Neighborhood: Jordaan
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.

“Great pizza and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

This is a cosy and small pizzeria in the middle of Jordan. The Pizza is awesome but be ready to wait as is always full. Grap a chair in the big table of the back and wait till is ready. Great service and value for your money

“Little Italy in Jordaan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We walked past this Italian restaurant several times while traveling to dinner on other nights and it was always busy. Their specialty is woodfired pizza so if you don't like pizza, don't bother. We were phoneless, so we came at 6:00 and we were lucky to get a table. The owner/chef brings in buffalo mozarella twice weekly directly from Italy and most of the pizzas have this as part of the cheese. I had the proscuitto and arugula pizzawhich was delicious. The tiramisu dessert was also quite good. For a good meal that is reasonably priced in the heart of the Jordaan, don't overlook La Perla

“Normal Pizza:Overrated and High Price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

From an italian perspective, the pizza is a normal one you can eat everywhere in Italy.Nice atmosphere,good but not outstanding pizza. I think the price are high compared with what they offer: if you pay 12 eur a margherita, you should expect ,at least, mozzarella di bufala as cheese! The topping was too poor in both pizza we chose.
