Very average

We have dined here twice using a Groupon. But for the Groupon, these experiences would not have been very good at all. The food is average and in fact the last time, my wife's steak was served rare when it was ordered medium. The chef came out to say that, according to the temperature, the steak... read more

We went to La Risata this weekend using a Groupon. The staff was very welcoming when we entered and showed us to a nice seat. They gave us the Groupon special menu and asked if we would like something to drink. They let us try the House wine before ordering which I thought was nice. Two of us ordered the... More

We used vouchers to try La Risata ....glad I did. We were greeted at reception by the owner Vince who, graciously seated us as he was advised that we were voucher patrons. I always think that a voucher customer may get somewhat of a diminished service but this was certainly not the case at La Risata. Yes there is a... More

The owner is always very gracious and the wait staff friendly and efficient. The food has always been amazing. Tonight i had the... More

I ended up here due to a groupon purchased by my wife. The ambiance was okay while the service was good and prompt. No complaints there. The food unfortunately was an absolute bust. My appetizer was buffalo mozzeralla with bresola. It was well presented on the plate and excitedly dove in. What a total flop. The first slices of bresola... More

They’re trying to give off an impression of a high-end restaurant but with their service and food quality... there’s a long long way to go. I purchased Groupon dinner for 2 includes 1 appetizer, 2 entrees & 1 dessert. The value of the coupon is totally over stated but the worst part is they added tips to the bill (by... More

Restaurant decor was ok - nothing special but not too bad. Didnt really like the food - the bruschetta tastswas a little stale and very little toppings and the appatizer that my mom ordered left alot to be desired (supposed to include mushrooms in a reduction sauce, but it was basically undercooked mushrooms in beef broth). They told us that... More
