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

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
