Welcome to the home of Neapolitian pizza purists! A thin base, thick edges, very high-quality tomatoes and mozzarella are all on the menu! Here you'll see the local pride for the legendary Naples pizza, which was invented here and which is still going strong. In 1889,  Raffaele Esposito a restaurateur, created a pizza with the colours of the Italian flag for princess Marguerite of Savoy, based on tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. The Margherita pizza was born. At Da Michele's, the origins of the pizza are adhered to, with only two varieties being served: Margherita (tomatoes, mozzarella and basil) and Marinara (tomatoes, garlic and oregano). Be prepared for a long wait at this legendary pizzeria, which is thronged by Neapolitians and tourists alike !
