World-renowned Italian Neapolitan pizzeria L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele arrives in Los Angeles early 2019. The first U.S. location of the historic pizzeria featured in the film Eat Pray Love, Antica Pizzeria Da Michele is located in the space which once held Hollywood’s beloved Café Des Artistes. Antica Pizzeria Da Michele will serve traditional Neapolitan pizza, using the same recipes and importing the same ingredients used at its origin restaurant. Upon opening, head pizzaiolo Michele Rubini, who trained in Napoli, will serve the concept’s two classic pizzas, Marinara and Margherita, with plans to expand the menu with the location’s own unique twist in the future. Inspired by Italian courtyards, which serve as central gathering points for locals, guests who visit the all-new Antica Pizzeria Da Michele are seated in “il cortile” the restaurant’s quintessential Hollywood garden—surrounded by lush greenery—where they can view pizzas being prepared.

Easily the best pizza in Los Angeles (pizza being the original Italian dish, not any of the American “pizza style” grandchildren). Great location in Hollywood and ambiance is good, albeit maybe trying too much for a pizzeria. Service can be much better, as only the pizza master, the maitre d” and the bartender know why they are there. Today was my third visit and on each occasion our waiter appeared inexperienced and not focused. On all occasions the maitre d’ had to step in - be it to bring a bucket of ice for the Prosecco, to follow up on a drink order, to correct a wrong item on the check.

I’ll keep going there for the amazing food, hopefully the service will catch up.

A great, casual restaurant in an interesting space. Outside on the patio, it is quiet and gorgeous! The pizza, salad and pasta were excellent! Great portions at a reasonable value

Fun atmosphere. Great for a date or friends lunch/dinner date. Lovely Outdoor patio.
As far as the food our Margherita Pizza was super soggy in the middle and crust slightly burnt. Pork Bolognese was okay - enjoyed the fresh pasta tho. Service was okay - not exceptional, not horrible.
Looked like they were hosting a cocktail tasting at a large table next to us. All of the cocktails looked super yummy but I didnt try any as i needed to drive back to our hotel.

We had a friend in town and chose to come here based on the recommendation of a friend. It did not disappoint. Everything was absolutely top notch and I have already recommended this place to five of my friends. I can't wait to go back.

Truly awful service. Had a 7:30 reservation. Didn't get seated until 8:10. Waited another 10 minutes after that to be greeted.

Everything was amazing! We had the calamari to start and shared the cacio e pepe and the marghertia pizza. The ambiance is amazing, we had a spot on their patio in the back and it was a lovely little spot. We would definitely return!

Hands down best pizza (Margherita & Proscuitto/Arugula) experience (thank you Elizabeth Gilbert)!
The pastas were excellent (Vongole/Bolongese) so was the dessert (Bombolini/Caprese)

Staff was friendly, and interactive as well, felt like being a guest in someone's home!

The lunch started out well, but then service dropped off. And, the pizzas arrived and were basically undercooked. We’re Italian. We’ve been to Naples. This pizza was undercooked, even wet where it shouldn’t be. And the Calzone was inside out. Needless to say, we were quite underwhelmed. This after the highest recommendation from friends of ours. It’s possible, I suppose, that because it was the day of the Oscars, their regular chef was preparing for the Oscars and not handling the regular lunch crowd.

Really good food but I wouldn't go back based on that, the food and price balance didn't equal out for me and the waiter wasn't very attentive. Plus the front desk said I could pay for valet inside with credit card or cash outside. I paid with credit inside with tip and when I went outside I let the valet know I tipped to which he said the restaurant doesn't give them the tips. That is super unethical and terribly dishonest. I would ask for my money back but a couple of bucks isn't worth it.

This was my first time at this restaurant. Elegant inside dinning and outdoor dinning with fire pit and heat warmers. Absolutely 5 star service and food. The marinara pizza is perfect for vegans. Super tasty and lite. Shout out to Kayla, amazing customer service. Definitely will be back!

Very simply, as a first time guest we truly enjoyed our evening. Even breezy, with heat lamps, we were very comfortable. Everything we ordered was most enjoyable, appetizers, salads, pastas, pizza and mains, plus dessert were served well, and each dish was most enjoyed. It's a fun spot with a good menu and all that was ordered was well served and enjoyed. We shall return

The moment we walked in we felt like we were special. Everyone was super friendly and our sever had great recommendations and the chocolate lava cake with white chocolate gelato was to die for. Of course the margarita pizza with double cheese did not disappoint. Roasted cauliflower and beet salad was loaded with flavor! Will definitely go back. Went at 3:30 so it was not busy at all. Highly recommended!

This is probably the best pizza you can find in the LA area. And this said from a 100% Italian. This said pricing is a bit on the high level, but I guess that's the price for the great ambiance. Noise level a bit high but I guess it depends if it's weekend or not.

The outdoor area was nice, and we had a great view of the pizza oven. The mixed board and the pizza were both generous portions. Would definitely recommend this place!
