One of the best restaurants in Rome, if not in Italy, La Pergola is much more than just a famous menu. Its three-Michelin stars - the only Rome restaurant to be accorded such an honour - attest to the excellence of its cuisine. A wine cellar with over 53,000 bottles, a water menu with 29 choices, olive oils and vintage balsamic vinegars from the best producers in Italy, and the finest ingredients to be sourced in the Mediterranean -- all attest to the pursuit of culinary excellence. In the last decade the major Italian gastronomic guides such as L'Espresso, Gambero Rosso, Bibenda have consistently voted La Pergola the "Best Restaurant of Rome" and one of the best in Italy. Since November 2005 the Michelin Guide has honoured La Pergola with 3 stars and 5 forks, symbol of exceptional cuisine and "worth a special journey". Furthermore, the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences has awarded La Pergola with the coveted "Five Star Diamond Award!" Each year the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, renowned worldwide, bestows its coveted International STAR DIAMOND AWARD exclusively on five star establishments that are deemed to be of pinnacle quality by its esteemed Board of Trustees.

On our last night in Italy we decided to splurge a little on good food, wine and a majestic view of rome from the rooftop of La Pergola.We ordered the 9 course meal and as expected from a 3 michelin star restaurant, every dish was immaculate. The dining experience was a privilige.

Food, service and views absolutely outstanding. We had the 7 course taster menu, could never have managed the 9 course option. The views and location were breath taking. This is definitely worth every euro. Yes expensive but as expected for such outstanding food. An experience that should be done at least once by all. Perfect for romance, special occasion or...

This place was amazing. La Pergola is a rooftop restaurant that has wonderful vies of the city of Rome. It is on top of the beautiful Waldorf Astoria Rome Cavalieri Hotel on top of a hill looking over the city of Rome. We were staying at the Hotel so we ate there one night. The story; we got dressed (jacket... More

My wife and myself dined inside the restaurant, amidst its opulent, classy decor on our first night in Rome. My only regret is that we couldn't sit outside to get a better view of the Vatican, which is what seems to really distinguish a dining experience at La Pergola. You probably need to book 6 months in advance for that,... More

Most romantic setting and fabulous meal. From the specialty salts to the decadent deserts, La Pergola is first class. Not to be missed!

We had the 7-course tasting menu and wow, every dish was a talking point from the presentation to the taste to the texture. The treats before your dessert is brought over are absolutely sensational and very cleverly presented. The chef took the time to talk to the guests at the end of the dinner service. If you spot him on... More

Words do not do the La Pergola experience justice. From the minute you enter to the moment you must leave (and don't want to), everything is simply wonderful. The ambiance, the decorations, the table settings...of course the food and wine are superior and made for a memorable experience. To top it off all of the staff were wonderful!!

I could wax lyrical in my amateurish way about how delicate the pasta was, or how original some of the dishes were, but to be honest I simply couldn't do this place (or the food) justice. Breathtaking setting with a world class view, truly outstanding food, fantastic wines and refreshingly laid back and friendly staff for such a high end... More
