Description: We know that pizza tastes best when it is wood-fired, that mozzarella should always be freshly made, and that meals are enhanced when paired with the perfect Italian wines. From our service to our atmosphere, our flour to our sauce, this is our tradition-passed down from generation to generation-of Napoli-style pizza. At Michael's Pizzeria, food is heritage.

“Mangia!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Great, cool decor! Hip and modern.
Great area..located at The River complex in Rancho Mirage.
Fresh, unique pizzas--delicious, but not filling.
The dishes are also not your typical fare.
The folks who work there are also very friendly.

“Believe It Or Not”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I found this pizzera from a survey that had LA's best pizza. Or as they would like to say best in the USA. Look I was raised in Bklyn. N.Y.You can't fool me. It's a nice pizzera but it's not the best in the USA. The crust was not thin enough. The calzone has sausage & spinach both have to go.Just give me a regular menu. I can name at least 4 other pizza joints that are better.3 from NYC & 1 from San Diego. I am giving them a very good and I probably should give them an average rating. Go eat for yourself. On top of that the waiter shortchanged me a $1. Took that off his tip.

“We wanted to love it but.....”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went to Michael's Pizzeria after seeing them on the morning news. We ordered two pizzas - the marguerita pizza and a pepperoni pizza. They were both tasty, but the crust was tough and over cooked. We did have the pizzas to go, so maybe they would have been better inside the restaurant. Not sure.....maybe we'll try again....

“Wonderful Pizza”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Authentic Italian pizza. Any topping we liked, even anchovies. Whole olives, not slices. Thin crust. Excellent!
