Distinguished vibe, food and service. Enjoyed salad and even clams in addition to the main event with many options that we did not try. Good wine selection and reasonably priced. Great service too, all while packed as it should be always.

Came by twice in two days because I was craving their clam pizza after the first visit. So the clam pizzas are amazing, but their margarita is fantastic too. The second time, discovered their lunch special is much better value than ordering a single pizza....More

How on earth can you charge 21 dollars for a Margherita? I am italian and I know how much pizza costs to make. I also know that outside Italy pizza can be very "posh" but this is robbing people. Never again

Don't expect a fine dining experience when you come here. The place is quaint and small. The Pizza is excellent (my favorite is the very spicy sopressata!) - but you should also try the starters which come in very generous portions. I had a marvelous...More

This place? So good. Small place, great staff. Had the Octopus salad which was amazing. A load of octopus, onions, capers, and olive oil. Large and satisfying. Then they had an artichoke special. My wife commented that it was the best artichoke dish she's had...More

Pizza 🍕 was very good. The store was small and cramped. The service was passable. It is worth a try to judge for yourself.

Went to Motorino close to midnight and what a find! The pizza were so delicious and friendly vibe. Even though there were only two tables of customers, we still have to wait for quite a bit given there were many take away orders!

Excellent service. The place is very small, but we went around 2pm on a Saturday and had no problem getting a table for four. Our group split the Soppresatta pizza and the Prosciutto pizza and they were both pretty amazing, though the prosciutto was my...More

We live in the neighborhood, and were excited to try something new for a quick meal on a weeknight. After ordering, we sat and sat. We had to ask for our beer a 2nd time. 15 minutes later, we got a very overdressed Kale Ceasar...More

Fantastic pizza is not easy to find on the UWS of Manhattan so Motorino is a welcome addition. What is especially great is that they have real appetizers and vegetables as well as a quality winelist, aspects that are impossible to find even at the...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
