My wife and I dined here for our first wedding anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was first class. The waiters could not have done more to ensure that we had a great experience. I would thoroughly recommend eating here.

We were excited to try this restaurant as we love Kayne (same owners) but Moto is not in the same league. We came early as we were going to the Opry. We were the first ones there and were seated in the back rather than...More

I've been to Moto a number of times a day my last visit did not disappoint. They have free valet parking which is a must in the area. Our waiter was professional and informative. I love the black spaghetti, cacio de pepe, cheese board, brussels,...More

Went to Moto from a friends recommendation and absolutely loved it! The pizza was cooked perfectly and after just returning from Italy, I can say that it was better than we had on our trip! Salads and filet were perfectly paired with the Brussel sprouts...More

We ended with a $610 bill for 12 people which doesn't seem too far off, however, we all left hungry. The portions have definitely been reduced since our last visit. Too bad it's all about profit margin as opposed to happy customers who would come...More

Not that we saw, but it was a nice restaurant, so I'd dress accordingly.

I would call. We did not see any small children, but can't say whether or not it's kid friendly.

Moto features inspired rustic-modern Italian cuisine. The menu is a contemporary approach to authentic Italian cooking that utilizes product consciously sourced from local farms and artisans balanced by premium product imported from Italy. Moto's headliners are seasonal 'market' items and perfectly crafted house-made pasta dishes. There is also a comprehensive, steak and chop section borrowed from nationally recognized sister MStreet restaurant, Kayne Prime. Moto's vibe is chic, comfortable and sophisticated. Modern Italian sex appeal comes to life against rustic-industrial bones of the brick warehouse setting. The vibrant atmosphere evokes the warmth and soulfulness of the Italian experience. Interiors are richly appointed with nods to classic Italian design elements organized with fashionable furnishings and finishes.
