

Great restaurant! Enjoyed the best lasagna I've ever eaten! Assistant manager Megan checked on our table and was super friendly and sincerely cares about the customers experience. Acoustic music playing in the background added to the ambiance. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

After a good day's start shopping at the Outlet Mall, there's nothing better than grabbing some good grub at Rizzo's. We vary between their great selection of salads, pizza, or spaghetti. We've been steady customers for years and always enjoy it. Food quality is always...More

It was a regular menu item many years ago. We have not run it as a special in some time. Perhaps we should, I'll discuss with the staff. Thanks for the question.

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.
