Besides pizza, i always love ordering the capellini to black with seafood which is angel hair pasta with prawn, squid and roasted cherry tomatoes in a squid ink sauce. Really delicious and simple pasta dish. 
Didn't quite like the chicken stew with oil and capers that is a Free range chicken braised with olives, capers, onion and tomato served with roasted vegetables. 

and lastly, washing down the meal with a glass of Long Island Iced Tea : Gordon's gin, Matusalem Platino white rum, Skyy vodka, Jose Cuervo Gold tequila, triple sec & lemon juice topped with coke!

La Risata has been around for quite awhile offering good Italian dishes. The overall deco of this place is casual & warm. Great for group gatherings or even a romantic night out. As you walk in you get the appetising aromas of wood fired pizzas. Only downside would be the parking which can be a pain.
When it comes to the food I have tried quite a few dishes so far. Starting the meal with the complimentary olive tapenade with freshly baked fluffy bread which is so addictive. Yummy appetisers would be the Antipasti Misti (grilled mushroom, fried calamari rings, beef carpaccio, garlic crostini w/ chicken liver pate) & Gnocchi Al Gameberi. For mains try the Pappardelle Al Ragu D’Agnello, Gnocchi Al Peperonchini Grillia E Chorizo & Ravioli di Frutti di Mare. Or if you have a hankering for steak their Grilled US Angus grain fed tenderloin is pretty decent.
However avoid the Risotto Nero Di Seppia which was too wet for my liking & the Spaghetti Alla Risata which was just too salty. Unfortunately have not tried any desserts. Am always too full after the mains. Heard the panna cotta & Sicilian Bombe are good. As for drinks they have interesting cocktails, a decent sangria & a good wine list. Their coffee is not bad as well to cap the night.
Service is a hit & a miss. When busy it would be hard to get the waiters attention & food might arrive late. However on normal occasions they are okay. Nothing that would stop you from frequenting this place.

After trying their starters and mains, it was time for desserts. We were quite full so we had 2 desserts to share among 4 of us.

Panna Cotta with strawberry sauce
But this would definitely be my pick. The panna cotta was textbook perfect with a telltale wobble when it hits the table. Creamy and smooth, complemented by the slightly tangy strawberry sauce. I enjoyed this very much.

So the desserts have indeed saved the day! Will I return to La Risata? Probably not likely given there are still plenty of Italian restaurants for me to check out, but overall the visit was pleasant enough. By the way, they do have a good selection of wine and beers too.

Pollo Facito

Very lovely presented was the deep fried chicken breast stuffed with ricotta and spinach. Sounds like my kind of dish! Considering it was chicken breast, I was surprised how juicy and tender the meat was. The spinach stuffing was my favourite part. Light flavours perfectly executed.

Spaghetti Alla Risata: Mixed seafood in a hearty tomato sauce & baked in foil

This is definitely a comfort dish. The seafood was sufficiently fresh and the pasta sauce has a great depth of flavour with a touch of ocean. We took a little too long to get to the dish though so the pasta has softened a little bit by the time we tried it. But nonetheless pretty good pasta dish.

Wood fired oven roasted beef ribs in a reduction of red wine sauce on a bed of mashed potato

And here comes the red meat! I am kinda on a no red meat diet so only tried a little bit of this. The meat wasn’t tender enough for my liking but the mash was good. I think the brown sauce is also a little one dimensional for me. But my lunch companion enjoyed it.

Stinco D’Agnello: Wood fired oven braised lamb shank in a rosemary sauce on a bed of
mashed potato

Hahaha what does Stinco mean in Italian? Anyone knows? I'm not a fan of lamb and this lamb shank was quite gamey although the meat was quite tender. The brown sauce looked and tasted very similar to the beef dish though.

Pizza Frutti Di Mare Mixed Seafood, garlic, basil, tomato & mozzarella

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of their pizzas because the crust was too fragile to handle. Basically it just breaks into small pieces when we try to get a piece out. Otherwise, the toppings tasted alright.

