We went to La Perla two nights in a row, wanting to experience the great pizza and atmosphere of our visit 4 years ago, only to find that on both nights the place was dark with a Closed sign on the door.

We at here one evening thinking it looked a quiet place for a simple pizza. We ordered 2 calzone's and two portions of Tagliatelle. The Calzones arrived with 5 minutes, the pasta actually took longer! The meat was all gristle and when we complained we were told we should of said something earlier as we'd already eaten most of it,... More

Food is good quality. Portion size is good. Prices are comparable to and lower than other pizzerias around. Good atmosphere later in evenings. Very little English (waiters or menu).

Found this pizza and pasta place near our home. Tasty, good portion sizes, wide variety and reasonably priced. Wi-fi and aircon a bonus. Would recommend any day.

A sweet humble place with really great food and superior service, good value too the prices are quite low and the quality exceptional. My husband wanted to go back again and again for every meal, when we did go someplace else similar I said, " you are right, we should have just gone to La Perla" afterward. Still thinking about...

Wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle for a late lunch, we found this beautiful hidden gem around the corner from our hotel (Hotel Giorgione, highly recommend!). The service was helpful and efficient, and our pizzas were fantastic! And prices were quite reasonable too. Great place to stop!

This little hidden gem was an accidental find. We were looking for a place to eat away from the main streets of Venice and so we walked away from our hotel (Hotel Giorgione) and stumbled on this pizzeria. The four of us had pizza and they were all equally good. The service was good too. Nothing over the top, but... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
