Pressured to hurry thru the meal to turnover the table....

Risotteria has changed a lot unfortunately......We all understand the need to turn over restaurant tables to make money but the extremely pushy (pushing for us to eat our meals and leave) experience we had at the limited space restaurant of the Risotteria was unlike anything we had ever experienced before. Having just come back from Afghanistan we were looking forward to a good meal and an hour of relaxation but instead we were literally having our forks taken out of our hands when we going to put them down and we're inundated with being pushed out of the facility at every stage of our meal (we all had expensive meals, a bottle of wine, and we good consumers but pushed out in spite of this!). This is not a proper sit down restaurant but instead a fast food service joint- so expect this feeling and to be pushed out if you choose to be seated there.
overpriced rude staff will not return

Went here for my girlfriends birthday bc she can't eat gluten waited almost 2 hours to be seated. food was over priced! To top it off after spending nearly $300 on food and wine our group was asked to leave after being there a little over an hour because they needed the table. We still had two half full bottles of wine. Staff was very rude I will not return!
A night to remember

Great for Gluten Free and Non-Gluten free diners!

I am on a Gluten Free diet & Risotteria is my go-to restaurant! At first, I had to beg my friends to go because they figured Gluten Free restaurants would be terrible...now they are asking me to go there! Since they have both Gluten Free & Non Gluten Free options, everyone is happy! The bread is addicting and the paninis and pizza are both delicious! The only downside is that the place is small so you may have to wait for a table. If you are there on a nice day, you can wait outside on the bench and people watch until your table is ready. The food is worth the wait!

The food here is great, also including the pizza and the long bread sticks they give out. Risotto runs from about $13 to $15 a pop, but is pretty economical because it is so heavy that you pretty much have left overs to take home as a meal itself. It is small, so be prepared for a 20 min wait for 2 at night.
One of a kind

I love this place. The rissottos in the menu are fantastic across the board. The pizzas are good as well, and very original. The space is tiny and very matter of fact. It is what it is. Gets crowded in the weekend but it's not hard to seat at the bar, if you are alone, or during weekdays on a table.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
