Giuseppe Melotti Family, farmers for generation, has specialized in the farming of the finest Italian rices such as VIALONE NANO VERONESE Rice and CARNAROLI Rice, and they has been producing the finest qualities of italian rice since 1986.
The Melotti Farm is located in Isola della Scala a special region in the south of Verona in Northern Italy. This is a well-known area for the rice growing, thanks to its spring water and organic soils.
Giuseppe Melotti and his wife Rosetta, together with their sons Luca, Gianmaria and Francesca directly follow the cultivation, the processing and the sail of their rice. The distribution channels range from high class restaurants, specialized delicatessen and gourmet shops.
In 2002 the first Risotteria Melotti was opened in Isola della Scala, thanks to the culinary experience of “Mamma Rosetta”. The idea of opening a Risotteria Melotti in New York came to make this typical and traditionally italian dish known and cooked by us, with the rice we produce.
Since 2013 the New York restaurant Risotteria Melotti NYC is fulfilling the Melotti Family dream. It has been located in the very trendy East Village in the city of Manhattan.
Our restaurants offer a wide range of rice-based specialities and a selection of Risotto from Verona and Veneto Region.
Melotti Farm can count on its part a direct point of sale dedicated to rices and rice-based specialties. In addition to this it can also be proud of an educational area called “A trip around the rice”, meant to convey and spread the knowledge of the territory and the cultivation of italian rice, which is appreciated all over the world.
