We were here for a birthday party. Typically I lower the bar when food is made in large quantities, especially where chicken is concerned. Well it was all excellent! Definitely worth considering next time I am planning a small event. A special shout out to Marcelo the manager who went above and beyond to ensure everyone's needs were met.

Came back here because of an outstanding experience the last time. (See review of May 2016) This time we had the Gamberetti Agru Dolce and Kale Salad for appetizers. Both good with the shrimps exceptionally flavourful. The mains of Lamb Ossobucco and Pollo Supreme added to our experience as they were both very good. We finished with an excellent crème... More

The restaurant offers a homey ambiance. The tables may be a bit close to each other that you can almost hear the convos from another table when it is full. Service is great and food is really tasty. Not cheap of course. 100 CAD for 2 with 2 main courses ,soup, dessert and a beer. Tax of 16% is included... More

We like this Restaurant..as it offers a wide selection of daily specials, appetizers, mains and they serve a good pizza. Service is attentive and informative. We've been there for lunch and dinner..both visits were to our satisfaction. We will be back!!

Recently visited La Risata Ristorante for dinner and had a wonderful experience. Waiter was excellent, service was outstanding and the food/wine options plentiful and resonable. It was first visit and won't be my last. Lots of food options to choose from on the menu and the wine list has both regular priced wines to choose from and some really nice... More

We went to celebrate a birthday at this restaurant with a few family members and several of us got very sick after eating the food at La Risata restaurant! To make matters worse, we spoke to the Manager, Vince and this person took no responsibility and didn't even apologize about our bad experience! Please don't eat at this restaurant if... More

Had a small dinner meeting on a Thursday night with a colleague. It was quiet enough to discuss business but they were attentive as well. Loved the Goat Cheese Salad and the Roasted Halibut. My colleague had Bison Ribs and she loved them too. My only complaint was the kitchen closed early at 9:00 pm so we were a bit... More

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
