August 2016: THIS LOCATION IS CLOSED. This is my go to spot. I love this place and I'm so grateful for them!
Edit, 2016: WHYYYYY???!! COME BACK TO ME MY LOVEEEE!!! Original: My all-time fave gf restaurant!! Their breadsticks are nothing short of addictive, and their bolognese meatballs are a delicious appetizer. LOVEEEE all their pizza and panini, and their rissotto is all spectacular. Dessert-wise my faves are the tiramisu and red velvet cupcakes - but it's all to die for! Service is always top-notch - friendly, helpful, professional. All glutards must go.
Food was great but they are closed down.
Evidently both locations are now closed! I ate at the upper west side location this past summer and it was phenomenal. Just tried to visit Bleecker St. location and it's closed! So sad
They have an entire gluten-free menu. Great ciabatta sandwiches and breadsticks!
My favorite Gf restaurant ever. Wish I could visit NY more often. Brings tears to my eyes.
*****update 3/10/2016***** Sad to say that Risotteria announced they are now closed permanently. 😭 We enjoyed our meal here. I can see why there is usually a line! Not many tables and pretty much all is communal dining, so you might get closer to fellow diners than at other spots! We did not mind that, however! The gf breadsticks were lovely. My Son got the pizzette and enjoyed it while I got the mushroom/truffle risotto. It was quite good and had strong truffle flavor. We did not try dessert this time, but it looked good... Gf eclairs!
Old standby. Fantastic risotto and decent prices. The breadsticks are also addictive. Wish they had more tables.
GREAT place! Lots of options and they start you off with some amazing gluten free bread sticks they are giant! They have a ton of gluten free beer options too.
I treasure this very little gem so much
Very tasty risotto! The most coeliac friendly restaurant I've ever been to! Tiny place so be prepared to wait.
Best GF pizza!!!!!
Delicious risotto and tres leches cake! Thank you for a fantastic evening!
Amazing food. So many gluten free options. Heaven for those with gf allergies.
Best gf restaurant ever. No CC and amazing food
Love it all!!!!!
The GF breadsticks were absolutely mind blowing! Tiny, tiny space, but big time food and delicious GF choices.
Delicious pizza and GF breadsticks! Read more: http://glutenfreecarolinagirl.com/2014/11/18/gluten-free-at-risotteria/
This is a wonderful find. Gluten free bread on the table was yummy and my son loved that everything on the menu had a GF option. It was a great neighborhood restaurant-we wish there were one closer to home.
The best gf pizza this side of Italy. The crust is thin, crispy and tasty. It is definitely not toppings on cardboard.
Amazing amazing amazing! Just go!
Worst food ever!! Not sure why this place is getting 5 star reviews. Will never go back and would never recommend this nasty place. This place doesn't even deserve the one star I am forced to give in order to add this review.
Outstanding gf breadsticks, meatballs, pizza and risotto. Great service. Highly recommend this place!
Nothing but bliss if you're gluten-intolerant.
Excellent glutenfree menu! Great food!
They cater to gluten free with options for non gluten-free customers. I felt very valued and the food was delicious!
I want to live above this restaurant and eat all of their desserts all the time. I love everything about this place!!! Best celiac resto ever!!!
Amazing place! Waitress was welcoming and explained the menu fully. Help us choose the right dish. Best GF Italian Resturant I have ever been to. Worth going to!
It's not often you walk into a restaurant to find almost everything on the menu is gluten free! There are even a choice of beers and the food is delicious! Well worth eating here.
I have to admit it is very exciting to be in an Italian restaurant and not have to worry about cross-contamination and they are great about other food allergies, but the risotto was a little hard and given that it's their namesake I expected better. Still very happy here and would recommend checking it out.
Hands down BEST GLUTEN FREE ITALIAN I HAVE EVER HAD!!!! If you are in NYC you MUST eat here!!!!!
Breadsticks, paninis, pizza, beer... What more could you want?
Really careful about all allergies. Breadsticks are amazing, risotto, pizza and desserts are pretty good. Atmosphere is way too loud and crowded.
It is a mostly gluten free Italian restaurant- a little small but very tasty
Great food and friendly service. Extensive gluten-free beer list and dessert menu. The lamb, Gorgonzola & spinach risotto is heaven!
I went here with my friend last night. It feels amazing to look at a menu where 95% of it is gluten free. I had the waitress recommend a gf beer. It was called Estrella and it tasted like normal beer. I got a gf panini and the bread was amazing. Almost every single risotto dish was gf. We also got the chocolate tiramisu... EVERYTHING on the dessert menu is gf. Everything. It's incredible to go to a place and not worry if the staff is really knowledgable about gf. They totally get it, obviously. I highly recommend this place to anyone. Gf or not. Definitely want to go again and again.
