Description: 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. The award is the most prestigious emblem of achievement and true quality: an award many strive for, but few obtain.

My mum kindly surprised me for my 30th during our visit to Rome. The service was second to none. We opted for the 9 course taster menu and were blown away, especially by the 'grand dessert' - grand is an understatement! Made a nice effort for my birthday too, sheer luxury!

Absolutely beautiful views of Rome. Good not great food. The most expensive restaurant we have ever been to. Well over 250 euro per person. Fantastic service. We went there for our 30th anniversary. I let them know several times in advance of our dinner yet no one acknowledged our anniversary which was disappointing.

We had dinner at la Pergola on August 8th and… what an experience! We did not stay at the Hotel and as we entered the lobby and asked for the restaurant, we were kindly escorted to the elevator from which after reaching the 9th floor we were professionally greeted and escorted to our table. As we arrived at our table,... More

If you are searching a restaurant with perfect service, high quality food and a magnificent view, you can go to La Pergola. The price is good compared with the restaurant, but of course you need to spend round 150 Euro per person, but at least once in your life, you must go.

This is the type of place where they remember you and always make you feel welcome. The food was very good as this is a local restaurant and not one of those places on a piazza that prepares substandard food for the tourists.

We spent the last night of our honeymoon at La Pergola and it was the best decision that we made! After finding the restaurant (it isn't well signposted in the hotel), we were actually a bit early for our table but enjoyed a glass of fizz on the veranda with a few delicious nibbely bits. We were shown through to... More

I think the Italian cuisine is the best in the world, and La Pergola is one of the best restaurants in Italy. So you can do the rest of the math yourself. If there is one thing to improve, it is the slightly reserved behavior of the personnel. Very professional, but there are other restaurants were I felt at home... More

That's what Michelin stars should be about. Pergola deserves the three of them. From quality of food, vine menu and service, to view and overall location you couldn't do better. Not always Michelin starred restaurants deliver on the expectations they raise, but this one did.

After trying on and off for literally the past 20 years, I finally got serious about dining at La Pergola and got my husband's secretary on the case. Three months ago she was able to book us a table for during our annual August holiday outside Rome. The view at La Pergola is unparalleled, but when we were given a... More
