My sister and I have been going to Risotteria for a couple of years now and it is still our favorite restaurant in the West Village. Every time we go we are warmly welcomed by the whole staff. Never have we had an issue with the staff. On Friday nights there is typically a wait which we don't mind since we know we are going to have a good meal. The hostess always asks if we would like anything while we wait and makes sure everyone waiting has what they need. We have our favorite dishes, mainly risotto, and we are always very happy with it and the way it tastes, never have we had a bad dinner here. The caesar salad is also one of our favorites. We come so often that the staff once asked us who was gluten free, neither of us are gluten free.

Had passed by over many years & always thought to stop in well tonight I did. I am a restaurant worker & am possibly more critical than most , with that I say I wish I would have continued to wonder about this place & not went in. Overall it's one of those places where the guest is an inconvenience, lot's going on but nothing focused on the guest. Over $30.00 for a bowl of risotto and a glass of wine bit much the Montepulciano was $14.00 and the waiter forgot to put my appetizer order in. The risotto itself was blah and the walnuts on top may have been a bit rancid. Oh well mark it off the restaurants to try list and put on the dont go back list.

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!
