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.

I will be very honest: we read brilliant reviews. We went almost 3 km to get there and it was a very good pizza! Despite the fact that main place was full, despite the very long waiting time we have left satisfied.

No complaints from us - excellent ravioli, a great aperol spritzer and a caprese salad with good quality buffalo mozzarella in it. Friendly waiter who was very accommodating of our somewhat lively toddler (who enjoyed his very buttery omelette!) The only shame is that we'd heard they do good Pizzas here, but they don't fire up the wood oven until... More

La Perla serve up authentic Italian pizzas with tasty fresh ingredients for toppings. The service is friendly, there are some nice red wines to choose from, and the pizza's are great.

Love La Perla, I make a note to go visit when I am in Amsterdam for work. The pizza base is delicious and the toppings fresh. The tiramisu is an amazing finish to a wonderful meal. The service is a hit and miss depending on how busy the restaurant is, but generally is ok. Try to book in advance as... More

As our flight was cancelled, we got 6 hours of waiting at Schipol and decided to go to Amsterdam to et rather than at the airport. It turned out to be a good decision. Both the restaurant, the coffee and not least the pizza was fabulous. Thanks!

Excellent and unusual pizzas, cooked in an authentic wood oven and served in a buzzing busy atmosphere. A little confusing to start with, as the restaurant is on both sides of the same street.

This place is fine; pizza is good but nothing exceptional. It can be difficult to get a table and the service is hit or miss. This place is no better or worse than most other pizza places in Amsterdam. If you're nearby, not a bad option but I wouldn't make a special trip.

Not easy to find proper Italian pizza in Amsterdam: La Perla is one of the few italian restaurants where the quality of food reminded me of home. Great atmosphere (not a "stereotypic" italian restaurant), the staff is kind and the service very good. Most importantly, pizza is properly made with quality ingredients.

La Perla sets the standards high and it delivers straight to them: the pizza is amazing, very Italian - a thin, light crust is covered with great-quality ingredients, not overloaded, not cheated on with tinned cheap tomato sauce. Great great quality, and even better taste. Even the Quattro Formaggi is not dripping with fat and clogging your arteries just from... More
