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.

We were not advised of the one hour and forty five minute time limit, which could have been problematic, but it was not and we could not have had a nicer evening.
The service, food and ambiance were all amazing and we very much look forward to our next visit.

This was my first time for lunch and without eating pizza. Although the pizza that was being served at the tables next to us made me question my choice, the other brunch/lunch options were excellent. The octopus salad was filling and delicious and would have been good to share as a first course with a pizza next time. Our waiter was very helpful in both our cocktail and lunch selections. the affogato is my go-to dessert, lunch or dinner. Both the back and front patios are spaced for social distancing and compared to other lunch options at makeshift parking lot patios, L'Antica's patios are very comfortable and contribute to the excellent overall dining experience.

Seriously loved this place. The food was so good (pizzas to die for!) and with the money spent. The owner came over to chat and was so lovely and the ambience is so adorable. Plus, we felt so safe and distanced from those around us. Definitely my new fav spot for date night.

We absolutely loved Antica! Great pizza, we didn’t try the pastas, and loved the overall layout of the restaurant. Though I have to say that the pizzas were slightly too salty for my taste.
We want to come back and try the pastas.

I absolutely love it when owners come out and chat with guests, even if it’s just for a quick second, it definitely means a lot and heightens the experience. Our server was super sweet and did a great job recommending the dessert! Everything we ate was absolutely delicious and is getting us to come back and try the other items in their menu.
Definitely worth checking out!

What a unique experience! Took my husband for his bday dinner. We had such a good time and the food was amazing! Shovaugn was our waitress and she put us on to what else is great to try the next time we visit! Sidenote; my husband the “chef” is pretty critical and all he had positive reviews too!

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.
