Motorino

Go back

Using fresh and beautiful ingredients, Motorino offers an approachable menu of flavourful antipasti, inventive pizzas and satisfying desserts. Arguably known as Hong Kong’s best pizza, Motorino has fast gained a loyal following for its authenticity and casual but efficient service. Motorino’s skilled pizzaiolos create fresh Neapolitan pizzas with premium Italian ingredients, including prosciutto sourced from Parma, San Marzano tomatoes and Caputo flour from Naples.  All pies are baked in a custom-made Stefano Ferrara oven and cooked at an extremely high heat for less than ninety seconds, resulting in a malleable pizza that is soft on the inside, and slightly charred on the outside. Traditional favorites, including the much loved margherita and marinara, sit alongside more contemporary options, while a selection of fresh antipasti dishes make perfect starters or sides. The two centrally located restaurants, Motorino Soho and Motorino Wan Chai, offer lunch and dinner, as well as delivery.
