New in 2024:
Pizzeria Trattoria La Perla
In Venice, as elsewhere in Italy, pizza tends to be a bargain: A personal plate-size pizza is nearly always cheaper than a multicourse meal, it's filling, it's unlikely to be disappointing, and it usually arrives at your table fairly quickly--a fact that makes pizza especially attractive after a long day of sightseeing.
Venice has no shortage of pizza restaurants, but there's one that has become a family favorite with us: Pizzeria Trattoria La Perla in the sestiere of Cannaregio, just around the corner from the Campo dei SS. Apostoli near a movie theatre, a Co-op supermarket, and the Hotel Giorgione.
La Perla isn't as elegant as the nearby Trattoria Pizzeria San Alvise on the Fondamente Nuove, and the atmosphere is more spartan than that of another reliable pizzeria-restaurant that we've been visiting for years, the Taverna San Trovaso in Dorsoduro. Still, the decor is pleasant, the clientele includes more locals than tourists, the pizza is satisfying, service is efficient, and prices are reasonable by Venice standards. If you're sightseeing or shopping on the Strada Nova and you're hungry for pizza, head for the Campo dei SS. Apostoli and use the directions and map on the next page to reach the Pizzeria La Perla.
To find your way to the Pizzeria Trattoria La Perla, see the map and step-by-step directions on page 2 of this article.
