We were there to get together before a funeral and it was a perfect quiet spot to talk (although we may have been loud lol!) We were catching up and the food made it great, especially the seafood risotto. Then you brought out a surprise dessert and it was both pleasing aesthetically and gastronomically! It will be a fave restaurant when I visit NY.

This was my husband's and I first visit to Risotto under this present owner. Of course, for the last forty years we have been to the various restaurants that have occupied this location. This is the only one that has the potential to be a five star venue. As an appetizer we ordered the chef's signature dish: a pasta in a cognac, cream sauce that is prepared table side.It was truly outstanding!!!! Will definitely make this a staple on future visits. One of our entrees was the hanger steak served with a gorgonzola risotto. It was served on a beautiful, oval platter and the steak was cooked to perfection. The risotto ( another signature gift) was a disappointment. It was truly bland.....lacked both cheese and salt and did not have the creamy consistency that is characteristic of risotto. However, next time I will try a different flavor of risotto......perhaps one with mushrooms might be more to my liking. On a positive note, the two waitresses were both very pleasant and professional. This is a restaurant that pays attention to detail.....even the evoo served with bread was ofexceptional quality. Which is probably why we were surprised by the
Less than ordinary wine list. It wasn't just that it was small (That's understandable when you have limited storage) but it was not well thought out by someone that knows wine. We're ardent wine drinkers so We're used to paying top dollar for good wine. However, one of your selections (a med. Prices wine at about $45) you are charging $160. This is a wine that another restaurant in the area is selling for under $100. Would gladly pay you $160 for a fine wine but your list didn't have any. Rework that list.....add some special wines weekly and 5 stars will be in your future.

The food is very good and I would recommend the restaurant. It was only my second time to this restaurant, as it is not near my home, but both times the food has really been good so it is worth a detour. The staff is friendly and attentive. As with all really good food the cost is slightly more than a less exceptional restaurant, but I think the quality of the food justified the cost.

The entire staff was very pleasant and helpful. Room felt quite crowded--tables fairly close together and it was a bit noisy until some guests started to leave.

Food was fine, though honestly not raveworthy---Risotto had a lot of flavor, with a nice taste of garlic and cheese. Other options were fine. They serve desserts with a pot of dry ice, so it comes out with an exciting smoky presentation. We were watching many diners get the tartufo and were excited for our turn, but when we ordered, they were out of it :( -- Disappointing, though that happens occasionally.

Will try again another day, to see if we find other food choices more to our liking.

Great Risotto and neighborhood gem. First time there, the mussels were excellent, fresh, well seasoned,
The veal and the shrimp francesse were both excellently prepared. The risotto prepared at the table was a fun thing to see... small store front type restaurant... but the noise level was exceptionally good, esp. on a Sat. night! Will go back... should have had the tartuffo for dessert!!

I have been trying to get here for months! and it ws sooo well worth the wait! There were 4 in our party, so I REALLY wanted to try their version of the Caico Pepe table side. It did NOT disappoint! its was delicious! and perfect amount of this rich pasta being slit into four for an app! I had the grilled salmon w roasted potatoes and grilled veggies that was wonderful! My husband the cavatelli was delicious but a little mushy to my husbands liking. (but thats his preference). two our our diner companions at the Special lamb Rigatoni Bolanase that was delicious and the other the lamb shank that she ate very morsel! We shared a wonderful bottle red wine, and unfortunately were tooo full for dessert! but we WILL be back for another wonderful meal, as there are MANY items I would like to try on this delicious menu! Cant wait! oh, and our wait staff could not have been ore gracious or attentive! It was a wonderful evening all around!

We enjoyed the food. The two men who provided service were great. It was special to have the cacio and pepe prepared at the table and have the dry ice fountain with dessert. Great food - as well as fun - who would complain about that. We brought a couple from Newport. RI and they loved it all.

We've been to this restaurant at least five times in the past 5 months. In total, at least 15 different people have tried it with my wife and I. EVERYONE rates it 5 STARS, "The BEST IN Westchester!". We love this restaurant so much, there have been times when we returned the very next night! We can't wait to try more menu items. The following are ALL OUTSTANDING:
o We shared the "Table-Side Cacio Pepe" with Fettuccini (instead of Risotto) as an appetizer - Outstanding!
o Special Salad of the Night - Fresh Figs with a Balsamic Glaze and Goat Cheese over Romaine Lettuce - Outstanding!
o Soup of the Day - Broccoli Rabe with White Beans and Sausage - Outstanding!
o Pork Osso Bucco - Outstanding!
o Cioppino (mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari, potato, fennel, stewed tomato, seafood brodo served with grilled ciabatta bread) - Outstanding
o Chicken Marsala - Outstanding
o Chicken over Spinach Fettuccini - Outstanding
o Pollo Quattro Formaggio with polenta - Outstanding
o Tartuffo - Outstanding
o Tiramisu - Outstanding

Be sure to save room for dessert. When you order, ask that they serve it on a Lazy Susan for an extra special surprise!

Besides the food, the owners Kevin & Jocelyn and the wait & bus staff are all wonderful, friendly, and attentive. Please, "Tell It Only to your BEST Friends & Family" so we can still get a reservation. This place is Westchester's Best Kept Secret!
