Had supper there on a Saturday. Busy place. Great service and great Cajun Shrimp Alfredo. Got pizza to go on Sunday night and it was OK, not great. Kind of expensive.

We had a wonderful time here! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back for the gluten free pizza in the future.

This place has delicious food and an awesome view of the lake! Not lake front, if that's what you're looking for, it sits high on a cliff overlooking the lake with a beautiful view! They don't just have pizza, which is what some of our...More

Packed house at 6 pm. Traditional salad still the best. Wonderful Italian food and solid wine list. We've lived it for 25+ years.

They have a huge menu with great Italian choices. They don't skimp on the size of your order, you will need a to-go box. Try the Fettuccine Alfredo or the Cajun Linguine. They have a good kid's menu and often have live entertainment. The wait...More

Had an early dinner here on a Saturday and the food was decent. I had Chicken Spedini, which was a large piece of chicken rather than a skewer of smaller chunks as I'm used to. The taste was good, but lacked the crumbs to meat...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.
