Silver Lake's Michelangelo Pizzeria has lots of local fans, for its thin crust pizzas as well as its handsome staff members. But like the Backdoor Bakery down the street, Michelangelo's owners are also having trouble with their landlady, who would like to open her own eatery in the cozy spot and cash in on Silver Lake Blvd.'s theoretical riches.
Michelangelo has also run into trouble getting the new Eagle Rock location off the ground due to permitting issues, and is now faced with looking for a new space in both Silver Lake and/or Eagle Rock.
There's still a chance the landlady will relent, and Michelangelo's owners say you can help by signing a petition at the restaurant, which already has some 2,000 signatures. The petition will also be online soon at Michelangelo Pizzeria Ristorante.
