Risata Pizza to open Dec. 15 in Greer

Menu includes a 'Really Big Meatball' and tempting specialty pies


Risata Pizza, the first Neapolitan pizzeria in the Upstate, has announced its opening day will be Dec. 15 via its Facebook page. Risata is located at 111 Middleton Way in Greer.

Owner Joe Gilman also posted the pizzeria’s menu, and it’s looking like a drive to Greer might not be too far of a drive for some authentic Italian pie, baked in an 800-plus-degree, wood burning oven.

For starters, there’s the Really Big Meatball ($10), Whipped Gorgonzola Bruschetta ($6) and a charcuterie board ($12).

Specialty pies include the more traditional Margherita di Bufala, $12, (San Marzano tomato, bufala mozzarella, basil, romano) and Prosciutto y Arugula, $14, (San Marzano tomato, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, fresh arugula and romano). And then there’s the tempting Fig & Pig, $13, (fig preserves, candied bacon, fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, balsamic reduction and mint).

The menu also includes create-your-own pies, sandwiches, a wide variety of salads with house-made dressings and traditional Italian desserts — cannoli, ricotta cheesecake and gelato or sorbetto.

Risata will be open Wednesday-Friday, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-9 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
