Motorino Pizza @ RW Genting

Outside the 1920s New York styled restaurant, there is always a group of audience peering through the glass window, looking hypnotized by the acrobats of the pizza maker. The brick oven holding wood-fueled flames and fed with handmade pizza never fails to garner attention. One of Genting's most lavish investments, Motorino, ensures that their dedication to pizza is like no other. Although in an American setting, the restaurant commits to serving authentic Italian Neopolitan pizzas.
Pizza time!

Other than the superstar pizzas, there are a selection of antipasti (appetizer) to choose from. In true Italian fashion, antipasti is not about quelling hunger pangs before the main event. Italians know that antipasti set the tone for a meal.
