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 went last Sunday to celebrate a birthday in the afternoon around 3 so was really quiet, we were so happy and exited to try the pizza, we went there with a enthusiastic mood. Because we both being working in hospitality for a while, and when we go to a restaurant we try to make everything easier for the service... More

This place was a chance find. As others have said the pizza here is fantastic. Freshly made with good quality ingredients. They also have a cost restaurant across the street. We couldn't squeeze in there, but the pizza place has a sit in area which was equally nice. Would eat here again!

Shame service is so poor- has potential to be best pizza in AMS, great location and cosy ambience.. However, the rude and slow service stops it from being the top. Staff sit around and chit chat when customers wait to place orders and bills. Also, could use a side green salad on their menu as you are forced to order... More

Came here for lunch and shared a pizza, very nice menu and good pizza which is made in a traditional oven over the road. Slightly expensive for what you get and service could be better with more attentive staff but it's a good place if you want a quick bite to eat within the Jordaan area.

My husband and I have eaten at La Perla twice on this trip to Amsterdam. This is something we rarely do as we like to try different places so never go twice. The pizzas are cooked in a proper wood burning clay oven (try the porchetta pizza). The sandwiches served at lunch are also excellent. We also had the caprese... More

Heavenly Pizza hub perfect for a couple or family/friends. The insanely tasty pizzas are handmade across the road (which also doubles up as a take away if you can't get a table) and cooked in front of your eyes on the stone oven. Great staff but as they're all freshly made the pizzas can take a little while but soak... More

Nice place and great sandwiches. A bit disappointed about the coffee and service, but worth going here for a nice brunch/lunch or dinner.

We ordered pizza in the pizzeria across the street and were offered seating and drinks on the other side. Worked for us. Pizza delivered and drinks served. Excellent selection and prep of pizza.
