I've always enjoyed Miceli's for its history, good food and ambiance. I hate to say this but the old wait staff needs to go. They clearly get overwhelmed when it gets busy and the night I went was not busy at all. Two of the items I ordered were not delivered (capresse salad and soft drink) when our dinner arrived so I asked to have them taken off my bill, which he did. But his lack of attention cost Miceli's $15 so I would imagine this happens more often when you're busy. Food was so-so this time.

This is a gem that is walking distance to the Dolby Theater. The food was great especially the New England Clam Chowder. The portions were large enough to share. Plus entertainment was fun to add to the evening.

I have been to Miceli's many times, but this past Saturday I had the pleasure of taking my dear friend and her daughter there, they were both celebrating their birthdays. My friend's daughter turned 16 and she is a huge music lover, so I thought she'd enjoy the piano and singing wait staff - she did! We all had a blast and they're hoping to go back soon. I know I will be! Thanks again, Miceli's, for outstanding food, outstanding service, and for a great time!

A few steps from crazy Hollywood Blvd. an oasis of calm and good food! "Thin crust" pizza needed a thinner crust, but was good. Eggplant parmesan was excellent, and the service was, too. Great place for family, and nice for couples, as well. We will be back.

Terrible female manager. Rude to all the staff. No one sang whilst we were there. Food was average. Definitely won't be back.

Having lived in Los Angeles for decades now, I am used to restaurants coming and leaving each time making a big splash on arrival and then simply dying and sulking away. Miceli's has been around since the late 40s and is still going strong. With a strong, appetizing menu and a staff that is knowledgeable, fun and attentive, this is my go-to Italian destination when I need a quick fix or have guests from out of town that want a taste of old Hollywood - but without the stiffness of a table cloth and cloth napkin affair. From the pizzas to the pastas and the salads in between, Miceli's is always ready with a smile to welcome you and take that hunger away but will not rob you blind or leave an after taste which you'll regret in the morning. Thank you for making my most recent visit a pleasurable one. My guests from France brought their 3 teen age children and everyone was happy!

Soda was flat. And the waitress just kept offering different brands instead of changing out the soda in the machine. I went through three different sodas and all were flat. So i ate dinner with no drink.

Very cluttered with bottles hanging from ceiling and knick knacks on walls. The food is good but the setting not.

In November 2015 was our fifth anniversary . This Valentine's Day we celebrated by returning to miceli's . We would come here for dinner when we were dating fifty years ago. We had forgotten how great and fun it was. Our sever was great. The entertainment was fantastic with such talented singing servers. The ambiance brought back memories of 1965. Although we live a distance, we shall return😀

From the wine bottles hanging from the ceiling to the booths, this place is very comfortable. When we go to the Pantages we always include a meal here. Very good Italian fair and the piano with the signing waiters is enjoyable. We asked them to take their time and we were not rushed.

We went mainly as we heard about their singing waiters and waitresses. But it turns out they are too busy for us on busy days. Our request was unfulfilled even though we told them we came there to celebrate a birthday and specifically for that. We should have called and confirmed! Waiter was good enough to ask the customers to join in the birthday song.

This is a very cool place. We have been here many times and it has always been wonderful. Great food, service, wine and a very cool piano player. They have been here since 1949 and it always takes us back in time, imagining what it was like, in another era. Hollywood Blvd has changed a lot but this restaurant has retained it's old school charm. We always come here when we are in town to see a show at the Pantages or other venue and it is a nice walk for a great meal, great wine and a good time.

Miceli's is just the most perfect little side street Italian restaurant just off Hollywood Boulevard. It's REAL Italian, not manufactured. The food is terrific, the ambience is perfect, if you want a simple, great Italian meal this is the place to go. We met there with a cousin from the East Coast who we hadn't seen in many years, and it was fantastic. We ate, drank, talked and there was no pressure on us, it felt like our own family owned the restaurant (it was a Monday night, and there wasn't anyone waiting or we would have felt more need to hurry). Prices are incredibly reasonable. I am an Italian from New Jersey, and this is one of my two favorite Italian restaurants here in California. It's just like being home. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
