2006: the beginning of a dream

The Birth of Michele's Pizzeria

Da Michele inizi Suspended between the enveloping scent of tomato and basil, and the welcoming atmosphere of furnishings with attention to the smallest details, December 14, 2006 marks an epic moment for Via San Donà. It’s the day Michele opened the doors of his first pizzeria, giving life to an unprecedented culinary experience.

An Enchanted Atmosphere

Crossing the threshold, you find yourself immersed in a world made of warm colors and a painting that is a vibrant homage to his beloved Sicily. Every corner tells a story, every detail exudes the love and passion that Michele poured into this magical place. It’s more than a pizzeria, it’s a warm embrace, a dive into the heart of an ancient and authentic tradition.

Pizzeria Da Michele and its Maxi Pizzas

Michele broke the mold in Mestre by introducing pizzas in the Maxi format, to be shared in all their richness. Each bite of these extraordinary creations brings with it the essence of beaten pasta and crunchy dough, an unforgettable sensory experience. His mission, his passion, is to offer the people of Mestre large, rich and above all good pizzas, embellished with high quality ingredients. Fresh potatoes, fresh button mushrooms, oregano, basil – each element is carefully selected and seasoned to create intense flavors and hearty pizzas that tell stories of tradition and dedication. Each pizza is a work of art, an explosion of taste that brings with it the very essence of Michele’s passion and dedication. In this space, every bite becomes a sensorial journey, a tribute to the beauty of Italian tradition and the courage of a man who transformed a dream into reality. Michele’s pizzeria is not just a place to eat, but a culinary sanctuary where food is transformed into emotion and every customer becomes part of an extraordinary story. This is the place where Michele’s passion comes to life, offering a culinary experience that nourishes not only the body, but also the spirit.

2011

The laboratory in via Cappuccina

Laboratorio via Cappuccina

In 2011, faced with an overwhelming wave of requests for pizzas coming from loyal customers in the center of Mestre and the Piave Stazione area, Michele made a bold decision: he opened a laboratory dedicated exclusively to home deliveries in Via Cappuccina. This laboratory would become the beating heart that would distribute the love and flavor of his creations throughout the area.

A Challenge Against Adversity

However, the “Via Cappuccina” street was closed shortly after opening due to tram works, turning the area into a place notorious for crime and decay. Despite the adversities and despite the fact that the laboratory was intended only for home deliveries, loyal customers flocked to the place to enjoy the pizzas directly on site.

A Refuge of Taste and Warmth

This laboratory was not just a logistics center, but a refuge of authenticity where Michele’s passion transformed every bite into an extraordinary experience. Even amidst the challenges, his pizza continued to be a beacon of joy and goodness for the local community.

The takeaway pizzeria opens

In 2013 Michele, with determination and overwhelming passion, decided to transform the laboratory in Via Cappuccina into a take-away pizzeria open to the public. With love and care, he added 10 tables to offer customers the opportunity to enjoy pizza directly on site, served on rustic wooden cutting boards. This transformation reflected his desire to share not only his extraordinary pizza but also an authentic and welcoming experience with every guest who crossed the threshold of his pizzeria.

Michele wanted to demonstrate (and succeeds) that takeaway pizzerias were not of a lower level than those consumed at the table. Furthermore, Michele puts all the staff of his pizzerias on display to show the order, professionalism, quality and service with which the pizzas are delivered through takeaways.

All for one, one for all

Our stores in Mestre (Venice) worked tirelessly in the same way, until in 2018 the store in Via Cappuccina began to receive a growing request for seats to enjoy pizza directly on site. The ten tables were no longer able to contain all our loyal customers, we were increasingly cramped, so Michele made a courageous decision: to expand. This is how “Da Michele Pizza e Risto'” was born.

Our mission remains unchanged: to offer abundant dishes and pizzas of the highest quality in a modern, elegant and at the same time welcoming and familiar environment. We want to focus on the customer, both for those who choose to enjoy our dishes on site and for those who opt for takeaway, always guaranteeing precision and professionalism in every detail.
