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.

Firstly be aware that pizza isn't available until 5pm! We actually came here to try out the pizzas that are so fondly reviewed on TripAdvisor... but at 2pm this was not to be. Slightly deflated and altogether starving, we sat down anyway to the lunch time menu. Beginning with the excellent bread (with olive oil and vinegar condiments), and including... More

I am italian and I am always a bit dubious about eating pizza in restaurants especially away from Italy. La perla was just superb. We ordered one pizza and then we couldn't avoid to get a second one. Real tasty food and nice spot to enjoy a pizza in Amsterdam

i certainly didn't expect anything fancy, but i did at least expect the pizza to be good - it wasn't; it was mis-shapen, and burnt in places primarily due to a lack of topping ..... it even lacked basic flavour and seasoning and above all, was tough! no chilli oil or similar on the table salad forgotten until the pizza...

The service was really bad. They didnt pay attention and there was no soap in the toilet (which was used by the emplyees also). When I told them, they said "we dont know how to refill it", and when we asked how spicy the pizza was she said "There is not really a national standard for this. Its Your preference....."... More

La Perla is a very popular restaurant with the local residents so I would advise making a reservation before visiting. The reason they are so popular is the great food and wonderful atmosphere. There is not a huge selection to choose from on La Perla's menu, but the quality of the food is wonderful and the prices are also very... More

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
