Best pizza in the world?

Why did we dine here? – Da Michele is a legendary pizza place in Naples, Italy, established way back in 1870. We were here to explore the origins of Neapolitan pizza and had to give this legendary place a visit. Being major fans of pizza, dining at an authentic Restaurant like Da Michele was a pilgrimage. The recent book Eat, Pray, Love mention this place.

Instead of waiting in line for a table, we decided to go inside and order a pizza to go. This is considerably faster.

Insider Tip – Go early to avoid the lines. Take the Rick Steves Naples walk, it ends near Da Michele

Service – Da Michele had reasonable service. The pizzas come out fast and they are used to serving a ton of people.
Verdict – Da Michele serves up a stellar authentic experience that every pizza fanatic needs to try. We preferred the Margherita from Pizzeria Starita in Naples, but either is far superior to what we have in the San Francisco Bay Area. The closest pizza to this version would be Una Pizza Napoletana in San Francisco. Cash only.

Be sure to get Gelato from the historic Gelataria across the street and down the block – Polo Nord – Via Pietro Colletta 41/43
