Technically, Pizza Moto is in Red Hook, but it’s only about fifty feet from the border of Carroll Gardens - so if you’re if you’re in either neighborhood, and you’re looking for pizza, this is a place you should know about. The pizza here is Neapolitan-style, service is casual, and on any given night it’ll be filled with couples, small groups, and parents who are too tired to cook for their kids. The space isn’t very big, however, so make a reservation if you want a guaranteed seat.
