I am a huge pizza lover and this was really good. My gf had been wanting to come for years and we finally made it. The place is small and we got there on a Friday night around 6, but managed to come just in...More

We had the Sopressata Picante Pizza and added onions and mushrooms! It was delicious! We had it delivered to our hotel room near Central Park via the caviar delivery app! One of the best pizzas I have ever had! 😋

This is a small restaurant that doesn’t really catch your attention from the outside, but we were happily surprised with the napolitain style pizza, thin crust and not greasy at all. The Kale salad was excellent so were the roasted peppers...

Shaved Fennel Salad had beautifully shaved fennel, but it was swimming in dressing and was soggy, not crisp and vibrant as it should be (and that is easy to get right). Then they forgot the red onion and chili flakes. Octopus salad, probably the best...More

We loved the wood oven pizzas at Motorino on the Upper West side. Great flavour and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Simple small pizza place with fantastic white pizza. The dough is soft and chewy. The clam pizza with a little squeeze or fresh lemon was so satisfying. Creamy, savory, zesty, and flavorful. I found it very interesting how this little humble venue's tables are all...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
