Why locals love it

Pizzeria da Michele, one of the oldest pizzerias in Naples, is very famous for the quality of ingredients used. There are only two varieties of pizza available: Margherita and Marinara, both of which seem to melt in your mouth. The ambience is simple and the prices are relatively low – a pizza and a drink will set you back €7.

Why you should visit it

A visit to Pizzeria da Michele is a must. There’s one thing in particular that has made it famous all over the world – it’s the pizzeria from the film adaptation of “Eat, Pray, Love” starring Julia Roberts. It’s funny to see the photograph of her eating Michele's famous pizza with her hands!

Special tip

Avoid coming here from 1–3 pm, or you could be waiting a couple of hours. The best time to visit is at noon or from 4–6 pm.

I had a pizza there today and it was amazing!! I went there around 1.30 PM and I was finished before in an hour. I was alone, so maybe that's why I was able to get faster service. Also, this place is great for meeting locals. As I was alone, they seated me at a table with some locals and when they left 2 other Italian guys sat next to me. I also met one very cute and old Italian couple who obviously didn't speak any English but we managed with body language. I didn't realise that eating lunch in Napoli can be so much fun :)
