Bob on La Risata

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... read more

Had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant last night. Meet one of my friends here to catch up on our lives and have some laughs. What a splendid place we found! Terrific food, ambiance, and the wait staff is amazing. Always attentive but in a way that left us free to chat and not feel rushed. We will return... 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

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

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 had been cooked medium.... More
