We were with six, but they had a table for us. They also were very quick with delivering the food and remembered who ordered what. It was a great experience! They have like 35 different pizzas.

La Perla is the perfect pizzeria-trattoria if you're hungry, want big portions, and crave delicious food. Located near S.S. Apostoli, La Perla is off the main trek in that area of Venice. You might have to look a bit to find it, but the meal will be well worth the extra effort — I promise. I had the Parmiggiana Pizza... More

The restaurant offers very good pizza and is often visited by locals. It was loud, full of smiling people and the service was good. Reccomended.

We went to La Perla two nights in a row, wanting to experience the great pizza and atmosphere of our visit 4 years ago, only to find that on both nights the place was dark with a Closed sign on the door.

We at here one evening thinking it looked a quiet place for a simple pizza. We ordered 2 calzone's and two portions of Tagliatelle. The Calzones arrived with 5 minutes, the pasta actually took longer! The meat was all gristle and when we complained we were told we should of said something earlier as we'd already eaten most of it,... More

Food is good quality. Portion size is good. Prices are comparable to and lower than other pizzerias around. Good atmosphere later in evenings. Very little English (waiters or menu).

Found this pizza and pasta place near our home. Tasty, good portion sizes, wide variety and reasonably priced. Wi-fi and aircon a bonus. Would recommend any day.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
