Reviews for Motorino


Motorino's Napolitan pies are undeniably delicious -- savory, crusty, thin -- with an entire pie easily devourable by a hungry beast of an average person. But my favorite is the egg and pancetta brunch pie -- if I owned a wood oven, I'd probably make one of these every Saturday.


Widely regarded as the best of that large body of ultra-artisanal pizzerias dedicated to the Napoletana style of small, wood-fired pies, Motorino is great (if you like that style.)

best. – Delicious. I can always rely on motorino for my pizza fix.

A serious oven cooking seriously tasty Neapolitan pies. – When Anthony Mangieri decided to shutter his wildly popular East Village spot Una Pizza Napoletana, Mathieu Palombino saw an opportunity. The main reason? That would be the restaurant’s ready-to-go Acunto, an exorbitantly expensive wood-burning oven handmade in Naples that churns out delightfully airy Neapolitan pies ranging from classics like the margherita to varieties topped with spicy soppressata, smoked pancetta and other gourmet ingredients. The narrow space, much like the original Brooklyn restaurant, has a playful cafe vibe with a green-and-white striped paint job, marble-topped tables and a large, breezy window facing out onto East 12th Street.
