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.

“Great pizza”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Pizza was really good. Thin flakey crust and sauce is the sweet style. We had sausage pizza, big chunks of spicey Italian sausage and lots of cheese. My son had mostacciloi and it was delicious. Very cheesy and sauce was very good. The garlic biscuits they bring were yummy too. The salad is quite good too, ceasear style with lots of Parmesan cheese. We ate outside on the deck with a nice view of the lake. Service was good. Although I ordered the wings as my main dish and they came out before everything else. They were good, Italian style, not spicey maybe a bit thick on the coating but quite tasty. I would go back. Tall draft beers wer 4.25 not bad.

“Awesome Pizza”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

We ate here after a long day on the lake. We tried the Italian chicken wings, which were an interesting idea, but not necessarily that great. The breading came out kind of doughy. The pizza, however, more than made up for it. They let you do half and half as long as the two halves have the same sauce. We did half supreme and half Hawaiian. Delicious! The service was also fast and friendly. All in all, a great experience.

“Great food”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We always eat here when we come down to The Lodge of Four Seasons resort. We sat outside on the patio and just watched boats go by on the lake while we ate.

“This is a great dive”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Great place for good food, and also a good place to watch a Cards game with some beer and hot wings. This place is a staple for our groups that regularly stay at the Lodge of Four Seasons because it is just up the road from the Lodge and has good service and food.
