4. Motorino Pizzeria

Stepped into Motorino Pizzeria and you’ll be transported to Italy. The pizzeria, from New York City, is famed for its authentic Neapolitan taste. You can expect classic New York-style wood-fired pizzas by incorporating bold Italian flavours. But, do know that a Neopolitan pizza is not meant to be thin and crispy nor it should be loaded with toppings. The diameter of a typical Neopolitan pizza is 12 inches and the portion size is just nice for a person. In other words, it’s not meant to be shared. If there are two of you, it’s a good idea to order two pizzas so as not to leave hungry. We’d recommend the classics such as the Margherita and Marinara if it’s your first time. Don’t skip the meatballs while you’re here! Address: Level 4, Highline Roof Top Market, SkyAvenueOpening hours: 12pm - 1am (Sunday - Thursday), 12pm - 2am (Friday - Saturday)
