I was expecting so much of Venice in term of food and was so disappointed: cheap restaurants for tourists with very low quality products unless you are ready to spend a lot of money.... Since we were there for few days only I went through a lot of reviews to try to find a decent place for a decent price... More

La Perla was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. We are glad we found it. Very good pizza, good service, pleasant outdoor or indoor seating, and very reasonable prices. They also serve the best cappucino we had in Venice.

Only a short walk from our hotel but ignored until today. What a mistake - quite simply some of the best pizzas my wife and I have ever had. The locals populating the place (including six gondoliers) should give the game away. Very friendly service, perhaps a little slow to get started, but no worries after. 10% service charge is... More

This place was only a stones throw from our hotel and frequented more by locals than tourists but was first class. The service was first class and the choices could not be faulted. The food was served piping hot and was excellent.

I've never seen so many pizza choices before. Pizza was excellent but the service was less than stellar. Took thirty minutes to get our drinks when everyone else had theirs even though they arrived after us.

We found this place as it was seconds away from our hotel. Quite simply it was the best pizza I have EVER had. My mum and I made a rule while in Venice not to eat at the same place more than once but this place was so amazing we went back!! Granted we didn't see another tourist in there... More

This is a true "pizza place." It looks and feels like what we Americans want in a pizza place. Casual, inexpensive, great pizza, and a friendly owner (who has on the wall fabulous photo-bombish photos of himself with famous figures in a wax museum). We had finished a long day in prosecco country and were looking for something relatively quick... More

90% of you tourists will dismiss this cheap looking joint and eat at some fancy schmancy tourist-packed restaurant nearby, such as Casa Mia, Da Alberto, or Santa Marina. Yes, they had menus in English, but we were only the tourists at La Perla, the 4-5 other tables were all speaking Italian, and there was a constant flow of local Venetians... More

Visited La Perla twice during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. Fabulous choice of pizzas at a great price and we enjoyed looking at the film posters and photographs on the walls. One other huge compliment for them - I was stupid enough to leave my handbag on the floor at the end of our first visit and... More
