Must try: Brussel Sprouts Pizza


Motorino serves some of the best Neapolitan pies in the city.

 Housed in a small, casual storefront in the East Village, this gourmet pizzeria churns out authentic Naples style pizzas with a current bent.

 Whatever kind of pie you choose – you will have the same experience at first bite. The formula used at Motorino is simple. Great dough and ingredients are used with minimal toppings and fired in a state of the art oven which helps create slices which have the perfect crunch and yet are moist and airy.

Do try the Brussel Sprouts and Smoked Pancetta Pie if you can. It is my favorite!

 The pizzas at Motorino range from $15-$20 and it can get really crowded at peak times.
