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

Guess we are just not trendy enough eaters. Limited selections and black pasta with mushroom blueberry sauce was disappointing as was the presentation. Not very appetizing. Spaghetti with meatballs, the marinara sauce was ordinary and way too much sauce. Grilled romaine salad was okay as...More

Had the sampler platter with prosciutto, cheese, etc - delicious! Then shared wonderful brussel sprouts side, the scallops and fabulous lemon dessert. The amaretto sour was the best ever! Highly recommend Moto! Very good wait staff.

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.
