Review: I absolutely love Risotteria! It would be heaven to live around the corner and have this as my local Italian joint. Everything I have ever had from this place tastes awesome, and celiac-friendly gluten free food abounds.
I have only been to the 270 Bleeker location so far, not the newer one on the Upper West Side. It is small and a bit crowded, but not in an off-putting way, more like rubbing elbows with your fellow diners. They greet you with yummy gluten free breadsticks when you arrive, and they make the whole gluten free experience entirely seamless. Above is a picture of the mushroom risotto, one of my favorite menu items. I have been to Risotteria a number of times, and I have never been disappointed. In fact, the place is so good that I have rerouted other activities in the city to be nearby.
Kids: The menu itself is very kid-friendly. They also have some cool and unique dessert items, such as a homemade, gluten free version of a Twinkie.
