The restaurant closed October 2013. They offered some of the best Italian dinning and wine menus in the city. They were a fixture for many many years. I enjoyed a few meals there and I guess the times and tastes are changing.

The Start of October was the end of La Perla. I really enjoyed this Dartmouth restaurant and over the years went lots of times. Chef James is now at the Colby Wine Bar. Sad news.

I actually feel bad that I didn't like the food since everyone else was raving! I sent my meal back, there was so much spice I couldn't eat it, the waitress said that she thought maybe she should have warned me that the dish was spicy when I ordered it. Do ya think! The second meal they brought did not... More

This used to be one of my favorite special occasion restaurants! I hadn't gone here for a number of years as I moved out of town and thought I would give myself a treat. I don't know where all the good reviews are coming from; maybe these people don't eat out anywhere else? the place was, well, dirty. Dinner cost... More

Very quiet and relaxing. Food was superb! A bit pricey, but the quietness and location is worth the price. The food was very fresh and flavorful. The seafood was outstanding. We entered the establishment through the back door, which is hidden and off the street. My husband and I enjoyed a very quiet meal that was delicious and satisfying. The... More

Number 1 Italian food in Atlantic Canada. The owner, well she doesn't speak much, but the food is excellent. The wine selection is great.

That pretty much sums it up. Nice brickwork inside, good size deck overlooking the harbour, excellent establishment. Highly recommend.
