Antica Pizzeria da Michele .. Via Cesare Sersale ⅓
The pizzeria that Julia Roberts made famous. What?Yes, for those of you who may not know, Julia Roberts ate pizza there at da Michele in the motion picture movie Eat Pray Love, and this pizzeria became World Famous. It was already famous in Naples as making some of the best pizza in town, but after Julia Robers ate her pizza there in the movie, the place became insanely famous, and now you have to wait on line forever (1 to 2 hours) to get in. Like the Negroni and the Aperol Spritz, I was way ahead of the curve when it comes to all things Italian in Italy, as compared to the rest of America, I first ate Pizza at da Michele way back in 1986, long before Julia Roberts could ever even dream of the place, I was there.” Yes the pizza is dam good. In fact one of the best in all of Naples, and I Love it, but it’s still not my favorite. All that matters is that it’s one of the best in Napoli, I love it, and if you want to wait in line, try it yourself, get that instagram moment, yes, it is with going to, so go already. And you should know that you can’t get pizza with all sorts of toppings as you might think. They only make two kinds of Pizza at da Michele, the most famous one Pizza Margherita, made with tomato, basil, and mozzarella cheese. The Pizza Marinara doesn’t have any cheese, just tomato, garlic, and oregano.
