Trip to NAPLES - SEPTEMBER 2009 - part 3: Pizzeria Da Michele
Pizeria Da Michele is considered the best in Naples and we have to agree with that. Small, hole-in-the-wall space that has been serving the same pizzas for 140 years. The place is extremely popular with locals, and even more so with tourists. They told me they make 500 pizzas a day. Sometimes there are so many people in line that we'd rather walk away. There are only 2 pizzas on the menu - Margherita (tomato sauce, basil, fior di latte) and Marinara (tomato sauce and some herbs, no cheese) . Pizzas cost about 5 euros. Only 2 options, but so amazingly good. Perfect even. I love love love this pizza. I know Naples is supposed to be the best place to get pizza, but even there it is evident that making a perfect Neapolitan pizza is not an easy process. In many places it is just alright, in many places it's bad, and only few places make it on point.
