Pizzeria da Michele

Via Cesare Sersale 1, Naples, Italy, 80139

One of this city's three original pizzerias that's 100+ years old. Makes just 2 kinds of pizza: one with cheese and one without -- much like a few other pizza joints around here.

Best vegan pizza I had - Edit

We have tried marinara pizza in multiple places in Naples and the rest of Italy, but the one at da Michele is the true gem. The price is also very pleasant. I recommend take-away. No point in waiting a long line to sit in a rather poorly furnished location.

Pros: pizza, crust, how fast it is made

Cons: long lines if you want a table

Best pizzas we've ever eaten - Edit

This is a small, cheap restaurant restaurant where you drink your Italian beer from plastic glasses. You won't think that Pizzeria da Michele is recommended by the Michelin Guide and has a long hungry queue outside waiting to get a seat. These pizzas were everything else than shabby! The only vegan option was a simple Pizza Marinara (in fact, the only other option was a Margarita). The dough was so juicy, the tomato sauce was amazing made with fresh tomatoes and spiced with oregano and just the right amount of garlic, everything drizzled with a delicious olive oil. Even the cheese lover among us stated that the pizza didn't need cheese! Italians sure know how to make pizza! 😍

Pros: Amazing pizza, Price

Cons: Might be a long waiting time, but it is worth it

Gute - Edit

Ich habe mir sehr wenig von einer Marinara erwartet. Dennoch war das ne Überraschung. Für 5 Euro gabs eine Maxi Pizza, welche perfekt gewürzt und zubereitet war. Der Teig war perfekt.

Pros: Günstig , Eine der besten Pizzen in meinem Leben

Cons: wenig Auswahl aber is egal. Denn die Marinara wird

YUM - Edit

Omg was not expecting the pizza to be that tasty!!! Highly recommend going here and experiencing one of the oldest pizza places in Naples! Was very busy when we went but it seemed you could go straight in and order take away and it only ended up taking about 5 minutes. Eating in is nothing special but go in and watch them pump out 10 pizzas a minute! The marinara pizza is vegan, margarita is vegetarian - these are the only pizzas they make. Cheap prices!


Cons: Bust to eat in

Best Pizza Ever - Edit

We went to Napoli today and there really wasn't much around to see. once we decided to go to this pizza place we considered it as a small restaurant. we came to the restaurant with it being full inside and a queue outside we had a ten minute wait and then got a seat inside. overall, this restaurant is very basic, plastic cups for drinks and only two types of pizzas, we ordered the without cheese option. the pizzas were very cheap for the size (there are 3 different size options). the pizza came within five minutes and was the nicest pizza we have ever had! This pizzeria has also been rated one of the best pizzas worldwide! would definitely recommend it!

Pros: Amazing taste, doesn't take long for food to be made, very cheap and good quantities of food

Cons: only four drink options, can be very busy and can have a big queue., needs to be a bigger size restaurant

big disappointment - Edit

Been there some time ago.
I might have been unlucky, but it has been a big disappointment.
The pizza was nothing special.
Definitely not worth the wait and all the buzz about that place.

Pros: price

Cons: waiting time, disappointing pizza

Amazing pizza! - Edit

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 - Edit

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: http://www.lucianopignataro.com/articolo.php?pl=4569
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 - Edit

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

ijmcm1 29 Apr 2015 - 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?
