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.

Everyone ordered risotto and it was good, but we should have ordered side dishes, vegetables or salad to go with the main dish. It's alot of the same thing, so even if you order an appetizer, it's finished before the entree, so there's not any variety. I suggest ordering a salad or side to eat along with the risotto.

100% gluten free! Go there even if you don’t have a gluten allergy. This place has been a favorite of mine for years and they import their families rice from Italy. Just fantastic

Came here for an early dinner with my husband and sister in law on a Tuesday evening. I had made a reservation, so we were seated right away and were able to order a glass of wine quickly. Service earlier in the evening was impecable, but as the evening wore on and the restaurant got busy, things definitely fell through the cracks. We were hoping for dessert, but waited so long to have our dinner plates cleared that we were just ready to go.

Pricing was reasonable for the east village and we’ll definitely go back, but if you’re there during prime dinner hours, be prepared to either signal for service or wait a while.

Ambiente luminoso e la giusta musica Italiana di sottofondo che fa da contorno ad un cibo spettacolare ad a un servizio impeccabile. Ottimi anche i vini.
Consigliatissima a chi vuole un angolo d'Italia a New York.

Food is wonderful and delicious! I love that it is all gluten free. Only thing that was difficult is that all the two-seaters have odd chair options and very very tight quarters. The seats by the window are actually not even chairs, just the window ledge. It was a bit uncomfortable (but I could mostly forget since the food was so amazing). very nice servers as well

Food was fantastic. Waiters were perceptive and very welcoming. The only downside was the kitchen is in the dinning area and the ac was barely working

While it was wonderful to have a restaurant where the entire menu is gluten-free, the dishes just weren't all that tasty to warrant the price. I ordered the carbonara with tagliatelle and I think the carbonara sauce was poured in while the pasta was too hot, so that the eggs ended up being a bit "scrambled' instead of being a glossy sauce.

The authentic Italian food tasted excellent. The carpaccio di salmone was fresh and the all'isolana in "pentolino" was savory and very filling.

The best risotto and polenta I've ever had! This has been my 3rd visit here, and I try to come here any time I'm in NYC - it's just that good! Consistently good food, and good service makes Melotti one of my favorites in the city.

AWESOME Gluten free options-- It was a little redundant having only risotto on the entire menu, but the food was excellent and I would definitely go back.

Best during the day less noisy and the service is better. , Everything is gluten free if that’s a concern. Good basic risotto, a break which reminds you of Italy. Nice experience. Lovely desserts.

The restaurant is very cozy and comfortable. The ambiance was affected by the fact it was noisy. That could have been as a result of two larger groups celebrating.would not hesitate in recommending this resto

Great little place truly devoted to the art of risotto.
In town for business and stopped in for Porri e Speck. Was absolutely delightful. They have definitely brought over some culinary knowledge from Verona, Italy.
