Friends took us here and we quickly learned why this is their favorite restaurant. The pizza is excellent with some unique blending of flavors yet maintaining an authentic Italian taste. All pizzas are cooked across the street in a wood fired brick oven - then delivered piping hot to your table. The staff was very attentive and ensured our meal... More

I booked a table for me and 11 of my friends based on a recommendation of a travel website about Amsterdam. It was a tad difficult to find as it's located in a very small side street just outside the Red Light District. The staff were very accomodating of our large group and always made sure that we had drinks... More

It was a rainy Amsterdam evening and we walked into La perla soaked. Thankfully the nice wine and pizza made it all worthwhile. Great staff and romantic setting. The pizza was nice and thin with great ingredients. Would recommend a visit for sure

One of the best pizzas I have tasted outside of Italy! A small yet understandably busy restaurant. With food tasting that good of course it is busy! I would advise anyone to ring up and book first to be sure you get a place but even if you don't the staff do their best to make sure they find you... More

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
