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.

An extraordinary venue overlooking the city of Rome, gracious and funny wait staff and a pasta dish so good we had to have it again instead of dessert. This restaurant is a highlight on my travels around the world. Please ensure you order the Fogatelli La Pergola pasta...best dish I have ever tasted. A water menu anyone? Salts from Peru... More

We had the 9 course tasting menu. Most of it was excellent. My wife's squid in the seafood consommé was slightly over-cooked. The menu disproportionately consisted of desserts. There was an incredible amount of dessert on there. There were no less than 9 different parts to the dessert. I would most certainly welcome more cod or red mullet than this... More

It would have been a perfect dinner, but everything was brought terribly down but a cheat they made to us with the bill. As soon as we have been seated, a very kind waiter offered to us a glass of champagne to “kill time” while we were waiting for our food. We thanked him gratefully, but were not aware that... More

La Pergola certainly deserves its three Michelin stars and Wine Spectator Grand Award recognitions. First off, the place has an outstanding view of St. Peters and central Rome from the top of the restaurant. Food was everything we expected. We had the Chef Heinz 20th anniversary tasting menu with the wine pairing. Dishes were inventive with over the top taste... More

This highly rated restaurant is truly top notch. Every detail, from the impeccable, delicious food to the service, to the incredible hill-top view of Rome is amazing. Each dish was a work of art, both in terms of presentation and taste. If you enjoy fabulous food and/or are celebrating something special, this is a treat.

I have to ask whether a 3 Michelin star restaurant and Heinz Beck, the celebrated chef who has been in charge of La Pergola for 20 years, really requires my review?! But here it is nevertheless ... I have been dying to visit this restaurant for a long time and, as it happened, our Rome hotel was able to secure... More

Local people seem to think this is the place to go. Food was nice, but small portions and while one or two of the dishes on the tasting menu tasted amazing it was only what I expected when paying over 200 euros for my meal. Moat of our waiters were great particularly the hostess who met us on arrival. Décor... More

This is, without doubt, the finest dining experience I have ever had. The Ledbury has been my no.1 up to this point but there's a new champion! Sitting outside on the Terrace, overlooking the city and St Peter's Basilica is wonderous. The Fagotelli La Pergola is a must. Ravioli, stuffed with Bacon egg and cream-sublime. Also Zucchini flower, deep fried,... More

Rome's only 3 Michelin Star restaurant is on the top floor of the Cavalieri Hotel which is a large modern hotel up in the hills above Rome. First impressions of the hotel are of its size, and whilst the hotel foyer is modern with outside pool and gardens, the the decor in the restaurant on the top floor feels dated... More

Can't say enough good things about the dining experience at La Pergola. My wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary with an amazing, leisurely dinner in what has to be one of the top two or three restaurants in all of Rome. We enjoyed a six course meal with a view of Rome to die for. Everything about our evening... More
