Terrific lunch spot

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 have a gluten allergy. Everytime I go to Ny I go here for Pizza. Best gluten free pizza I have ever had

Good food, poor service

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.

Delicious risotto

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.



Cute place; great food

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.

Great food and high quality.

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.

You might have guessed that their specialty is risotto. It was hot, healthy, and delicious. Casual place with casual prices in a friendly atmosphere. Fabulous




A great place to go if you are avoiding Gluten. The GF pizza is UNBELIEVABLE!! A little pricey but If you have an allergy to gluten paying a little extra for pizza is worth it!

WOOO-HOOO!!! Gluten-free pizza and breadsticks.

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.

yay for gluten-free happiness!

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.)

Original and great risotto!

The restaurant is very small, so the wait tends to be long and they don't take reservations. But the wait is definitely worth it. The food is great with original types of risotto, the service is always friendly and the prices are affordable. Dishes are simple and don't come with a lot, only risotto and the breadsticks on the table, but the flavors are unique enough to stand on their own.

Great Regular and Gluten-Free Food!

My wife is celiac and we have eaten here many times. The Risotto is always perfect. Don't believe the negative reviews - service, food prep, etc. are fine. You have to wait as it is very small but they will take your cell and call you when ready. Go to a bar and have a drink! Pizzas are really good and different. GF products (breaksticks, cookies, etc.) are wonderful and they have a few different GF beers available.

I have to Agree with all the negative Posts

The risotto was undercooked, the horrible wine was overpriced and although the service was good, the risotto was pretty tasteless and the food matters the most. The atmosphere also did not make up for the overpriced and pretty terrible food. I can't believe I spent $60 for dinner here. Definitely not recommended.

I don't even know where to start! I brought a friend from out of town and was completely embarassed. First we were told the wait was 10-15 minutes and then FORTY-FIVE minutes later we finally sat down. Our waitress was extremely rude and completely unprofessional. She dropped off utensils that were still soaking wet (so gross). We had to ask three times for water. And then every time she dropped off glasses or plates she would drop it down extremely hard on the glass table and just walk away. It completely ruined our dining experience. Even though I enjoyed their risotto many times in the past, this experience made me decide that I would never go back again. Do not waste your money here.

Great Gluten Free and Regular Food

Found a listing about this place online and decided to check it out while in NYC for the weekend. I have been GF for a little over a year and have not found a lot of really tasty options - this place is fabulous! I ordered GF pizza & GF beer, and shared GF breadsticks & GF dessert with my husband - I was STUFFED but it was worth it. It felt so great to eat ""normal"" food again. My hubby ordered regular panini and GF beer. He thought the panini was a little tough, but overall very good food. It is a little pricey (but most GF foods are...) and cramped, so it's best to hit it at off-peak times and be prepared to treat yourself. :) They are starting a mailorder/internet service soon, so maybe those of us outside of NYC can special order the GF foods! Yum!!

I went here on a saturday night and it was moderately crowded and i was there for my birthday and i ordered the gruyere and green onion risotto and the olive puree pizza which tasted better than traditional sauce and cheese pizza and then afterwards everyone should take a walk to magnolia's

Simple is the best

A cozy small space with friendly waiters. Food is always excellent and inexpensive.
Don't stay there too long because people are waiting at the bar. Just enjoy eat and go!

Wonderful Food - Gluten Free or Not

My wife needs a gluten free diet and this is the best GF food she has found. The rest of the family loved the regular pizza and it reminded me of the kind I could only find in Rome.
The space is cramped and the prices are rather high, from a New Orleans viewpoint, but we enjoyed the food and found the service to be friendly and helpful. It's also in a great neighborhood which just begs to be strolled through.

Worst Restaurant Experience in 6 years

I was in the restaurant with my GF last Fri., not so many customers at that night. we ordered 2 cokes, 1 pizza, 1 special risotto add calamari(remember, it's ""add"").
After I had some of my coke then I noticed there is a lipstick print on my glass. I call the waiter, and you know what he did? he didn't give me a new one, he only swith my coke to another glass!
Second, my risotto is coming only with calamari(remember ""add""), the waiter never say sorry and repeat ""you said you want add calamari...""?
OK, forget all above, we just want eat something, so we kept the wrong order and asking for pepper, finally he brought a piece of ""PAPER"" to us.
This is the worst experience for 6 yrs in new york. stupid and rude waiter, nothing care manager...

Undercooked Rice for 13 dollars

I've only ordered delivery from this place, but what you get is undercooked rice for 13 dollars, plus they charge you a delivery fee. Never again!!
