You can definitely wake me up for a pizza from La Perla! Not only am I seduced by this Italian about every 2 weeks because of how close to my house it is. It’s situated in one of my favorite streets of the Jordaan: de Tweede Tuindwarsstraat. This street is known as Little Italy because of the many Italian restaurants like Assaggi, the former Cafe De Curtis, Monte Pelmo (ice cream) and La Perla!
The pizzabakers only use genuine ‘Mozzarella di Bufala Campana D.O.P’ on the pizza, fresh delivery from the Naples area! And are made from the best ingredients imported from Italy. La Perla uses a large wood fueled brick oven to bake the pizza. My favorite is the pizza Proscuitto San Daniele with rocket and Parmigiano Reggiano, but I also love the plain pizza or the one with four cheeses.
You can sit with us..
La Perla is almost the only one in the street where you can take away delicious pizzas. You can eat them at the pizzeria or sit alongside one of the lovely canals in the sun. This side of the pizzeria is only for take away. On the other side of the street La Perla has a restaurant, where you can sit down and enjoy your pizza! Therefore I can highly recommend sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine or beer and watch city life go by..
