This is a great small restaurant if you go there two people. If you're 3, they'll squeeze you at a table for 2. If you ask why they will rudely tell that it's the policy. They also take only one type of payment, for example if one of you would like to pay cash and the rest w a card, they will not accept that. Their risotto is great, gluten free food really good.. But the last two experience we had there weren't nice. So would I go back? No.

because the tables are so close together it's impossible to carry-on a conversation or enjoy your meal because it seems like you're sitting in the lap of the person seated next to you. And, the noise -- that very, very loud background music -- makes you want to eat quickly and get out of the place as fast as you can. The food is good but overpriced. The staff and service is efficient and timely. Maybe the next time will be better.

Always a pleasure to eat here since they are so accommodating and have a plethora of GF items to choose from. They also have pretty reasonably priced wine. Always eager to go back here and always happy that my sister can enjoy a meal worry free :D

As a celiac, you don't get to have pizza very often. When you do, it's a treat, even when it's not very good. However, at Risotteria, you dont have to compromise quality for your your pizza cravings. It's not just the pizza that is FANTASTIC! The bread sticks are AWESOME! The risotto is FABOLOUS! All in all: great.

I haven't had pizza this good in such a long time! True, the price is steep, but for a celiac, it doesn't disappoint. The bread sticks are to die for!

As a newly diagnosed celiac, I had quickly grown tired of my own failed pizza experiments. I broke down and paid $19 for a personal shrimp and gruyere cheese wheat-free pizza, which in my estimation was DIVINE. I must have inhaled it! I haven't tried the risotto, and from the reviews here, it looks like I made the right move. Anyway, the pizza was soooo worth the trip. While I waited for the pizza, the waitstaff brought out these wonderful hot-out-of the-oven breadsticks, which were just melt-in-your-mouth good. I was delighted while I read my book and was doted on by my servers. Here's the rub: the atmosphere is confusing in that its not congruent with the type of food they serve. Risotteria is set up like a diner with tight seating and super loud fun music. The thing is, their menu is not made up of diner food, but of gourmet pizzas and risotto, which is more like brasserie food. I think the reason I inhaled my food so quickly was in part because it was so delicious, but also because Elvis blasting in the background instinctively makes you eat faster. The service, which was excellent by the way (kind, well informed, accomodating) also responds to the music, by rushing you along. I don't think they're aware they do this. Again, the music! So, in my humble opionion - two thumbs up for the food, but not the place for an intimate or long discussion on say, War and Peace.

I went to Risotteria with my friend yesterday. We ordered the three-mushroom risotto and the risotto with chicken and zucchini. Both were bland and tasted like oatmeal or porridge. The breadsticks were really good, but after that, everything went downhill. VERY underwelming. We are SO not going back.