Pizza Vegetali RM27 – Grilled eggplant, roasted cherry tomato, pinenut, pesto, ricotta cheese, tomato & mozzarella.

To cater for the vegetarian (Frank) we had the Pizza Vegetali which had a pesto base. It was much too oily for his liking though. Also, same problem with the fragile crust.

So will the dessert be good enough to save the day? Stay tuned!

La Risata has been on my radar for a while because they have been nominated several times in the Timeout KL awards. The branch at Medan Damansara is also very convenient for us to get to. Situated right next to Vintry, this place has a lovely ambiance with attentive service staff. They offer a good range of Italian delights to suit everyone's tastes. And once we placed our orders.

The Olive Tapenade was made well with good fruity flavour, perfect topping for the fluffy bread.

Before long, our platter of very impressive starters arrived on our table.

Carppaccio di manzo, frittura di calamari, funghi alla griglia & pate di fegatini con crostini

What a sight to behold! The aroma of the sauteed mushrooms and fried calamari rings hit my nose first. But it was that liver pate that attracted my attention straightaway. Indeed. It was rich, creamy with that signature metallic taste I love and paired so well with the garlic crostini (the crostini themselves were tasty enough, I mean, just look at the luscious golden hue!

The beef carppaccio was tender and with a touch of Parmigiano-Reggiano and raw mushrooms, this was an explosion of flavours. I didn’t mind the fried calamari rings, they were cooked well and quite tender. The mushrooms were also lovely with a hint of herbaceous note. Delicious.

这个墨鱼汁意大利面味道很好吃,虽然乌漆麻黑的不过意大利面丝毫没有腥味。配料里面的虾子虽然只有三个,不过都很大一个,而且都是新鲜弹牙的。鱿鱼也是很新鲜,吃起来不会很硬

这个鸡肉卷味道味道很棒。鸡肉的虽然没有经过什么特别的腌制,不过由于里面的馅料都很有味道,所以鸡肉没有什么味道也没有关系。外皮炸到很酥脆,鸡肉有一点硬了,这个有一点可惜

出了蘑菇汤,我自己对南瓜汤还是很感兴趣的。这个南瓜汤味道很浓郁,加入了奶油显得更加的顺滑可口。味道不会很咸,都有很天然的南瓜香味,汤头的质感不会很稀释,也不会太浓稠

这个在意大利餐里面就是所谓的马铃薯饺子。当然里面是没有馅料的啦。份量很少很少,但是味道很好。马铃薯表层脆脆的,里面很柔软呢。表面有着一层很香的牛油味道。另外还有弹牙新鲜的虾子呢。

如果说要吃到好味道有正宗的意大利餐,我绝对会选择这里。这里不仅环境优雅,食物水准也高。价钱相对也比较高啦。和朋友来到这里聚餐,首先就点一份前菜。我们选择了这个Antipasti Misti。里面的食材很丰富,面包,虾子,鸡肝酱,鱿鱼,香菇芝士等等。个人特别钟爱鸡肝酱配蒜茸面包。

又是carbonara了。算算我也总算吃过了很多形形色色的carbonara了。而我的要求也很简单,就是酱汁一点也不能马虎。最起码浓度适中,味道实在。而这里的spaghetti alla carbonara做到了这两点。软硬适中的意大利面埋藏着香浓白汁的味道。加上味道吸引人的牛肉培根,为这料理增色不少。

这里的环境非常优美,虽然说确实是比较隐蔽,可是为了美食付出再多也无所谓况且兜兜转转之后找到的东西会变得无比珍贵。我点了一道蒜烤蘑菇给自己当开胃菜。看外观蒜茸真的蛮多但是并不影响蘑菇本身独有的味道。吃起来带有咸味,好像海绵似的蘑菇吸取了蒜头的味道,吃起来很开胃。
