Rice is already gluten-free, but you’ll know Risotteria Melotti is made specifically for gluten-free eaters when you see the rest of the menu. In addition to an extensive selection of risottos, the 100% GF offerings include antipasti like crispy calamari fried in rice flour and bruschetta on rice bread, as well as rice-based desserts like tiramisu made with rice sponge cake. The best risottos are the most robust. We especially love the one topped with tender pork loin, fresh pancetta, and plenty of grana panado. You’ll eat everything in a kitschy space that looks like a rustic Italian villa gone awry, with a ladder, a wooden crate, and antique lighting hanging from the ceiling. They even have a sink that looks like an old water well.
