Michael's Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: This authentic Neapolitan pizza joint is located at The River in Rancho Mirage and has a modern feel with seating at the exhibition kitchen, a communal table and a smattering of banquettes. The pizza oven, imported from Italy, is the main attraction and visible from nearly every seat, as it produces pie after pie with slightly charred crusts and toppings that include hand-sliced prosciutto, house-made mozzarella, fresh mushrooms and more. A selection of skillet dishes, such as the generously sized lasagna, can also be found. On tap is a selection of beer and wine --- yes, wine --- which is said to keep the notes more pure with the absence of air. Desserts include Italian-style donuts, gelato and tiramisu. While the pizza menu remains consistent all year, many of the appetizers are seasonal. Stop in when squash blossoms are in bloom, as these gems are deep-fried and served with honey.
