We've had lunch here a number of times. The menu is inventive and caters to ""special"" groups - vegetarians, people with gluten intolerance etc...but the food isn't compromised at all, quite the reverse - it's excellent. Delicious fresh salads, hot crusty bread sticks - tasty pasta and risotto. Service was efficient but not intrusive or hurried. I would definitely eat here again - although I'm not sure I'd wait 45 minutes to do so (as some reviewers have).

I was so excited about going there because I am a BIG FAN of risotto... well, food was good. I loved their bread stick and quality of dish. I was absolutely disappointed about their service. Our table was almost completely ignored unless we try to yell or keep raising arms up for attention. We often felt one of the waiter was grumpy at us for nothing and rushed us out for no line waiting tables.

As the other reviewers have mentioned, the restaurant is very small and tightly packed and the wait was long (45 minutes). However, once we were seated the service was excellent and the food was delicious. We ordered the risotto with shrimp and the thick crust pizza. The risotto was absolutely yummy but the pizza was just okay. Next time I go back, I'll stick to the risotto. My bf ordered the gluten-free beer and loved it! He had the biggest grin while drinking the beer. The brownies were so good! We'll definitely come back to this place again.
I dined with folks who have no allergies or aversions to gluten, and we still thoroughly enjoyed the place. The wait staff was very attentive and made great food and wine recommendations. My favorite risotto is the one with parma ham, fontina and argula. My mouth waters even as I type it.

This is a fine place which has made a name for itself as a destination for people allergic to gluten.I never knew gluten was a big problem , but apparently there is a gluten-free market in New York (of course). No matter, I would highly recommend Risotteria to all regardless of their gluten tolerance. Their menu is authentic and inventive. It's obvious it was carefully planned. Also, their ingredients are superb. From the quality of the rice, to the excellence of the sauces and meats to the bread used in preparing their wonderful paninni. There is an obvious insistence on high quality. They serve pizza and nice salads too. Rissoteria is really a cut above that must be experienced to be appreciated.

My daughter has wheat and gluten alergies and really missed eating out because of all the issues with food preparation. Risotteria is amazing for so many reasons that I can't even begin to write them down. The BEST reason is that we can eat out in a restaurant again and have pizza! The pizzas and breadsticks are absolutely delicious. The waitstaff is friendly and engaging. Even the patrons share conversations across different tables. We all trade stories about our gluten free experiences. The dining experience here is amazing because it gives back what you were missing when you have gluten allergies. My daughter and I are frequent visitors now for the food, the company, and the experience.

i can go out for pizza! like a regular person!
i also like to take an order of breadsticks home with me. i can't know how i?d feel about this place if i didn?t have a special diet , and i've never tried their risotto, but i adore this restaurant. (and maybe i'm blinded by my love for this place, but the servers i've had have all seemed perfectly nice.)
