Description: In the heart of the Amsterdam neighborhood known as 'De Jordaan', there is a street popularly known as 'Little Italy'. This street owes its nickname to the relatively large amount of high standard Italian restaurants in the area. Only one of these makes pizzas: La Perla.We've built a large wood fueled brick oven, which is essential to baking a great pizza. You can take away our pizzas, or - when in the Jordaan, do as the Jordanezen do - eat in the pizzeria, have an espresso or a dessert and enjoy the lively in- and outdoor scene.

We visited at lunch and none of us had pizza; all opted for baguettes. They were well filled with lovely quality ingredients. My friends opted for aperol spritz and were given a mighty glass full. Could not fault.

After a busy day of sight seeing we googled pizza in Amsterdam and found this gem. Well worth the visit, great pizza and a delightful staff. Would visit again if in Amsterdam.

Sat in the corner of the shop where they cook the pizzas. My wife who doesn't like pizza said 'wow this is amazing'! The staff were super friendly, even sharpened a pencil for us!!

Holy YUMMM!!!!! This place is tiny and reservations are a must for a Saturday night. If you are craving pizza while in Amsterdam, this is the place to go. The service is very good and the food is delicious. The pizza menu is a bit limited. I believe there are no more than 12 pizzas, but they are delicious. We... More

Small pizzeria located in the heart of the Jordaan area but what a great taste. You can either order and eat as takeaway or sit at the restaurant in the corner and eat there. Thin crusty pizza with lots of buffalo/muzarella cheese and other toppings cooked in a big wooden oven.

It's not difficult to throw together a good pizza - which you can see when you watch the prep here but they are generous with ingredients, a crispy thin base and minimal sauce prevent the mistakes seen at the chain pizza options. Can recommend both the four cheese and the prosciutto but with an average of €13 each which only... More

I had here the best pizzas I've ever tried outside Italy. They also serve good beer, nice tiramisu and the atmosphere is very nice.
