After having stalked the restaurant's booking page for a few days, I finally stumbled across a table at the very first seating one evening during our stay. La Perla is found on two locations on the island, and is probably one of the most hyped restaurants on Mallorca - and for a good reason. We got a table at the location in Portals Hills, just a few minutes away from the other La Perla in central Palma.
Stepping into the restaurant is a treat for the eyes, everything is very edgy and elegant at the very same time. And I was so excited to eat proper Italian food again. Even though we were in Spain and had all of that Mallorcan and Spanish food at an arm's length - I am simply one of those people who can never say no to Italian food.
The food: We started off with a burrata to share, each took a creamy pasta with salsiccia as our main and shared a mouth watering tiramisu for dessert. Truth be told? I haven't eaten pasta like that since last time I was in Italy, it was magic. We were so pleased after that meal, but also extremely full. So full, in fact, that we got on the bus back to the city, and got off a few stops too early, just so we could walk down our food before we got back to our hotel... Was it worth it, though? 100%!
Oh, and the reason to why I don't have any pictures of the food? We devoured and enjoyed our food too much to even think about something as trivial as taking photos of it. Everything was very reasonably priced, great service and amazing interiors. If I ever return to the island again (I hope I will!) I want to go here again, and again, and again.
