We dined at La Perla on a Friday evening and were impressed with the food and the friendly service. La Perla seems to have two buildings across from each other: one exclusively for take-away and the other being the sit-down restaurant. Being a Friday, in May, there were certainly plenty of people about, and most appeared to be locals. This... More

Everything was fine. We all finished our pizzas which were good. On the Prosciutto San Daniele there was a lot of ham and too little ruccola.

Came here on my back from church toward the Jordaan area. I ordered the margarita pizza, pretty simply but was delicious. Service was good and fast, especially considering they make all their pizzas in a traditional wood oven. Great corner cafe atmosphere, nice music, it was great! Would come again and would recommend.

Make a reservation. This is the best pizza in the city. Everyone knows it and the locals book! The staff are super friendly and will do anything they can to accommodate you but book or expect to wait (it's worth it) We are in the restaurant part, across the road the take away part which never stops having people!

We came for dinner, and things began well with immediate service and wine delivery. After we made our dinner order.... crickets. The promised water was not delivered and tables that had been seated 20 and 30 minutes after us received their food but we finished our bottle of wine and still no water and no food and no acknowledgement from...

After a long day of sightseeing and waking over 10 miles, we wanted something quick and easy for dinner. We picked up a couple of pizzas at La Perla and took them back to our hotel. The pizzas had a thin crust, fresh ingredients and were delicious. They were exactly what we were looking for. It was also quick which... More

Good enough for Amsterdam but not fantastic.. Service is fine and kind. Location is centric. Strong salami pizza was too spicy for me.

Found out about this place thanks to Rick Steve's and I am so glad we ate lunch here. Only a 5 minute walk from Anne Franks house.

Went here for lunch twice in July 2016. Couldn't get in for dinner always very crowded. All I can say is AWESOME pizza, some of the best I ever had including Italy. Highly recommended to stop in for a pie either lunch or dinner. Salads are good too! Lunch time didn't seem especially busy and was able to get a... 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

Neighbourhood 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.
