Motorino Pizza on Graham

dhs | Oct 28, 2008 11:11 AM

Went to Motorino for a pie this afternoon. This is a new wood burning oven place on Graham a couple of blocks south of Metropolitan. Ordered 2 magherrita with water buffalo mozzarella. The sauce was nice with good tomatoes and the cheese excellent.. All the ingredients were top notch but the crust left me wanting. Very chewy without as much airiness on the inside or crust on the outside as I would like and not very much flavor. I think they both needed to cook a little longer and that might have been part of the issue (the owner was cooking fwiw). Since the place is only open a couple of weeks I think it is worth trying again. If you are always looking to have new and better pizza, it is worth trying for sure.

I feel it is on the expensive side. $14 each for the pies I ordered which was 12" maybe 13" round.

Looks like Slice is reporting it as excellent. So as with all things pizza, opinions vary. Here is a link for those who are interested.
