Italian
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.

Second time I went there. The place was busy maybe to busy so they undercooked the pizza. Overall nice place but SOOO OVERPRICED! Guys you are baking pizzas not golden bars! (I’m half Italian I know a thing or 2 about pizza)

What a gem of a restaurant! Tucked away not far from the Hollywood Blvd tourist area, this restaurant features some truly outstanding Italian food. Known for its pizza my wife and I instead opted for pasta dishes and they did not disappoint. Wonderful al dente pasta with rich, flavorful sauces. Dessert was a flourless chocolate cake chocked full of hazelnut pieces that we shared. Service was terrific and the owner makes it a point to visit the tables and chat with the guests. Like stepping back into an eatery in Napoli itself! Highly recommend.

The food was excellent and was definitely a piece of il mezzogiorno in LA. Great wine list too! Service was pretty terrible and you can tell they are still working out the kinks. I will come back when I’m depressed about not being able to go to Italy, because one bite and you’re there!

Meh! Dined on a Saturday night - it was total chaos. Small children everywhere and some dogs. I'm fine with both but not after 8:30pm on a Saturday..

Fortunately, we were able to sit in the front patio with only adults. Food was mediocre. Pizza Margherita was wet and soggy in the middle; pappardelle with short rib - pasta may have been homemade but was dried out before boiling and was tasteless. Short rib sauce had a wild, unsettling flavor.

Won't be back and don't think this restaurant will last...

I used my birthday as an excuse to introduce friends to Pizzeria da Michele, which is slowly becoming my favorite neighborhood restaurant in Los Angeles. From the perfect Neapolitan pizza, to the calamari, to the melanzane and burrata salad, and the beautifully crafted pastas made for a perfect evening. While the pistachio gelato was delicious, the Torta de la Nona made me weak in the knees.

Great restaurant, great food, a bit pricey, and the server did a lot of up-selling which I didn't totally appreciate. Other than that, it's a very lovely outdoor space with great design and delicious food!

With the passing of Wilshire, this is my favorite restaurant with outdoor seating. The owners have created a wonderful ambiance with a staff that is on the ball, without taking themselves to seriously. The manager, drops by tables from time and is both delightful and seriously concerned with the feelings of the guests.
A great place to make one feel better after a trying day.

Considering that some reviewer suggested that the only thing worthwhile would be the pizza, my friend the server was a treasure; the patio relaxed & comfortable - highly recommend for a fuss-free dinner!

The food was really good I am willing to give it another try. But service was very slow. Staff was friendly, don't get me wrong. But after taking a long time to finally come to our table and take our order, I don't think it was wise to start telling us about your day. Hungry people want food, not stories.

Overall, it was very good. The calamari in the salad was raw, and nobody offered to give us something else. They also didn’t take it off the bill. It was very quiet, and the pizzas were amazing.

Premesso che siamo si Napoli e ho mangiato la pizza di Michele più volte , il locale e stupendo L accoglienza ed il servizio anche , la pizza e buona superstore a qualunque altra pizza di LA unico neo L impasto forse non maturato abbastanza e quindi risulta non digeribile ( rimasto sullo stomaco ). Resto degli ingredienti buoni.
