Simply "Authentic" Italian


To experience authentic Italian cuisine without having to travel to Italy, make your way to La Perla Di Pompano!

 La Perla Di Pompano opened its doors in November of 2018.

Lino Canzio and Manuela Maffezzoli started the restaurant, and under their direction, La Perla has proved to be an outstanding Italian Restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine that embraces all regions of Italy, as Lino is from the south and Manuela from northern Italy.

Both Manuela and Lino graduated from an esteemed catering college (a culinary institute) in Italy, and come from a background of managing fine dining establishments throughout Europe, as well as a 5 star Italian Restaurant in Michigan.

Manuela and her team combine their exceptional skills with the freshest local produce to create a variety of visually appealing, mouthwatering dishes that truly provide an Italian culinary experience.

From your first step through the door, the fabulous aromas emerging from the kitchen will make you realize that you have just discovered Pompano’s best kept secret. Portions are ample and reasonably priced.

La Perla Di Pompano also offers an extensive wine list, featuring Italian wines for the most discerning tastes.

Prior to launching La Perla, Lino and Manuela owned and operated Il Posto Ristorante, in Hollywood, Florida.  After five years of very satisfied customers and new friends, Manuela and Lino decided to continue their journey in Pompano Beach.

Reservations are recommended.
