My wife and I stopped here while wandering around the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. Service was fast and curteous. The pizza is cooked in a wood fired brick oven and was served up hot and delicious in just a few minutes. Best pizza I've had outside of Italy! Their wine selections are Italian as well. We had Rosso di Montalcino... More

I went there for a quick lunch with my girlfriend. The restaurant is a bit small, but it's nice. The pizzas were fantastic, the stracchino's one was very tasty and the one with the "porchetta di Ariccia" on top makes me feel as I was at home in Italy! The beer was great as well! Staff was very kind and... More

This street is one of the best and most charming restaurant rows in Amsterdam. More laid back and informal than Spui. We could have spent our whole trip eating at a different restaurant every night. This restaurant has its pizza oven in the shop across the street. We ate on stools in the oven restaurant. Fun to watch them make... More

La Perla's pizza was, without a doubt, some of the most delicious pizza I've had. Clearly others felt the same way as the restaurant was packed to the brim! Although we didn't have a reservation, the very cordial hostess was kind enough to seat us almost immediately (we had some cozy seats the bar). The food was excellent, our bartender/waiter... More

The pizzas here range between 10 & 14 Euros and they all taste excellent! The menu is mainly limited to Pizza, but you will struggle to find a better pizza anywhere else. Highly recommend a visit.

Pizza was really delicious. Nice combinations of toppings. We got one pizza margarita which I thought was well done, one with roast porchetta and one with artichokes, olives and capers. They were all great. My only complaint is that they would not give us tap water for the kids (after we ordered sparkling water for the adults). Not a huge... More

My husband and I went here and got some great pizza! We didn't have a reservation and they weren't able to get us a table so we went across the street to their "to-go" section where they actually cook the pizzas and got our pizzas to go and just ate along the canal.

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.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
