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.

A great place to reconnect with friends and colleagues alike. The Genovese pasta was to die for, and the Gnocco Fritti appetizer so satisfying

Food is always fabulous. Definitely my favorite restaurant these days! I love the atmosphere. Music was a bit loud for a while. I know - if it’s too loud you’re too old. Love this place!!

I love this restaurant. The service has been spotty lately and the wait times are long, even with a reservation--but hopefully that will get resolved soon. The food is delicious.

Calamari came out overcooked but was providing a fresh batch that was perfect. Lemon drops were fantastic but glass was sticky. Ambiance is nice would love to come back and see at night. Hidden gem

We wanted to love this place so much. Sadly…. The food wasn’t even good. Soggy pizza. Over zucchini flowers and arancini with not so good sauce. Maybe due to the over fried, I’m not sure. The only item that was even remotely good, were the Gnocco Fritto. Our server was amazing. That was a huge plus. And the restaurant set up was nice. Great use of space. But unfortunately, we won’t recommend or come back.

Overall, disappointed in flavor and value…Pizza not that great :( kind of soggy in the middle , even after asking for well done/crispy crust. I think they put too much cheese. Zucchini flowers way over-breaded. Nice ambiance (besides the flies) and service.

One of our favorite places but they are experiencing some real ramping up issues post pandemic to supply and staffing which was a real disappointment to the caring and diligent service expected for the prices. Brought the subject up with management on the visit, and they listened and apologized with some excuses. The management issues should not trickle down to the customer experience. Food is always great as it was this time.
I have had a large party and been multiple times so speaking from experience. They have grown substantially since opening so hopefully they will grow their staff training too.

Food was delicious! The only downside is sitting on the patio. There are too many flies. Spent most of the time swatting flies from my food.

Had another great experience here. No wait time despite the fact that they were packed to the rafters; I got the table on the patio, like I requested; the hostess who seated me was the loveliest Brazilian woman who spent a few minutes with me chatting about our respective home countries (despite the fact that they were packed to the rafters and she was deluged with people); the manager (I believe it was the manager!) came by our table several times just to ensure we were 100% happy and getting everything we need; the place is just beautiful in its design and with the marvelous patio with the trees decorating it and a view into the chefs' kitchen; the food was wonderful, the pizza sublime, and they make a mean lemon drop! My friends and I were definitely 100% happy and cannot wait to return again. Thank you for what I consider one of the best dining experiences in LA (or anywhere).

My friend and I were enjoying the evening. It was his birthday. The pizzas had been great. The waitress was lovely. We had been there for two hours and were about to pay the check when the manager came up to us, in a brusk manner, and asked if he could take the check now. The restaurant was half-filled. No one was waiting to be seated. My waitress was nowhere to be seen. So I couldn't understand why the manager was hustling us to leave. He seemed angry. Really unpleasant. We paid the check and stayed another 15-20 minutes. When we left, no one was waiting to be seated. What happened?
