How important is the arborio rice? I assume this is what makes it creamy?

Beautiful job msmofet!

You need an appropriate short grain rice to make risotto. Short grain rices give off starch while cooking. The starch combines with the liquid to make the creamy sauce you see. Carnaroli rice is another option to arborio.
