The famous Miceli’s Italian Restaurant in Hollywood
The famous Miceli’s Italian Restaurant in Hollywood and Universal City, is home of the singing waiters and waitresses. They will serenade you with Italian arias, musical show tunes, classical standards…. all while you dine.
Miceli’s was established in 1949, when Carmen and Sylvia Miceli gathered together their meager funds and, joined by sisters Angie and Millie and brothers Tony and Sammie, opened Miceli’s Pizzaria — Hollywood’s first pizza house.
Using family recipes brought from Sicily via Old Chicago, the Miceli’s had people lined up and down the block, savoring their opportunity to feast with the Miceli family.
Throughout the years, Miceli’s in Hollywood and its sister location in Universal City, have drawn dignitaries and celebrities galore. People from JFK and Richard Nixon and the Beatles to today’s stars like Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler, and Julia Roberts. What brings people back, besides the terrific food, is the unique atmosphere and super-friendly service, not to mention the live entertainment.
On private tours of Los Angeles I like to take people by the Hollywood location off of Hollywood Blvd. on Las Palmas to show them where it is and showcase the Frank Sinatra mural. The white text to the left of Frank are some of his most memorable lyrics……….
” The best is yet to come and won’t that be fine
you think you’ve seen the sun
but you ain’t seen it shine………”
