My regular place for weekend time with friends. To say anything less about la risata in Medan Damansara is consistently good is the only words what justify their commitment. Chef kumar has been in the industry for a good 15 years and it shows. Food is always good, tasty, comforting and the price justifies what you order. Don't expect to... More

While I wouldn't call the food here 100% authentic Italian, the menu is very good and full of comfort dishes. Pizzas are especially good. They also have an outlet in Ampang.

We arrived at the restaurant around 12.30pm and there were only 2 groups of customers in the restaurant.Service was great and food was awesome except for the Squid & Prawn Pasta in Black Ink(too salty)... and there were flies in the restaurant!We had to request for them to place candles on our tables.

We went there for lunch......on a holiday, with 3 kids. Loved the food there. Would especially recommend the turkey ham pizza. Both our pizzas were yummy. The pasta was acceptable. The chocolate bomb was bittery sweet perfect. Will surely go back 🙂

I've been here 3 times and will go back again for sure. They have really good pizzas here. The pastas are a little more hit or miss. I'm a huge fan of lasagna and the one here is between OK and good. They do have a recommended dish that's like a ravioli with seafood filling. That was below average in... More

It's a 2-feet long pizza with 5 different types of flavour: - Smoked turkey with homemade orange marmalade... More
