We stopped by about 10 min. before they stopped cooking on Friday night. The service was fast and the 4 cheese pizza and house wine were excellent! We would definitely go back.

We love La Perla. This is some of the best pizza I have ever had! We eat here regularly, whether to take away or dine in. It is a very popular place at the weekends so if you are looking to eat in, I recommended booking a table at least 24 hours in advance.

We popped in here during a sudden downpour. What good luck! The pizza was one of the best I have ever had (loved the crust!), drinks were terrific and service was warm and friendly.

We had the best service and pizzas in Amsterdam. It is in a friendly area of the city and we sat outside to see people go by.

This is a great little pizza place. We came on the weekend and it was very busy, had to wait 30+ mins for our pizza. We ended up getting it to go because there was no place to sit in or outside of the restaurant.

I had read good reviews so decided to take a look at La Perla on my first night in the city. Walking past about 6pm I was immediately drawn to the restaurant by the cool look of the place and how tasty the pizzas seemed. We booked a table for later and luckily we did as it was full at... More

The staff were nice and helped me get my pizza quicker with the long lines. But I am from NY and am accustomed to Motorino and Keste and have had Naples pizza. While this place can't compare in terms of the crust, the cheese was excellent and the pizza was solid if you are in Amsterdam looking for pizza this... More

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.
