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.

Food didn’t taste well. Seemed liked they had the food frozen and popped it out and put it to warm up. All the food items comes out 5 min after we ordered!!’ Cute locations but will not go back because of the food!!’

Food was amazing and the back had nice ambiance but have never been told at the beginning that we had an « out time » for our table lol. The owner was very charismatic but took his mask off and got touchy with some people at our table. I would still go back for the great food and cocktails

The food is so delicious! We loved the eggplant and burrata appetizer amd the bread pudding for dessert. The margherita pizza at L'Antica is our favorite pizza in Los Angeles. It was lovely to sit outside on the patio by the fire and enjoy some great food.

It was my first time visiting L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele and it was simply amazing. Especially during these COVID times, they took extra precautions like taking your temperature upon check-in, making sure patrons wore masks if they were inside, having digital menus, as well as service staff wearing shields/masks. The ambiance was incredible, but what was even more incredible was the authentic italian food. Truly was "chef's kiss"!

I went here for my brother’s birthday and it was amazing!! The staff is so nice and attentive. We sent outside cause of COVID but it was so nice. The seating area was so cute and I loved the ambience. The food was so good. You can really taste that they use the highest quality of ingredients. I had a mojito and it was great. I would definitely come back.

our waitress kinda forgot about us after we said we needed more time to think over the order, so maybe waited over 20 minutes for her to get back to us, but the overall experience was great..from food to vibe of the place..love how tables were appropriately spaced out and loved how we were seated by the fireplace and the tree..so magical

Fantastic experience at L'Antica Pizzeria, per usual. We always feel safe when we go to this restaurant with all of the outdoor space and the cleanliness. We love the owner and management team and they do a great job of following protocols and sticking to them. The food keeps getting better and better, and I recommend that if you want a good, traditional Italian meal, with amazing pizza, pasta, and fresh ingredients. Then you better head over to L'Antica. Enjoy!

My only disappointment was that I accidentally left my to go box when I went to the restroom and I when I went back to get it it was already thrown away. Almost half of my $20.00 margherita pizza was in the box. I wish they had set it aside knowing that I may return to get it after realizing I forgot it, that's all.

The food was good but the service was below average. I was disappointed from the moment we got there. The hosts made sure to finish their conversation before they greeted us. Then our reservation was for 9:45pm and we arrived at 9:40pm to make sure we were seated as we were very hungry. After waiting about 15 mins, I called the young man from the host stand over to give us an accurate wait time and he non chalantly said “hey what’s up”, totally unacceptable for a dining experience such as this. He said it would be “just a moment” and we waited 15 additional minutes. Then once seated we waited 10 minutes for water and we only saw our server twice. Thank goodness for the helpful busboy. I would go again if someone else was paying. I won’t be spending my money there again.

After visiting the original location in Naples a few years ago, we were excited to find the Hollywood location. After getting take out a few weeks in a row we decided to meet up with friends and dine in the open patio. The pizza was amazing like always. We had the entire front patio to our party of 8. Great food overall. Favorite pizza was the pesto. Definitely a must try. We tried the bread pudding for dessert, it was ok but not something I would order again personally.

This is what you call classy but not presumptuous. They have the best pizza with prosciutto and arugula and their Beet salad had just the right amount of goat cheese. Their buffalo mozzarella plate comes with small chopped olives which gives the salad a nice salty flavor. Food is always excellent and the patio is so charming. We will keep coming here. We also bought a gift card for a client because we know this is a great place to recommend.

I usually dont leave reviews. But I have to say this place was great. Made a reservation online. We sat within 10 minutes of our reservation. Food was INCREDIBLE. Best calamari I have ever had. The eggplant was also amazing. Pizza was some of the best I have found on the west coast. Will def be going back. As far as covid procedures they were on top of it. I haven't gone to a restaurant since march, but I felt pretty safe here. Entire staff was wearing gloves and face masks. Temperature of everyone is checked at the door prior to entering, the tables were distanced, and the second the table was turned over it was thoroughly cleaned.

We participated in Dine LA menu so we ordered from the Prix-fixe menu. My friend got the citrus salad and I got the meatballs for our first course. My friend’s salad came out 10 minutes earlier than my meatballs so she was done with her first course by the time I received mine. Then she got her second course of zucchini pasta also about 7-8 minutes before my second. It would have been nice to eat at the same. Our waiter came to check on our food when I was about halfway through my pizza. I was originally waiting to get his attention so I could get some chili flakes but gave up. The food was delicious as always but the service was just OK. The busboy provided better service than our waiter. I was reassured by the masks and obvious care taken for protection against COVID.

The pizza is an obvious winner, but don't skip the cocktails which strongly rival those from most bar lounges in the Hollywood area.
