Risotteria

I recently reviewed my "New York" tab and was surprised to see that I hadn't written about Risotteria yet.  Risotteria was one of the first restaurants I went to with an extensive gluten free menu.  My fond memories of Risotteria were also jogged by a picture my friend Clara sent me recently.  She's accompanied me on many trips to Risotteria over the years.




Risotteria is a tiny restaurant in New York's West Village which serves gluten free risotto, pizza, paninis, and salads.  They also have awesome gluten free black & white cookies, whoopie pies, and other assorted desserts and serve Redbridge gluten free beer.  I love that the breadsticks are gluten free and delicious -- these are some of the best breadsticks I've ever had, gluten free or not.


My favorite option on the menu: the paninis.  You Celiacs reading this know how difficult it is to find a great gluten free sandwich.  If you check out Risotteria, you will not be disappointed with the thick, flavorful bread used for the paninis.  I like the mozzarella, tomato & pesto.

Risotteria's gluten free options are awesome for Celiacs -- it's definitely a great place to check out next time you're in New York City!  Do you love it or do you love it?

I love it! My sister took me once and it was the first time I ever had a panini. It was heaven.
