Hollywood: L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele Is Now Open

Margherita pizza



L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is now open. The famed Neapolitan pizza spot was in the movie, Eat Pray Love and has been open in Italy since 1870.

The Hollywood restaurant is the first location for the US and is in the old Cafe des Artistes space which has been transformed. I used to love going to Cafe des Artistes and I’m glad there’s new life there.

I got to try a couple of slices a few weeks ago. The cheese was very popular but you can’t go wrong with Margherita. Head pizzaolo Michele Rubini cooks each pie for 1 minute in a wood fired pizza oven.

A full menu is coming soon. In Italy, pizza guys don’t handle the rest of the kitchen so I’m looking forward to the rest of the menu which will be Mediterranean.

Buon Appetito!
