Breakfast
World-renowned Italian Neapolitan pizzeria L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele arrives in Los Angeles spring 2019. The first U.S. location of the historic pizzeria featured in the film Eat Pray Love, L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is located in the space which once held Hollywood’s beloved Café Des Artistes. L’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 L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is seated in “il cortile” the restaurant’s quintessential Hollywood garden—surrounded by lush greenery—where they can view pizzas being prepared in L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele’s signature stone oven. Designed by Owner Francesco Zimone, the atmosphere is classic Italian meets modern Californian décor with blue and white tiles adorning the walls, and natural wood and Baltic stone incorporated throughout the terrace and interior.

We were greeted by two very warm receptionists. Our server was delightful. We had, at least, two other gentlemen come over to the table to make sure we were having a pleasant dining experience. We were. It was my daughter's Birthday and she had spent her Birthday last year at your restaurant in Naples. She said this meal was just as good as last year. We'll be back!

The food, presentation, and service overall experience was OUTSTANDING!! If I can complain about anything it would be no heat lamps outside as it was a bit breezy on day I went. But I’m sure those are on the way. Give them a try for sure

The gentleman manning the front hostess area was rude. After he took our temperature he just said "go sit on the couch." Have some damn manners. Is it so hard to say "Please, have a seat on the couch." Didn't appreciate the snarky tone.

L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele is one of our favorite restaurants. This review is long overdue. Truly made me so happy to be able to eat here. The patio is just a wonderful setting. Because of the current situation tables are spaced properly. The food is simply mouth watering. We always start with a Margherita pizza. Theirs is the best in LA. We enjoy the beet salad or sometimes take a special. The pasta with short rib was really enjoyed by my Husband. I had the Branzino which is always fresh and tasty. The steamed fresh vegetables that come with it are scrumptious. Highly recommend to everyone. We passed on desert this time as we ordered plenty but they are all mouth watering.

My first time there was excellent. The service, food was terrific. My second time there was ok. The food was a disappointment. Our pizza crust was burnt on the bottom, my first slice and bit I tasted burnt crust and it ruined it for me. That first bite is important. My salad was good. My friend ordered the pork chop and it was okay. Not great. The side of potatoes were. It cooked all the way. They were still hard in the middle and crunchy. The service felt rushed. They did inform us of the 90 minute time allowance, but the server was giving us the desert menu before we were even done with the main course.

My husband had dined here before and his first experience was amazing! So when my sister and brother in law came to town we decided to take them out to a good LA pizza place! We were all looking forward to it but unfortunately the service was not the best. It took 15 mins for us to get water, that too we only got after my husband got up to ask for it. The pizza wasnt as hot we were hoping it to be and it was a bit soggy, though the pasta we got was warm. Again, perhaps our server was distracted or just busy.

I would still recommend the place bc the vibe is great and maybe it was just an off day (Monday night) for the server and restaurant :)

This was my second time here in two weeks; that’s how good the pizza is. Had eaten at the original in Naples 16 years ago! This time I tried the bread pudding dessert and it was the best I’ve ever had! Comes with a small scoop of vanilla gelato, which was outstanding. It’s a warm and cosy place, especially with the fireplaces.

Food is incredible. I felt like I was in Italy again.
Our server and the managers who touched our table were lovely.
The hostess left me standing in front for several minutes, without any acknowledgement. I had a reservation - in fact, my party was already sat; I just needed to check in and have my temperature taken.

Aside from being the spot that my fiancé proposed to me, it is definitely my go to spot for future celebratory dinners. The food was excellent with practically no wait time in between each course we ordered. We ordered the mixed board, the margarita pizza, and the lava cake. I recommend making a reservation, it does get busy even on weekday nights.

I really like this place. My 6th or 7th time there. I love the Napolitano-style Pizza. The food is delicious. You can bring a nice date or just hang out with the bros. It's casual of course. Our server was really attentive. I recommend this place to all Italian food lovers, not just pizza. For dessert, I ordered the tiramisu. It was out of this world delicioso!!! I always have a great time there.

Beautiful patio, amazing waiter ‘Jonny’? I think was his name.
The Pizza was 100% disappointing! Under cooked , wet and soggy.
We would not go back due to the pizza being so underwhelming.
