There is no better place to eat pizza in Naples! This pizzeria does only the traditional Margherita and Marinara pizza. The taste is excellent, the price is good and the waiting is well rewarded!

Had heard a lot about this place by local colleagues. Thankfully and sadly when we turned up there were no queues as had been expected. Beer water or a choice of two types of pizza. Using this formula you think they would do it very well. Sadly for both of us the pizzas were under cooked. We both prefer our... More

Arrived around 3 pm for a late lunch on Dec 2016, hoping that a late lunch will allow us to lunch without a crowd but boy were we wrong. There was a 1.5 hour wait and a ton of locals waiting to be seated. We opted for take out instead as we were starving, and offered a 10 minute wait.... More

Really amazing pizza. Dough so light, soft and chewy. Pretty quick and bustling service. V limited menu - only 2 basic pizzas available. Very unassuming entrance. Be prepared to queue, but worth it. Turn up before 11.30am if you don't fancy queueing.

We were told this is the best pizza. The birthplace of pizza so we had to check it out. It's truly amazing. Simple yet fantastic. We Americans think we need to pile tons of toppings and flavors when in actuality this place lets you savor the flavors of the quality sauce, mozzarella and basil. The price was 5 euro for... More

We came there to try their famous pizza. Have to admit - that was a bait. The entrance of this pizza joint was full of people, you can't understand how it works. Trash bins all around. We waited for 20 minutes and left. Why do you need to spend time in this uncertainty while you can have a great pizza... More

Every time I am in Naples visiting my family I come here. The pizza is as authentic as it gets. Anyone who rates this place poorly does so because they don't understand this type of pizza; they are expecting something very different and commercial. Waiting in line is part of the experience. If you want an authentic experience of what... More

We arrived in Naples earlier today from Split & Rome.. it's been a long road (sea). After a good nap we decided to explore a little and stop in for Pizza. Where to go for PIZZA in Naples? Well, no question we needed to try the original and only pizza at Michele. We located very easily (4-5 blocks from where... More
