Today marks the last review from my New York trip and probably my favorite stop – Risotteria. Not only is Risotteria located in my favorite New York neighborhood (the West Village), but the gluten free options are numerous!
I knew the restaurant was a winner when I sat down and they immediately brought out gluten free breadsticks. What a treat! I hadn’t enjoyed breadsticks in years and these were just the right amount of crunchy.
The menu is almost exclusively gluten free so you can’t go wrong. I was going to go with the risotto, and then I remembered my gluten free friend Steph’s review raving about the prosciutto & mozzarella pizza. I couldn’t resist and ordered that. Needless to say, it lives up the hype!
As you can see from the photo, they are very generous with the prosciutto and the crust was perfect – thin and crunchy.
The restaurant is extremely small and you are practically sitting on top of your neighbors. Ordinarily this would bother me, but I enjoyed talking to all the other gluten free folks around me.
Without a doubt, I will never return to New York without stopping at Risotteria!
