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.

It was my birthday lunch. The hostess didn’t acknowledge it. The hostess did tell us we had 1 hour and 45min to eat. We sat there for 15 min till I made eye contact with a manager. He took our order and the drinks and appetizers came out in 10 min. Nicky came by after our appetizers to tell us she was our waitress. She was nice.
Food was great, service mediocre.
First time out since Covid they did have social distancing protocols in place.

1. Food was EXCELLENT!!!!
2. Customer service was great except for the fact that we waiting 17 minutes before being approached by anyone for a drink. After we ordered, our drinks came about 10 min later, but they forgot to bring our water.
3. Returning asap!

Food and service were great. Even though we booked ahead we were not able to sit on the back patio which is a shame since it was a far better situation than sitting on the patio by the street as trucks made deliveries to the restaurant.

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food and cocktails were very good. In the future, we would try other dishes beyond the pizzas- as it is a full Italian restaurant.
The only issue is the hostess forgot to communicate to the server that it was a birthday. On our way out, I mentioned that they forgot to bring the dessert. The manager made an effort to make things right and sent us home with the mousse- which was delicious! We will probably try it again, as we liked the ambience.

Our walking group eats out every week and we’ve been to many restaurants since 2020. This week we went to L’Antica and it was the first time in nearly a year that we felt like things were going back to normal: the food, vibe, and positive energy were fantastic!

The food and environment were pretty nice. I was able to grab a coffee and a dessert at the end and enjoyed that as well. The service was a little slow, when I wanted to order more I had to wait a good amount of time until the waitress walked into the room to take the order. Overall it was a pretty decent restaurant and I would recommend it.

The food and the service was really good. Especially during the time of COVID, we felt our needs were accommodated, tables were spaces sufficiently far apart and staff were masked at all times.

Last time I was in Italy was August 2019 and I’ve missed the food and travel. Fast forward to dinner Saturday night at L’Antica Pizzeria- the food here is as legit as it gets. Literally- every single menu item is worth it. I think put party ordered about 6 appetizers (do the zucchini flowers and scallops with the truffle cauliflower mash- tears are rolling as I write this from how AMAZING it was), 5 pasta dishes and 2 pizzas and not one a single one disappointed. It was all incredible- from service to plating to ambience to the hospitality! It’s all incredible! I cannot wait to come back! I have officially found my favorite Italian restaurant - identical in taste to how real Italian food should taste. If you haven’t been here, make your reservation and go immediately, if not sooner!!!

Thank you for a wonderful and memorable dinner and evening! Can’t wait to come back soon!

I tried the restaurant this week at lunch with my son for the pizza and was not disappointed! This tasted just like the pizza we eat in Italy! The ambience on their garden patio was very zen. Service was prompt and friendly. They were following all the social distancing requirements. We saw a lot of different pasta dishes, apps and salads come out to other tables and will definitely be back with the entire family for a dinner to try more of the food. Everything looked homemade and delicious!

Inspire of asking for gluten-free, they didn’t prepare and got regular. I’m used to double checking and that’s when they took it back. That’s a huge mistake and then it was prepared in hurry and absolutely bland

I first experienced L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele while visiting Napoli in 2013 with my mother, whose family is from the Campania region of Italy. After tasting pizza at six of the top ten rated pizzerias in Napoli, I concluded that Da Michele was definitely the best pizza I had ever enjoyed; including pizza in New Your City. The best benefit of relocating back to Los Angeles is found at 1534 N. McCadden Place in Hollywood. Francesco, Michele, Antonio and the entire staff make this my absolute favorite restaurant in L.A.
