Sing low, so no one hears you and sing high, making me cry
I hear something when wrapped in your arms…
An Italian song of love.
Humming the Tina Arena key……
An Italian dinner has always been a romantic activity vividly portrayed in my thoughts. Sitting by the red bricks bar, sipping your favourite Vino da Tavola & sinking a small bite onto the cheesy Quattro Formaggi while whispering excitedly into each others ears……
Sounded ideal to you?
Let’s do some casual Italian dining!
La Risata which means “The Laughter” is a cosy place to be for dating couples, groups of friends and even family dining. Sleek bar with red bricks & unfinished walls gave the rustic ambiance as well as a casual dining experience. Still standing strong after more than a dozen years, La Risata at Medan Damansara is always upgrading itself to cater patrons needs.
Let’s begin with some White bread & homemade olive sauce
You’ll tend to have more bread as you just can’t forego their olive sauce
