Overview

Antica Pizzeria da Michele is one of the oldest "pizzaiolos" or pizza makers in existence, located at the end of the busy Spaccanapoli. Since Naples could be considered the birthplace of what we typically know as pizza today, the city is replete with pizzerias marked with a little pulcinella (clown) which means that the shop follows VPN (Vera Pizza Napoletana) guidelines. These rules highlight the authenticity of the ingredients and even the time and temperature for pizza. Da Michele is one of those pizzerias that set the rules, as the aroma of fresh mozzarella di bufala happily sizzles on top of a San Marzano tomato sauce. Da Michele's is always crowded and it is also known for its appearance in the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, however, the shop remains simple and unperturbed by all the clamor and fanfare.
