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.

Service was bad. Took 25 mins to get a refill after waiting 15 to even get noticed. Check was left on my table and took another 20 to get charged. Had to go up to a manager and ask if they could charge me because the server was taking long. Not good at all.

The food wasn't stellar, but decent enough to enjoy on a Tuesday night out. They were out of a few wines we wanted to try, but we ended up with a Vermentino that did not disappoint. The ambiance was lively, and the aesthetic was a plus for us.

The food and the service were fantastic. The server helped with wine and food suggestions since this was our first visit. It definitely won't be the last! Atmosphere is very chic and comfortable.

Talk about an Italian oasis in the middle of DTLA. Hard to find but talk about an incredible spot for just about anything - date, business lunch, brunch, girl's night...

My best friend and I have been to Italy several times and the food here is on point. We had the pleasure of sipping Ferrari Rosé while enjoying the beet salad, margherita pizza and rounded it out with the Alla Norma pasta.

Thankful to have found this hidden gem. Epic food, friendly service, dope ambiance. Just go and enjoy!!

The pizza lived up to its reputation. Close your eyes and you’re in Florence. Crust was charred perfectly, great texture and flavor.
But the fiori di zucca, aka flash fried squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta, looked like corn dogs without a stick and tasted worse. At $20 bucks, it’s a high price to pay for what looks like something frozen from a box.
All in all, a disappointment.
But the pizza? Perfetto!

This is the best kept secret in LA. The food and the tucked away corner are perfect, the place is so damn cute. I almost don't want to leave a review because I don't want anyone else to know how good it was...!

We arrived late to our reservation, to make the long story short, we got lucky and one the investors of the restaurant was there that night. He was very nice and got us a table.
We had a great time! Thank you :)

It was good but we got seated pretty slowly although the seating area was really empty. The greeting host was quite slow but the person taking our order feels pretty rushed. The food was good.

I really wanted to love this place but it was disappointing. We waited for 45 minutes to be seated even with a reservation (a reservation that was weirdly hard to get, we had to book far in advance and could still only get end of the night).

The major bummer was the waiting lobby with big groups of unmasked people that stood around talking and drinking which made us feel really unsafe in pandemic era as it is a close space and we were there for 45 minutes(!!!)

The pizza was luke warm when it arrived at our table - for the pretty steep cost of the food and the long wait, it was not worth it. It might be a better spot after COVID as the patio was really pretty. Sorry for the complaining review but this is my truth lol

The food was gross.. and I'm not even a picky eater! The bolognese pasta tasted like canned chilli. The pizza was practically falling apart because the toppings were to wet (the dough was burned, too). Also, I asked 2 staff members for a napkin on 2 occasions, and both forgot to bring it..

The only pros are (a) the beautiful ambiance and (b) their delicious (but overpriced) cocktails.

Overall, it wasn't worth the price! The food sucked and the service was mediocre at best.

I had the best 21st birthday dinner here! My waitress was so kind & even gave me my shot with a birthday candle. The food was amazing & so were the drinks! Even the owner was friendly and checked in on each table to see how they were enjoying the food. Such a lovely place and I can’t wait to come back soon!

I brought my friends here that were visiting from New York. They love pizza and I knew this place could rival NYC pizza and pasta! The food never disappoints. I only wish the hostess could have accommodated a better table since I requested a table in the larger back room and something warmer. The service from everyone else was top notch and very personalized.

Best authentic Italian in the city!! Must try everything on the menu! If you like pizza highly recommend Capricossa or Truffle! Great flavor and the dough is amazing! You're greeted at least 3 times by both the GM and staff. Adequate amount of heating lamps and the fireplaces really give the dining area an esthetically pleasing look!

I love this place, have been a handful of times now and they Area always very consistent. Food is amazing, servers are attentive, and ambiance is so cute! They have a small indoor space but a majority of their space is outdoors and has very nice decor.

I've eaten here many times in the past. It feels new or updated. the calamari was good. But the pizza had a little wateryness to it and was warm and not hot. I've seen great reviews of stuff and know people love this place. so maybe just an off day. I'll try them again. The ambiance is great.
