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.

Outstanding! Must go. I was stationed in Bella Napoli in the Navy & this is thoroughly authentic but with a bit of a twist on the LA version of classic Neapolitan pizza & food. Even had the charm & passion as the owner came to speak with us. Andiamo. Go now

We love this place and go whenever we are in Los Angeles. It is the best pizza we've ever had outside of Naples. The first time we had the Monatanara pizza, which was made with deep-fried pizza dough and it was delicious. We went back, planning to get the Caserta pizza because we'd been to that area during a trip to Italy a couple of years ago, and the toppings sounded delicious.

We visited during COVID, after restaurants re-opened, but only for outside dining. We'd planned to use GrubHub to bring it to us where we were staying, but they were closed on the 4th of July so we made reservations and went to the restuarant the next day instead. It was definitely worth the wait.

The Caserta pizza wasn't on the menu that day, but "Piece of the Pie" was. It was like a margherita (which we've had) but fancier, and a part of the proceeds went to local charities - win, win!

Everything about this place makes it a keeper, and we visit whenever we are in the area. The owner - when contacted through Yelp - was super responsive about being closed on the 4th and told us to contact him if for any reason we weren't able to get a reservation the next day. The staff at the restaurant the next day was great, and the food, as always, was wonderful. It's also great to get some Campania region Falnghina wines when we go here. We discovered them while in the region in Italy, but have found they can be difficult to come by in the states. It's great to get a glass (or two) here while we are having our great Naples-style pizza.

I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in or around the Hollywood area looking for authentic Italian food. It's definitely worth visiting if you'll be in (or live in) the area.

Food was good and I don’t want to be too critical because they may be out of practice due to coronavirus, but the service was not very good. Only saw the server once at the beginning to take our order then never again. Wanted to order another bottle of wine and never had the chance and the rest of the wait staff said they couldn’t take our order.

Fantastic ambience & service. Love the pizzas! Everything I've tried so far on the menu has been delicious! Only suggestion I could make would be to leave the artichokes off the capricciosa pizza as it made it too "wet".

Overall, we liked this place. Nice atmosphere, nice layout and decor, friendly and attentive staff. The only thing that bugged me was... a drink my friend ordered was not to his liking at all, so we got him something else. When the bill came however, it had not been removed. At other places I've been to, you don't pay for something you didn't like and sent back, in the interest of customer satisfaction. However I know that some places that are trying to be high-end won't do that. I bugs me however.

Other than that I enjoyed the place and would go back.
