I'm a huge fan of thin crust NYC pizza and this is my favorite place I've been to. I say this with the caveat that I don't make it to Brooklyn often so I'm sure there's better out there, but this is pretty damn good and I always leave happy. Personal pies go for about $15 each and they have... More

No frills pizza place. The choices are good and the service is brisk. Also, they made the pizza to my specification. What's not to like?

This was our 4th trip to NYC and I can't tell begin to say how many pizza places we visited but I have to say this was the best of them all! We had a simple but delicious salad and 3 different pizzas. All wonderful including the veggie pizza with heirloom tomatoes. We will return for sure next trip.

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

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.
