La Risata serves up traditional wood-fired pizzas in a setting that is as authentically Italian as you can get out of Italy. True to Italian style, it’s all about the flavour at La Risata; there are no fancy flourishes or immaculately arranged platings. The menu offers an extensive array of pizza toppings - from various meat or fish options that you can generously pile on your range of both white and red pizzas, all of which have an ultra-thin crust for optimal crunch.

This restaurant is great for its service and definitely value for money as it focuses on simplicity, authenticity and only quality imported ingredients are used. Owned by Edoardo Guerrini and executive chef Olivari Vanni, the pair refuses to sacrifice the quality of their dishes and therefore the restaurant’s menu is subject to change according to the availability of ingredients. We simply love their classic Napoletana which is ultimately flavourful.

This place is such a hot spot as it is permanently busy. Quivo’s paddle board pizzas are wonderful for sharing with irresistible toppings and flavour-packed slices. The pizza base is light but doesn’t dominate. The toppings are also very well-seasoned as there is nothing worse than biting into a pizza slice that’s bland. Do expect for excellent service, wonderful ambiance and outstanding food.

Proof serves excellent pizzas with a nice twist to them - wonderful sourdough bases. The pizzas have a wonderful aroma of smokiness from the oven, the sourdough crust is crispy yet fluffy on the inside, and each pizza is generously topped with quality ingredients.

Their pizzas are delicious simply because copious toppings of meat and vegetables are combined beautifully on a well-baked dough that is neither overcooked nor undercooked, yet stiff enough to carry the toppings without hurting your teeth. You can also opt for pesto sauce base instead of the ordinary tomato sauce.
