Support Miceli's Restaurant Due To Covid

Nearly 72 years ago in 1949, my grandfather, Carmen Miceli, opened the doors to the first Miceli’s Restaurant in the heart of old Hollywood. He probably didn't think then that one day it would be known as ‘The Oldest Italian Restaurant in Hollywood’, but I know he'd be proud that over seven decades and three generations, our family owned and operated restaurant has survived to be exactly that. But now, we need your help to keep this true. 

Our two locations have proudly and happily served Los Angeles with good food and good songs from our talented performing waiters and waitresses. And we have also made it a priority to give back and involve the restaurant with our greater LA community. This includes supporting our first responders at the LAFD, PD and CHP and creating local partnerships like our ones with the Toluca Lake and East Valley Youth Baseball Leagues, Carpenter Elementary School, Blessed Sacrament and St. Charles Church among many other groups that we have donated food and support to over the years. It has been our honor to be a place for families to celebrate birthdays, first dates, engagements, anniversaries and all of life’s other memorable celebrations. Unfortunately, now we need your help to keep those memories alive, and to continue to be a place to create new ones in the future.

As the COVID pandemic has decimated the restaurant industry, and in particular small businesses like ours, Miceli’s is struggling to keep their doors open every single day. We have done everything we can to respect the state and county guidelines, and like many other establishments, will not be able to stay open long-term without help right now. We know times are tough for everyone, this pandemic has touched all of us and no one is immune to the painful realities that this disease has brought to our community. We humbly ask in our time of need, if you are able, that you would consider supporting us in our quest to continue to serve that community, and help us keep alive those wonderful traditions and times that hopefully you and your loved ones have enjoyed within our walls (or, lately, on our sidewalks).

All funds raised will be used to pay fixed operating costs including utilities and other monthly overhead in order to keep the restaurant open. Our goal is to get us through the lockdown to a point where we can safely open again and provide jobs for our 120 or so employees that are also struggling through this tough time.

If you don't feel comfortable donating here, please consider ordering from Miceli's for your next meal or even purchasing a gift card. Everything helps!  

Thank you so much for your support.
