Ask Neapolitans where the best pizza in town is and you’re sure to get a different answer every time. However, one name will crop up frequently in your enquiries: L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele.
On any given night, L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is besieged by pizza-hungry locals and tourists alike, and was made famous worldwide by its appearance in the 2010 movie Eat, Pray, Love, starring Julia Roberts.
