Part of L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele, the world-renowned Neapolitan pizzeria, debuted in the heart of Hollywood in 2019 as the first U.S. location. The restaurant’s authentic Neapolitan pizza is made using the same centuries-old recipe, techniques, and Italian imported ingredients at its origin restaurant in Naples, established in 1870. Head Pizzaiolo Michele Rubini helms the famed pizzeria, that also serves many Italian and Mediterranean specialties. Guests who visit L’ Antica Pizzeria da Michele are welcomed into beautiful “courtyards”, which serve as central gathering points for they can view pizzas being prepared in the restaurant’s imported stone oven.

Owner Francesco Zimone, who designed each restaurant, was inspired by his childhood summers in his hometown of Naples, the atmosphere is classic Italian meets modern Californian. Blue and white tiles adorn the walls, and natural wood and Baltic stone are incorporated throughout the terrace and interior.

“ I’m having a relationship with this pizza”
Julia Roberts (Eat Pray Love – L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele -2010- Naples)

In Italy, L’ Antica Pizzeria da Michele is a tiny shop that only sells two pizzas — Marinara or Margherita, and drew praise for its thin, flavorful pies long before Gilbert’s nod in Eat Pray Love and the subsequent Hollywood appearance in the movie adaptation starring Julia Roberts.
