The award-winning Motorino Pizzeria Neapolitan is expanding to the Hamptons with a new custom-built wood-fired pizza trailer available for on-demand pizza parties. Motorino was founded in 2008 by Chef Mathieu Palombino and has since expanded to 15 locations around the world in New York City, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Dubai and Kuala Lumpur. Motorino Mobile offers a full onsite pizza station, complete with refrigeration, tent and lights. Pizza favorites are served with special additions highlighting local fare and bounty from the East End. It’s as close as you’ll get to having a pizzeria in your backyard and is perfect if you’re hosting an intimate gathering at your home, an outdoor wedding at a local vineyard or an end of summer party at your place of business.

“I’m excited to bring Motorino pizza to the East End this summer. This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen on Earth, and there’s no better place for a party…with pizza!.” –Mathieu Palombino

A native of Belgium, Palombino spent much of his teenage years apprenticing in restaurant kitchens, learning the craft from seasoned professionals before working in several fine dining restaurants. In 2000, Palombino moved to New York to further his classical French training while working under renowned chefs such as David Bouley and chef Laurent Tourondel. When the time came for Mathieu to open a restaurant of his own, he focused on the simple, wholesome, unpretentious food that he had been drawn to for years: pizza. In the fall of 2008, he realized the goal of opening Motorino Pizza in Brooklyn and a year later, he opened his first location in the East Village.  Since its launch Motorino has received several awards and accolades including features in The Bib Gourmand Michelin Guide, awarded “Best Pizzeria in the New York” by The New York Times, “Best Artisan Pie” by Time Out New York and “Best New Pizza Joint in the City” by New York Magazine.
