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.

Yum

Best pizzas in town. Wood fired oven. You can eat in the take away area or sit in the restaurant across the road.

We were lucky to grab a place at the bar in this popular restaurant, and we were happy we did. The complimentary olives to start (asked for an received a refill as well) was a really nice touch. We shared a nice bottle of wine, one of the best pizzas we have eaten outside of Italy, and ate wonderful bread... More

This place is amazing. Me and my husband went without reservation (recommended!) and the staff promptly arranged a place for us on the counter. The service on the bar was perfect and I'm not a big fan of pizza, but theirs is fantastic!

When my husband, toddler and I stumbled upon this family friendly gem with food that looked too good to be true, we were over the moon. We know the drill when dining with kids, eat early with the littles and spare the crowd who want to linger over meals. So, at 6:00pm (I'd say quite early by any standards), we... More

I had seen that this place was well reviewed and had finished touring the Anne Frank house & museum a short distance away, so I headed over. I did not realize at first, but La Perla has two locations directly opposite of each other. One is a more formal restaurant (I did not see their menu for this space). The... More

Excellent Italian restaurant. Only about ten tables so call ahead. Food was superb! The waitstaff were attentive and professional. Very reasonable prices for Copenhagen.

We stopped by here for a quick lunch and had a baguette each. They were simple with minimal ingredients, and tasted delicious. The staff were nice and service was very quick. I'd like to go back again as it appeared they had a rather extensive and tasty pizza menu.

It was super busy and the charming waitress sorted us a place at the bar. Great beer, truly mouthwatering pizzas and a cosy environment. We were exhausted from a long bike ride and it was exactly what we needed. If you like a pizza, we couldn't recommended it enough.

Wonderful! Everyone left happy and impressed. It's small and crowded, obviously popular and for good reason. Staff was attentive. The Capresi Salad will leave a lasting impression - so fresh, so good. Really worth the visit.
