A unique gluten free experience, 100% made in Italy.
The first Risotteria Melotti was opened in Isola della Scala, in the region of VERONA, in 2002. The idea of opening a Risotteria in New York came in order to make this typical and traditional italian dish known and cooked by us, with the rice we produce and with the typical old style techniques used in Isola della Scala.
Tiramisu' Made with Rice Sponge Cake
Romaine Lettuce, Gluten-Free Croutons and Caesar Dressing
Cacio e Pepe
Risotto with Cacio Cheese, Fresh Pepper and Parmigiano Cheese
Delicious dinner. But very loud so was hard to hear conversation at the table. But overall a fantastic experience
One of the best hidden gems in the entire city. Everything on their menu is sure to delight, but the inclusion of duck and wild boar ragu bring wonderful traditional options to the table. Their fare is an example of quintessential Italian comfort food. Highly recommended!
This is the best Italian meal since my Momma made it. 100% gluten free and delicious.
Food was disappointing. Waiter was rather abrupt.
Amazing food, service and good prices. I felt a bit rushed with the checked but an overall great experience.
Fantastic staff and incredible risotto (obviously). The duck breast ragout risotto was to die for. Highly recommend!
We had an absolutely lovely time. Felt like a meal in Italy
Wonderful atmosphere, food is incredible, service was so inviting! Thank you so much- I will definitely be back!
Arugula and caesar salads were fresh and tasty. Fried rice polenta with wild mushrooms and Monte Veronese cheese - polenta was dry, perhaps overcooked, mushrooms were delicious. Risottos (1 with scallops and basil and 1 with radicchio and gorgonzola) were good. The restaurant is small and it was fully booked (we had reservations). There was very little space in between tables on each side and even less so between the back and middle rows of tables/chairs - it was very tight and unpleasant with our chairs being knocked by servers and patrons throughout dinner. Will return but only on slower nights to avoid dining amongst the crowd in the tight quarters.
Absolutely a gem. Family run and family grown rice from Italy. We shared a salad and pumpkin risotto and both were delicious. Although we are not gluten free dinners, this is an amazing find for people who are, as several other diners were. We will certainly return.
Risotteria Melotti was fabulous on Saturday night! We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was outstanding and the service was terrific! The risotto dishes were very good but not as creative as the dessert dishes. The wine selections were average but not bad.
The best risotto in NYC. Great place, food is delicious, the place is very welcoming, and the service is great. Not only you can eat the best risotto, but also to learn from them. From appetizers to deserts and coffee, everything is great Plus, the place is very consistent, I have been going there for several years, always a great experience. And prices are very reasonable.
The food was amazing, service was wonderful, atmosphere was so relaxing. The owner and staff is so friendly and welcoming. We will certainly be returning and hopefully become regulars.
The food, service, and ambience were all amazing. I didn't know that Risottoria's were a thing but they may be my new favorite thing. A restaurant with all kinds of Risotto!
We love this place. Staff are courteous, friendly and on top of everything. Food delicious. High quality ingredients. AND 100% gluten free—including bread and dessert. My celiac daughter’s favorite NYC restaurant.
Can we give a 10/5?!? Best meal and service we have ever had. The truffle risotto may have changed my palate for the better forever. Pear and avocado salad was delightful. For 2 gluten free diners, this was heaven. The manager is an absolute professional and so kind. The pumpkin mousse and dessert wine capped off an amazing meal.
Great service and food as always! Will definitely be back! A+
We love Risotteria Meloti. We have a wonderful dining experience there every time we visit. Thank you!
Went for a birthday. The food is aammmmazing!!! Everyone needs to go.
Excellent calamari and risottos. Staff is friendly and helpful. Second time at this restaurant - I love it, and now my friends do, too. (Everything they offer is gluten-free, and my gluten-eating friends go there because it is so good.)
Delicious! As an Italian celiac and strict gluten free diner, this restaurant was a dream come true. Authentic Italian flavors, lovely ambiance, and overall sublime dinner.
The place is so nice and the food was soo good.
The food was terrible. The bread was stale and part of our meal was burnt.
Our server was wonderful and friendly, even though she was clearly slammed with customers. The food was spectacular and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I have Celiac disease, so the fact that it was a dedicated gluten free restaurant was important to me. Delicious, even for my gluten-eating husband and daughter! Will definitely come back when we return to NYC one day.
Excellent food and service - a unique concept that’s not just a safe place for Celiacs. You could take your non gluten free friends here and they might not even take notice to the missing gluten unless they’re big craft beer fans (not a big beer selection - and all GF). The wine list, including by the glass, is respectable.
A unique restaurant in the giant NYC hospitality world, Menotti serves the very best risotto. Huge selection of interesting preparations, all served from scratch. Ate there Sunday night and sad to say we were the only ones in the restaurant. Nonetheless the service was gracious. Love this place.
This place is outstanding, best risotto in NYC. From the warm welcome by the staff, the freshness and quality of the ingredients, and of course, the meal, it is a full celebration. We had arancini and burrata as t appetizers, then risottos, and we were lucky they had the peach cobbler as dessert, as well as the tiramisu. Have no doubts, you will enjoy the visit
Food was excellent, great service and quiet place to have a nice dinner. Highly recommended - we will come back!
Fantastic as always.
Incredible Risotto and all options gluten free! Even the dessert which was divine - will return again!!
Incredible service! And delicious food. The waiter brought us out free dessert wine that was delightful.
Amazing food! 100% gluten free. Even brought gf bread and they had half a dozen desserts to choose from.
Wow. Amazing. Risotto has been apart of my family for generations from our Italian heritage. This was the most authentic preparation of risotto I’ve had in the US period. In addition to that, the gluten free desserts were phenomenal. I cannot wait to come back.
Amazing service and excellent food. Highly recommended.
Phenomenal risotto! Nice casual Italian ambiance. Great hidden spot that makes you feel like you're in Italy! Try the bacon chicken asparagus with some truffles for my favorite dish!
We felt like we were in Italy. The food was exquisite and the ambience beautiful!
Amazing! Everything at this restaurant in delicious - their traditional Risotto and the tiramisu are a must try.
Service was exceptional and the food was superbb
The Cacio e Pepe risotto was delicious. Definitely won’t be the last time I visit.
Delectable gf food, delightful service. Can't wait to go back!
