Da Michele makes two types of pizza - marinara (tomato sauce and oregano)and margherita with mozzarella and a leaf of basil. That's it. The pizza is sublime. The space is also simple and authentic. Take a number at the door if there is a line. And enjoy the line, it's Naples, and the napoletani are a travelling theater. Nastro Azzurro... More

I know it's easy to be wise afterwards, but... This place is a typical tourist trap. Known as a brand, they started behave a such. I don't mind waiting, if I get something that worths. Instead, you go to something that resembles to a public toilette. There are three rooms, and two don't have windows, ie. there are windows which... More

I discovered Michele 15 years ago when I was at the university. The. i came with my fiancée 10 years ago and yesterday I went back with my wife. In 15 years nothing has changed. The place is still very very basic, you still have to queue to have a place, you still share the table with someone else BUT... More

You have to turn up and take a ticket and then wait outside for a table (took us 20 minutes but there in off season - there is talk of others waiting up to 2 hours at peak time of year!). Once inside it is reminiscent of a public toilet - but who cares? You are there for the pizza... More

We loved the pizza here. Is it touristy and crowded? Yes! Was it worth the hassle? Yes! We took a taxi from the train station and the taxi driver actually stayed and waited while we ate. I'm so glad we took the time to go.

The Pizza I had here was very different from what I've previously had. The cheese was really tasty! I suggest you order 1 for 2 people, split and eat as it tastes best when its hot. Finish it and order another one. Worth the visit.

Arriving from Roma, my friend from Napoli took me to this place for dinner... Outside, we waited our turn for 45 minutes... It was worth for what I found once inside the pizzeria : lovely place ! And what to say about my pizza doppia mozzarella : so big, so tasty and so cheap ! I recommend easily this place... More

When you have to wait for 20 minutes outside a pizzeria you expect to have a great pizza experience, especially considering how Julia Roberts' character advertised it in Eat Pray Love. However all you get is a soggy bottom and barely any mozzarella pizza, which tastes more like American string cheese rather than fantastic Italian fior di latte or burata.
