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.

Stopped by La Perla while looking for a quick meal. The pizza is amazing, cooked in a wood fired oven, right before your eyes in about 6 minutes. Great crust, quality ingredients and a good price. One pizza, two cokes at less than $20. The shop where they make the pizzas doesn't serve alcohol or have tables but their restaurant... More

I had three nights in the city. We went here on the second night and it was so good we went back for the final night of our trip. I've spent months in Italy, and the pizza here was as good or better than anything I had there. Add in good staff, a great beer and wine selection and a... More

Yes, I'm a pizza lover - I live in NYC, and I like to think I know good pizza. (I also lived in Chicago some years back.) La Perla is not only delicious, but has such a great atmosphere - and a wonderful staff. But make reservations! They were completely booked both times we went. Great salads and great house... More

Small place so it gets busy, you might have to wait at the bar. They don't have loads of pizzas to choose from, but what they do, they do well. Would definitely recommend.

Enjoyed the pizza. Very cute setting and kitten! Chocolate cake was pretty good. Stuff was friendly and tried hard to make room for us in the busy restaurant.

After a rainy couple of days in Amsterdam and a few fancy dinners, we wanted to do something simple that we could pick up and eat at the flat. We ordered 3 large pizzas and they were all delicious. The Margherita pizza was simple and delicious and as you would expect it. We also got the salame crudo piccante artigianale... More

Staff seems to be absent most of the time and took ages to notice us and respond once there even though there only one other party there. Pizza was great though

We were staying in the Jordaan area and stumbled upon La Perla. We couldn't get a table in the restaurant - you probably need to book if you want to be sure to get a table. We went across to the Takeaway and the staff there were very friendly and we sat in and had our wood fired pizzas. The... More

La Perla is a great place to have a pizza and some drinks in one of the nicer area's of Amsterdam that we found. The pizza's are a good amount for one person, cooked to perfection. Thin crust with excellent toppings. Prices were very reasonable as well.
