We heard from many that this was a MUST try. However, I thought it wouldn't be as good as everyone said it was. I mean, how different can a Margherita pizza BE? On the other hand, after waiting in line about an hour or so, we were seated next to these very nice Italian women, and our order was taken. The menu is fairly simple. You order either a Margherita (basil tomato and mozzarella) or a Marinara (tomato only), you choose the size (I recommend normal for your average appetite), you choose how much cheese you want (double?), and if you like, you can order a beer or water. The pizza ended up pleasantly surprising me. It is definitely different than the other Margheritas I've tasted, so I was pretty impressed. The sauce is amazing, the pasta is great, not to mention the mozzarella they use is exceptionally tasty! Highly recommended for anyone who would like to have a fantastic pizza. The only thing is...I wouldn't START here, because if you do, all of the other pizzas won't match up.

First of all, be ready to wait. It will take you from half an hour to over an hour to get seated usually. Second, be ready to sit close or at the same table with somebody else. Third, the staff is kinda cold, not really the best. Forth, they have just two types of pizza: margherita and marinara. That said, the pizza was very tasty, but not extraordinary taken in consideration that it is the only thing they cook. When we got the seat, had to call the waiter to clean our table from the dishes and food remains of those who seated there before us, haven't I done that, probably would have had to wait for ages for someone to do that. Those seated next to us, arrived before us, but did not get the pizza not even after we left the restaurant. So, all in all, chose wisely whether you wanna wait that long....

Very delicious pizza and special experience. People wait with their number and get inside after they are called. Sometimes you share a table with strangers and its cool. Pizza is delicious.

We read so much about this place so we wanted to eat the famous pizza da Michele. We waited 90 mins to get a table and sit maybe 3-4 cm next to another couple. Pizza was average for Naples’ standards so it was really tasty but again nothing special. Don’t bother waiting really, as the manager in our hotel said “well pizza is pizza”

We've waited in line 1.5 hours. They give away numbers and call you by the number in Italian (thank you Google Translate).
Was worth it. Come early so you won't have to wait like we did.
