We recently had a family dinner at Motorino and it was delicious. It was late on a Thursday night and it was packed. I can see why. We ordered two salads and two pizzas and everything was great. The mixed green salads had a wonderful mixture of greens and herbs. Olive oil and balsamic vinegar was served on the side.... More

We went here on recommendation from the UK Sunday Times travel magazine. It’s a very small restaurant but we managed to get a table for two on Sunday lunch time. It does pizza, which is not a surprise but they are truly amazing … and very large. My partner had Brussels sprout pizza… yes, that sounds unusual and was, but... More

We came here for lunch one weekday we had off. We really loved the food but we though that the prices were a little to steep forus. There are a lot of pizza places like this around tha tI think are just as good if not better, like Thin Crust places like Gruppo and Posto. The pizza did come out... More

The pizza absolutely lived up to the hype. Mouth watering good. I will say however for the price of the wine it was a very small pour. The atmosphere was alright. But this is definitely not a place you go to for the atmosphere anyhow. You must check this place out if you're a pizza lover!

Great Pizza-excellent value. Very accommodating staff-we had a large party and they were able to fairly quickly able to handle our party. Pizza is really good-one of the best paces in NYC for pizza.

I loved this restaurant. The ambient light coupled with the wood fire oven makes for a very cosy and intimate dining experience. Please order the meat balls and the Brussel Sprouts and Pancetta pizza! It is to die for. I know it doesn't sound good but don't knock it till you have tried it!

After reading many of the good reviews we decided to get a take out pizza. We chose the Cremini Mushroom, which cost $18.50 When the box arrived we were a bit shocked at the tiny size of it but thought that it will surely taste great. Unfortunately it didn't. 4 slices ( I thought pizzas meant to be huge in... More

If you are looking for something casual and different... this is the place to go. The Pizza are very good and can be customized if you ask! Servive is very fast even if the place is packed all the time! The decor is original! Give a try and you will be surprised !
