No doubt about it: this modest Jordaan set-up serves the best pizzas in Amsterdam.

La Perla is basically a takeaway, with very rudimentary eat-in options. But if your tummy is rumbling for a fabulous pizza, don't let that put you off coming.

Food and drink

All ingredients are imported from Italy, including top-quality mozzarella from Naples. The pizzas are cooked just as they should be, in a wood-fuelled, brick oven, and are delicious, with a crispy, thin base. As well as classic options, you can have your pizza topped with roasted pig, organic goat's cheese, or Nduja, a spicy Calabrian salami. You can wash down your choice with Italian wines, beers or sparkling mineral water.

Ambience

If you want to eat in, there are stools in the picture windows, a communal table in a side room (next to a pile of chopped wood for the pizza oven), and a couple of benches outside.

Service

Friendly. 

Location

On the corner of a lovely Jordaan back street that is packed with other inviting cafés and restaurants.

Price advice

A margherita pizza costs 8.50 euros. More elaborate ones, such as with goat's cheese or roasted pig, cost over 13 euros (so are not cheap).
