The Brooklyn-based pizzeria has been referred to as ‘the best pizza in New York’…

If you love pizza (seriously, who doesn’t?) then get ready to welcome famous New York pizzeria, Motorino to Dubai for the first time. The licensed restaurant, which originated in Brooklyn, will open its doors on Wednesday October 23, in JA Ocean View hotel, JBR.

It’s a great new option for fans of American eatery Tribeca, which closed in the same hotel earlier this year. The space has been renovated with booth tables along the back wall, and sociable seating areas throughout.

What can you expect on the menu? Well, pizza, but not just any pizza. They’re made with fresh Italian ingredients, using a dough that has been through a traditional two day rising process to achieve that delicious bubbly yet crispy crust.

But that’s not all, you’ll also find pastas, salads and desserts all with an Italian-American flair. The ravioli stuffed with braised veal ossobuco, veal sugo, sage and parmigiano sounds particularly tempting, before finishing off with a classic tiramisu.

The much-loved outdoor terrace has been renovated too, offering a casual space for diners to watch the world go by during the winter months. The casual eatery will have staff in jeans and tshirts to make the guest feel at home right away and there’s a cosy atmosphere thanks to the cushy booths and natural foliage decoration.

Vice President of Food & Beverage, Rob Cunningham said: You can get pizza anywhere, but great pizza is another story. JA Resorts & Hotels has drafted in Mathieu Palombino of Motorino New York because this is personally the best pizza we’ve ever tasted globally, and we want to bring the best to Dubai. Don’t take my word for it though, try Motorino pizza for yourself and let your taste buds decide.”
