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.

Our first night at Lake of the Ozarks brought us to this restaurant due to close proximity to the resort. We had a meaty pizza that was a little “greasy” because of the meats on the pie. Overall, it was o.k. for a quick, last minute dining decision.

Pizza was delicious. Thin crust, but the toppings were loaded up. Side salad was great and was very generous portion. Pasta dishes are large portions as well. Must try when in the Lake area!

Energetic, vibrant venue. My 10 inch thin pizza was really good. Others at table had pastas with alfredo and shrimp that was a little lacking in flavor. Great menu selections and great location.

One of my favorite Italian places to eat. The have gluten free penne pasta that is delicious with their meat sauce. I highly recommend it. I always try to eat here when I come to town. They have a great selection of delicious pasta dishes.
