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.

More then a decade ago, among all those pizzerie that added oregano on all the pizze (Yam-yam style), I considered La perla to be one of the best in town. I had a margherita and bummer, bummer, the dough was too unsalted with flashes of sweetness. Perhaps they omit the salt (nowadays it is a trend back in the US) or are they using Italian flour made in Romania. Perhaps there was too much tomato sauce as well. BTW, in the web menu, It is ¨Le speciali¨ and not ¨Le speciale¨.

We were strolling along when we came across this lovely place with a wood burning oven. We knew the pizza was gonna be good, and were right! Would recommend to sit outside and just enjoy the bikes and people strolling along!

Great pizza, baked on what seemed like a firewood oven. Ingredients were definitely fresh.

Good variety of Dutch and Belgium beers as well.

Service was very food. Prices were fair given that we are in Amsterdam.

Was there for lunch and overheard that they were fully booked for dinner that day so I recommend booking in advance.

Definitely would recommend it.

We came across this place by accident but had the most delicious pizzas. Lots of choice, including pasta, salads, baguette and soups. We had great service, however the only down side was that we couldn't have tap water and had to pay. But overall the pizza was one of the best I've ever had so would highly recommend.
