Italian for “motion” and the commonly used term for motorcycle or scooter, the word moto has been selected as a moniker for this cultural icon of Italian life. Paying homage to our warehouse location’s former life as a mechanics’ shop on MStreet in the Gulch, Moto Cucina + Enoteca’s design reflects the free spirit and gritty glamour associated with the Italian moto motif.
Moto features inspired rustic-modern Italian cuisine. Moto's 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.
A large bar and lounge area welcomes guests into its ‘enoteca’ inspired environment where wine is king. Moto features over 30 ever-changing wines by the glass and 250 labels in total.

Moto Ratings and Reviews
My colleague and I were out-of-towner from Washington, DC, working at the convention center at Gaylord for a couple of days. Tired of food out there, we decided to come to this restaurant hoping we can eat better food. Well, the food was disapointing. Our salad was saggy and too salty. We both ordered Black Bucatini as we both missed that wonderful black ink pasta with seafood that we enjoyed in Florence, Italy. The result was dissapointing again,; pasta was overcocked and sauce, too salty.
Moto was outstanding. Ed was our server and he was excellent. We split the mussels appetizer. A salad, good loaf of bread to soak up the delicious sauce with the mussels would have made for a great meal all by itself!! We had Scallops and Salmon as a main course and a side of potatoes al forno. All perfectly cooked and so delicious. Can’t wait to go back again. Convenient complimentary parking available across the street. What a great smell. Thank you Moto. We will be back.
Great food and terrific service. We went before going to the theater and could not have been happier. We split a salad then my spouse had pasta and I had the Sausage and Honey pizza. We finished with dessert and coffee. The salads were large and the desserts small, but that's our usual preference. Highly recommended!
My girlfriend and I came for date night and we had an incredible evening! We came for an early dinner on a Sunday night and the restaurant was calm and quiet, which was really nice. All of the food was perfect, the cocktails were delicious, and the wine suggestions were spot on! Seth was our server and was one of the best servers we've ever had. He was friendly but also gave us our space, was very knowledgable about the menu, and made great suggestions as far as ordering and wine pairing. We loved everything and we'll certainly be back!
My friend and I were in town for a girl's weekend and this place came highly recommended by our Uber driver and we quickly learned why. Moto has a great atmosphere, delicious food and impeccable service! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a recommendation while in town!
The food was great; high quality ingredients, tasty, and just a touch different from the norm. The staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was both warm and modern. There were 4 in our party and everyone was more than satisfied; all in all this place made for a really great dinner.
Horrible, awful pizza. It is cooked until really crispy and the sauce/cheese combo is all watery on top. We literally couldn't believe how bad it was.
Our server, Zavier, was very, very slow, often nowhere to be seen. He was pleasant when we could find him.
