La Risata @ Persiaran Ampang, KL


La Risata; located in the Ampang neighbourhood, is a restaurant that served authentic Italian cuisine. 


Dolce Vita (RM 19)
Illyquore, vanilla ice cream and dark rum


White bread with homemade olive sauce. The sauce is overloaded with healthy olive.


Antipasti Misti (RM 42)
The platter consists of grilled mushrooms, deep fried calamari rings, beef carpaccio, garlic crostini and chicken liver pate.


The pate was something addictive, velvetly smooth and flavourful. 


Insalata Dea / Goddess Salad (RM 22)
Lots or greens topped with slices of grilled chicken, croutons and creamy herbs dressing. However, the grilled chicken was a lil too dry to my liking. 


Zuppa di Pesce (RM 38 for half; RM 62 for whole)
Thick tomato soup that was not overly sour; and there were lots of prawns, squids, mussels, clams and fish swimming in this tomato sea. If you love seafood, this is the must to order. 


Here came the wood-fired oven baked pizza 
Pizza Carbonara (RM 28) was something new to me as I usually had only pasta carbonara. 
The pizza topped with beef bacon, mushrooms, and mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Thin crispy crust with charred edge. I know I am odd, but I really love the charred / burnt parts.


Pizza D' Anatra (RM 26)
Topped with smoked duck, rocket leaves, anchovy and mozzarella cheese


Gnocchi Ai Gamberi (RM 22)
Little potato dumplings and prawns sauteed in herb butter.
This was something I loved besides their pizza. These cute mini potato balls were really flavourful, chewy and fluffy inside encased by the crispy skin! Yummy!!! I really love this gnocchi! 


Spagherri Alla Risata (RM 35) was served piping hot in aluminium foil
Special, isn't it?! 


Stinco D' Agnello
Ahha, that's the wood fired oven braised lamb shank and drenched with fragrant rosemary sauce and served on a bed of mashed potato.


Zucotto (RM 18)
Liquor dome cake filled with chocolate and vanilla cream with almond, hazelnut and chocolate bits.


Tiramisu (RM 16)
Layers of savoiadi biscuits soaked in espresso and filled with Italian mascarpone cheese.


Crema Catalane Mapoletana (RM 16)
Trio of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry creme brulee were served warm and the caramelized sugar was perfectly done. Hmmm, the strawberry flavour left me an artificial taste, still love my creme brulee in original version :)


Panna Cotta (RM 12)
I never like panna cotta because those I had previously was kind of jelly-liked. La Risata's panna cotta has changed my impression towards panna cotta. It was silky smooth cream-mousse pudding that loaded with caramel sauce. 


I feel La Risata is a family-dining-out place; with everyone sitting at the huge square tables (just like what we can see from the photo); very well furnished and decorated to create a warmth feeling for family members to get-together. And of course, this is also another great place to chill out with the friends :)

Special thanks to Mr. Azaiiman for warmth invitation and Angeline for this lovely arrangement in the evening.

The place is a rip-off! If you order a glass of wine they will charge you RM 37++
