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.

This restaurant is perfect. The restaurant itself is beautiful, the food is seriously amazing, and the wait staff was great.

I am so sorry.. I hate to complain or waste my time, but i have decided to write a review because if La Pergola is a 3 Michelin star restaurant then i need a reality check with the world.

What an evening/night! It was a firework of wonderful dishes and great wines ! Had their 9 course degustation menu plus the delicious amuse bouches coupled with 10 excellent wines. It was a 5 hours constant bombardment of our senses. The sommelier really knew how to match each dish with top wines. One of our best evenings ever - will... More

I booked a meal here to celebrate my girlfriends birthday and it was perfect in every way. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing and each and every course was fantastic. I must say, this is the first restaurant I have ever eaten in which has a 'water menu' - something for the teetotallers! The tasting menu was genuinely... More

everything I read about this place is true. The views really are a fantastic, the service is first class and the food is very good. You could not fault the beef or the lamb main courses, both were perfect. Having a choice of four sea salts, each coming with it's own life story, is perhaps a little over the top.... More

Went to La Pergola for dinner with my boyfriend during our holiday in Rome in December. As we love visiting different Michelin starred restaurants around the world when traveling, of course Rome wouldn't be an exception. We had a great evening at La Pergola, starting out with a glass of Champagne and enjoying the stunning views of Rome. We enjoyed... More

We were staying at the hotel and had booked the restaurant well in advance. The overall experience was stunning from start to finish. Whether it was the water menu - yes.

I honestly can't tell the difference between a 1, 2 or 3 star Michelin restaurant after this. It was my first experience in a 3 star and while it was really fantastic i suppose I had expected to be totally blown away. I think if I had not had that expectation I would have reveled in the super food and... More
