First time here and I'll plan to return. I had the Osso Bucco (tender & flavorful) and my friend enjoyed her shrimp and mussels risotto.

We both were envious watching 2 tables have the Table-Side Cacio é Pepe prepared. (You can get this with or without the poached egg.) It looked amazing (and so much fun), so I must return to try that!

Neighborhood find!

Great neighborhood find! Risotto is their thing, large selection of homemade pastas as well. We had the Seafood Risotto as well as the Cacio Pepe. Both were delicious! Just to note: Menu is limited in terms of non-carb items, 2 chicken dishes and maybe one fish.

They could not have been nicer or more accommodating. What a lovely restaurant! The food was outstanding- we had butternut squash soup, bruschetta, and calamari and shrimp to start. Then we ordered 2 risottos- the mushroom one and the one with vodka sauce. Both delicious! And we also had the “Cacio e Pepe” which was as delicious as we had read in the reviews. Watching it being made for us table side was a treat. My husband is a vegan and they were so kind and helpful. All 4 of us loved our dinners and we will definitely be back. Thank you for making our Saturday night special!

Yes to Risotto!! Small place but food, service great. Campagna Salad my favorite. Calarmari perfectly cooked. Three of us had Pasta made table side (Cacio e Pepe) and one Linguine white clam sauce. Check out website for live demo of the pasta.

There are no frills or attitude here. Just really delicious food. We came to try the Cacio y Pepe but will return to try so much more. Salmon was perfect, Caesar was a little heavy on the dressing. Owners and staff were very personable and welcoming. Will definitely return.

Great service and food all around. Staff was warm and had amazing attention to details in taking care of us. Restaurant environment (internally) needs a renovation. Pests (flies specifically) were flying into our food throughout the course of the evening. Being that it was my wife’s birthday, I tried to just ignore them, but was definitely irritated.

Service was excellent. Risotto was very good as a restaurant with that name should be. The special of the night was a Chilean Seabass with a unique twist of corn risotto. Also excellent.

What a treat! We came to celebrate a friend's birthday and it worked out perfectly. The outdoor area is intimate without feeling crowded, the music selection was perfect, the food was delicious and the service was flawless. The dessert tray (on a lazy susan) was the highlight-- take my word for it! All 8 people in my party loved the experience and can't wait to come back. Thanks to Kevin and his team for a celebration worthy of our fabulous birthday girl!

A great find ….
I have been wanting to go here for a while, seeing great IG posts snd write ups as well as the owner of Trotta’s (next door) always saying wonderful things.
When I arrived even though there were many tables available there was confusions and a lag in time to seat us. Once seated, wait for service was extremely long and not as attentive as it should be for the price tag (again it was fairly empty) BUT the food redeemed it. Everyone in my party was thrilled with their dishes from appetizer to entree there was not one complaint…. An unusual achievement.

I will say to sit inside even in the nice weather as the noise from trucks, trains and cars passing makes conversation difficult at times. However, we will definitely be back.

Stellar birthday dinner last night start to finish. Shared fried calamari and baked clams. Show stopper with "Fire" for table side cacio d pepe which was awesome. A large cheese wheel is heated up and cognac is poured in so there are flames from the wheel, then the pasta is added and tossed around. The plate is finished off with a poached egg and basil pesto oil. It was superb. A Pork shank over saffron pea risotto was out of this world, spaghetti & clams was full of fresh steamed clams. Tiramisu & cappuccino was terrific too.

What can I say except.... Perfection! I have been following Risotto on Instagram and fell in love with the Little Extras! The cheese wheel and smoky desserts! But would pictures translate to real life and it truly did and went beyond!
From the moment we arrived, we felt like family... I was welcomed by name and made to feel Special! Everything from having a risotto dish cut into portions in the kitchen and served to the cheese wheel pasta!
My hanger steak was outstanding!
Hubby had meatballs to go with his pasta!
For dessert , we had cannolis, sorbet and gelato!
We didn’t feel rushed and we left full and very very happy!
Risotto is our New Restaurant! We don’t go out a lot but will visit again and being others!!

Thank you for making my Birthday extra special! I’m still talking about it!

Kevin is a very talented chef. Our server was outstanding. The bouillabaisse was amazing, the risotto, and meatballs were as well. Top it all off with Aperol spritzers and the tartufo for dessert, and it’s a perfect meal.

We had a nice brunch for 4 people. We thought it was a prefix menu.
I saw menu on their website. Sounded good. Welll. the fine print on website was ... prefix was takeout only. The brunch menu was not the same or close to the prefix menu.
So $225 dollars brunch for 4 lovely people! It was good but not again.
