Take the ferry across the water to Dartmouth for a memorable experience in fine dining. In one of the city's oldest buildings, La Perla serves it up Northern Italian style with delicious soups, antipasti and pasta followed by beautifully presented main courses of veal, beef, chicken, lamb and seafood. The food is in competition with the view from the restaurant; it's difficult to say which is more exciting, the Halifax skyline by candle light or the trout with bourbon butter sauce.
Typically, the meals we have had at LaPerla have been delicious with spectacular service; however, a recent visit (Nov9/07) was a complete disappointment. The mussels were undercooked, a real shame as typically they are one of the reasons we enjoy it here so much. Our entrees were undercooked/overcooked unedible. To add insult to injury, a large party was seated next to us - they should have been next door a the tavern as clearly they assumed everyone else wanted to participate in listening to their conversation!! Without doubt every restaurant has some problems but this was a terrible disappointment and it is unlikely we will return. Our dinner ($150) would have been better spent elsewhere - perhaps Rocco's would have been a better choice.
