  • Excellent food and dcor
  • Soft rice with mushroom...forget it's name but tastes perfect!
  • Delicious food and a great wine list. Risotto dishes are large and can be comfortably split between two people (though you'll want it all to yourself).
  • Get the melon and shrimp risotto. Seriously. Stop reading this and order it already.
  • The atmosphere is perfect. The staff is very kind and checks on you just enough. The food is absolutely like the risotto in Verona!
  • Amazing risotto, get the mushrooms with truffle!
  • Great new addition to the neighborhood! Everything we've tried has been delicious. And it's BYOB for now and there's a wine shop across the street.
  • BYOB! Very cute place, liquor store across the street. The duck risotto is amazing, as is the scallop! Definitely recommend! Price friendly.
  • The story of thus place is beautiful and the food is excellent. They don't have a liquor license yet so bring your own wine!
  • We tried the scallop & sun dried tomato risotto and the pork loin risotto. Both good. I would have enjoyed the scallops more if they were pan seared. The gluten free nutella crepes were delicious.
  • Lemon shrimp risotto
  • We love this place, so cozy and comfy!! The attendance is excellent. Try their Risotto Funghi, is fantastic.
  • Everything is amazing
  • Ooey, gooey risotto is naturally gluten-free, so you can take your gluten-lovin friends here and we can bet they won't evennotice its absence.
  • Amorone e monte veronese and capesante for our main dishes and tiramisu to top it off
  • Most authentic Italian in the East Village. Spectacular service, great specials, and every single risotto is delicious. Try the calamari!
  • Great spot for some quality Italian. The duck risotto is great and try the mushroom appetizer.
  • The duck breast risotto was excellent!
  • The best risotto - super authentic and delicious
  • Everything is delicious! Warning, you will want to order everything
