Attended a bridal shower here so we had the whole place to ourselves. It was a set menu but whatever the hosts ordered was great. A chicken Marsala type dish but stuffed with cheese and peppers I think. The side potatoes were fantastic!

I would like to start with the service. It was very good and attentive because we were the only table occupied during our stay in mid-week last month. La Risata brands itself a fine dining and banquet establishment. But we did not find the food served at a standard we normally expect from a good restaurant, for example the fried... More

Another voucher but this time, we'll be back.. $ 49 for 3 courses each. At this quality, great value. Appetizers were very good; fresh Kale Goat Cheese Salad (baby kale, pecans, beets in a citrus dressing) and a delicious, well cooked Capesante (bay scallops with a fig balsamic and lemon zest glaze). Mains were good too. Perfectly cooked 3 lamb... 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 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
