When you walk in the door you are greeted by the beautiful owner Anna Maria Acampora. She is sweet and accommodating and keeps the restaurant moving smoothly with so many people eager to get a table. She never forgets a face and welcomes the majority of her customers by name.
The tavern area is newly remodeled and words can’t describe how cozy it is with the rustic decorations and wood fire oven. Anna’s husband Alfonso makes the most delicious wood-fire pizza – you’ll never go back to your average pizza after you’ve had one of his amazing creations with fresh mozzarella and gourmet toppings baked to perfection in that wood-fire oven.
The formal dining room offers some of the freshest and most unique choices in the capital region and is the closest thing to real Italian food I’ve been able to find. When I say nothing is premade I mean nothing. If you order clams oreganata Alfonso will shuck the clams and stuff them fresh for your order. The extra time it might take is so worth the wait because nowhere else in this area can you find that degree of freshness, quality and most importantly - DELICIOUSNESS.
The Inn at the Gregory House is also amazing - Anna has decorated every room with a different theme and it is immaculately clean. My girlfriends and I stay for a weekend every summer and we don’t leave the Inn once the entire weekend! We simply lounge and take advantage of everything LaPearla has to offer. We chat over coffee and pastries in the morning, spend our days by the pool, and our nights at the restaurant just eating, drinking and relaxing.
If you go to the restaurant early enough you will find the owners, Anna Maria and Alfonso, sharing a meal with their staff and at the end of the night you will often see them sitting at a table with customers who have become friends. It is very refreshing to see owners who not only run an amazing business with the best food in the area -- but who also treat their employees and customers like family.
La Pearla is like a home away from home.
