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.

We had a delightful lunch outside after seeing the Van Gogh Immersion show that was very close by. We found the restaurant a bit hard to find if you are not familiar with the area. You can park in the building about 3 doors south. Well worth the effort to discover it. Really charming, great food and helpful friendly service. We will definitely be coming back to this hidden gem!

Fabulous experience by girlfriend has been to both locations both in LA and Italy! The pizza is simply world class, we were both so impressed can’t wait to return! We were celebrating a post birthday we mindfully ordered the bread pudding and tart, the favors beautifully danced in our month with deliciousness.

Been a few times now to Da Michele, the pizzas are amazing but the execution CAN be hit and miss depending on timing in my experience. Such a thin perfect pizza has to be out of the oven on a plate and at the table in seconds. There's no room for delay. This trip - absolutely perfect. Pizza was warm, crust was unreal - so, so good. Everything else as always perfect, the arancini are just a favorite, service was superb (thanks Drew!).

Great dining place in the heart of the crowded Hollywood boulevard, yet able to keep it very quiet and intimate. We dined in the back patio and everything was perfect, from the setup, service and most importantly food !

Made rezzies way ahead of time as we were coming to Hollywood from the South Bay for a show. At first I thought we had the wrong address then realized this gem was tucked away, hidden from the masses, you had to know it was there to find it. When I walked in I immediately knew it would be one of our new go-to’s. The ambience was welcoming and warm; there were multiple dining experiences from a front porch to a wonderful bar area to the patio with a wood burning fireplace and the pizza kitchen - encased in glass so you can watch (including stools for dining directly in front of it!); the service was fantastic, the menu was exciting (not a lot for vegans, fyi) the pizza was remarkable and the specialty drinks were fantastic! Just a wonderful experience “out” after having so few these last couple of years. This place made the drive, and the wait, worth it!

Such a great experience. Staff was very friendly and informative about the portion sizes, flavors, and what the uniqueness of every dish. It was mine and my girlfriends first time but the waiter aided us to finding what was the right choice for us. The scenery is also very beautiful. 10/10. Will be coming back again.

My boyfriend and I went here to celebrate his birthday and they exceeded our expectations. Our server Joe was very nice and very attentive. Overall nice hidden restaurant, the lighting and the mood in the patio made our night wonderful. There was a lot of choices to choose from when it came to their menu, when the food arrived we couldn’t wait to eat!! Thank you L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele for making our night a date to remember!!

The service was very slow, we had to flag down our server multiple times for service. The food was alright, and when asking to get a box for the pizza they brought a small to go box that did not fit one piece of pizza and the busser was the one that noticed and brought a pizza box. I wouldn’t recommend based on service

Overall great experience! Waiting about 10-15 minutes until our table by the fireplace was ready, we enjoyed a drink at the bar. Took a while for our waitress to greet us, understandable as right now everyone is facing staffing shortages. When our pizzas arrived, the Blanca pizza was completely burnt, a piece of it was even cut out by the kitchen I’m assuming before sending to table. Didn’t seem as bad at first, but when I started to eat the second sliced the bottom was entirely burnt. I felt bad to send it back, as again I understand that mishaps happen and staff is under stress. But didn’t expect this, would have thought quality check would have happened prior to sending burnt crust pizza to the table. However, we didn’t let that ruin the night. Celebrated husband’s belated birthday and we’d definitely be back for the best pizza in LA!

Delicious food but way too expensive! Pizza really tasty but small, pasta good, not awesome and really good salad with too much dressing. Really tasty but not worth the money.

Great food, excellent service from our server, Kenneth, and a lovely tour of the restaurant after dinner. We dined mid-afternoon on a Sunday and it was just lovely. The beet salad is amazing and the pizza even delighted my most discerning Italian partner. We’ll definitely return to try the homemade pasta (that we admired from afar at the table next to us). Hope to be back soon.

There's not a bad thing I can say about this place. The servers and waiters were so nice and checked on my party more than once just to make sure we were having the best time that we could. The design of the restaurant, the furniture, and the ease of being able to flow from indoor seating to outdoor seating just adds to the experience. The waiter recommended the coal fired pizza, the Tiramisu, and frittelle di Frankie, and we were not disappointed. The food is delicious and perfectly prepared. I can't wait to go back again.

Was a great experience! We met the owner and since they did not have sausage for pizza at the time we ordered our food, he gave us a free sausage pizza to go since it arrived later. He was very friendly and we discussed location of his new location in Long Beach. Their pizza is fantastic!