INCREDIBLE experience! They give you delicious gluten free breadsticks to start, the service was fantastic, and the meal was great! I had a panini which I highly recommend! I also tried two desserts and loved both of them. Although I haven't purchased any of them, the restaurant sells packaged items (ie croutons and baked goods mixes).
Yummy gluten free breadsticks! Also a huge selection of gf beers. I got a gf panini and loved it. Attentive and knowledgable staff. Very good experience.
Amazing selection, almost everything on the menu is GF. They even have a Belgian beer that is GF. So thrilled!
This place is a gem! Gluten free options abound- tons of gf pastries, and beer. Risotto was fantastic
Breadsticks are great they have tons of gluten free options and beers and desserts! The risotto was not good though, very bland and just nothing to rave about. Ate there with three other people we all ordered different things and all felt te same way. Would go back to try the desserts
My favorite place in the world
Exceptional everything is gluten free! Pizza in the city that gluten freers can enjoy!
Excellent place that caters to the gluten free clientele. This place has character, crowds and great risotto. I always buy a few bags of their bread sticks to take home when I go there. A must place to go in NYC.
Food is ok but the desserts are amazing !
The breadsticks were OK, but it was refreshing just to be able to eat them so I didn't mind. Selection of GF is awesome, and of course the food is good. Worth the wait and elbow knocking with strangers, to know that you are definitely not getting sick tonight. And eating well!!
Incredible options, beer selection and more. Awesome location, cafe-like vibe.
Such a great find! So many great menu items to choose from! Gluten free panini? Never thought I'd have one of those again! The breadsticks are great also!
Amazing, this place is a gem, gluten free bread sticks right off the bat and a plethora of options. As an app the calamari and white bean was amazing . A must visit for your NYC gluten free trip.
Worth the wait! Tiny restaurant that doesn't take reservations but their food is amazing. "Bread sticks" are fantastic, as is the risotto and cupcake for dessert. So nice to have a restaurant where almost everything is safe to eat.
Really good gf breadsticks!
GF breadsticks? Um, more please! Great place to eat.
Awesome place! Great people ! Great food! Great service! I had the best experience ever! Please try the carrot cake! Awesome!
addicted to gf pizza and meatballs.
Nothing to say but it's awesome and I love that they serve Green's beer!
Gf heaven. My party shared the portobello risotto and a thin crust gf pizza and had gf red velvet cupcakes for dessert. Everything was awesome.
Way overpriced but quality isn't forgotten. No reservations & rushing staff. GF beers & desserts available. At your wallet's risk...
They have a delicious new deep dish pizza on the menu. It was great! Cheesy, doughy, everything I miss about pizza. I'm not a fan of the flat as cardboard gf options out there. Risotto is good here too. Minus 1 star because its so expensive.
Expensive, but delicious gf panini! I would give this place 5 stars but the astronomical prices cost a star.
Finally! A place that makes having celiac worth it! Everything tastes like it is not gluten free and they prepare the food fast. They have the best bread sticks and cupcakes. I never leave there hungry.
Awesome breadsticks! Great GF food!!
luv me some g free. and the luv me at Risotteria. I literally hugged the staff on the way out. they get GF
one of the first and best in gf in nyc. a legend. not to be missed.
Breadsticks were amazing!!! Food was exceptional!!!!
Breadsticks and meatballs! It's heaven :)
Great food! Recommend for dairy free too!
Good, but pricy.
This place is wonderful and SO GF friendly
Love it here because they care & you can get good food, with options. You can ask for dairy free on most, but the breadsticks used to be better...maybe just bad bread stick night. Beers & wine choices, but mostly...they were there when no one else was...& have maintained a semblance of consistency.
Excellent treatment of gf. Not so many options were dairy-free, which was disheartening. Really, I didn't think it was very good risotto. It was okay. But, then, we're food snobs, so you might love it. Still, I'd rather head a few blocks over to Souen (macrobiotic) or around the corner to Home (great but pricey). If you do go, get a drink at the Blind Tiger Ale House across the street, who started carrying Green's at my request ;)
had dinner here Saturday night. wasn't expecting the best meal but was pleasantly surprised. the food was superb. Being new to the gluten free lifestyle, this is a great find. dont be afraid to take your friends, you will not miss the gluten.
