Is it all hype? Some say this expensive New York pizza joint has the best pies in the city, while others feel it's overpriced and overcooked.

The pizza is almost as good as it is at the Manhattan branch of Motorino, and while the leopard-spotted cornicione (the edge) might be slightly less puffy, it's still excellent.

Perhaps the pizzas haven't quite made the level of 'NYC's best pizza' yet, but it's still a great spot for a small gathering with its unpretentious and lively atmosphere.

Both pizzas had a dough that is more like a naan, with a soft, chewy crust, rather than the thin pizza crust we were expecting, and were noticeably bitter from the charred bottoms.

We walked out stuffed, satisfied and charmed by the staff and surroundings. Clear the top of the podium; Motorino's here to stay.

Unlike a lot of Soho restaurants, service at Motorino was surprisingly good - in fact a little too good at times, with waitresses ready to take our plates before we had even finished each course.

All in all, a disappointing meal, and very little reason for me to give it a third try.

This is a hip, fresh little shop that whips up quality food with a good dose of creativity, while still staying very down to earth.

The pizza arrived smelling quite smoky from the oven. The bottom was a little too white under-baked for me, yet the cornicone crust was burnt in taste profile.

Overall, their were a few hits (meatballs & proscuitto pizza) but also a ton of misses.

The eggplant, yellow zucchini and green zucchini offered light and attractive flavours. The pizza dough was quite fluffy, and had a nice, lightly charred taste.

An ideal spot for a bite with friends or to take away if you are craving comfort food at home.
