Amazing pizza!

Posted on 08 / 31 / 2013

This place is a vegetarian restaurant, although only really by circumstance, as it only offers two types of pizza - with cheese or without (Margherita or Marinara). So no hassles over trying to understand the menu! We ordered one of each - we both preferred the Marinara, although the Margherita is pretty damned good too! I would recommend a visit to this place if you are visiting Naples - it is frequented by locals and is just great to go there. The staff don't speak much English, but it isn't hard to let them know what you want! You wont be there long - there is a queue to get in and you pretty much have to leave as soon as you are finished your meal!

Pros: Wonderful pizza!, No hassles over the menu!, Fast service - once you get in.
Cons: Have to queue outside. Take a number.

Worth to visit one or few times

Posted on 12 / 25 / 2011

Of course I was curious to visit Pizzeria da Michele after reading how special history it has. Pizza was really good and big one was really big sized (big-medium-small options). Why so cheap than 6-7$ with a beer? They just said they doesn't need more profits.
With a drink they gave plastic cup... Staff was OK, not really friendly. They hurried people to go out too quickly. Reason was "waiting list." When coming to Pizzeria da Michele, you will see lot of people in front of it. You gotta go inside and ask waiting number. We were waiting 70 minutes in normal weekday to get in.

I liked lot of pizzeria next to this, Trianon founded 1923:
Staff was there really friendly and place was overall nice.

Pros: Good value, Original atmosphere
Cons: Noisy, Too compact

The Best Pizza in the World

Posted on 11 / 18 / 2011

The same family has been making pizza since 1870. Need I say more? This is the original pizza. They only offer two kinds. One with cheese and one without. A pizza with a beverage (soda or beer) is about $6 USD.

This is a bare bones simple old fashioned place that the locals line-up for. It is nothing fancy but that it part of the charm besides the most delicious pizza ever. If you get here early I've never had to wait, but, service is usually rapid and well worth any wait.

There are two other pizza places a few minutes walk away. Both are almost as old, good food , more spacious, comfortable seating and offer a larger menu and more topping choices. They also both offer plenty of dead animal flesh. Also, I dont think anyones pizza is as good as Micheles'.

My favorite place in Naples and the best pizza in the world.

Pros: Delicious, Traditional , Inexpensive
Cons: None

    Listed as vegetarian, but I am no sure that the cheese used is free of meat-based rennet--did not get answer from the management. Does anyone know?
