Gluten free friends, thanks for hanging in there with me the last few weeks. I know I’ve done a lot of posts on my trip to New York, but there were so many delicious options that I wanted to be sure and share as much as possible with you! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my reviews and seeing some gluten free options that most of us can only dream of – like gluten free breadsticks and chocolate chip cupcakes!
In case you missed any of my posts, here’s a recap:

I just learned that I’ll be returning to New York in December for a few days so I plan to add to this list. I hope this helps any of you that might be planning a trip to the big city. There are some fabulous gluten free options and there is no reason for you to be anxious about your trip. I’d say my top three favorite restaurants were Risotteria, Nizza, and Lili’s 57. If you visit any of these places, I’d love to hear your opinions. Or, if you have any suggestions for my readers or for my upcoming trip, please feel free to comment below.
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.
Different gluten free mixes are sold at the counter
Without a doubt, I will never return to New York without stopping at Risotteria!
