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.

La Pergola must hold the best location in Rome as it is located on top of one of the highest hills (or is it a small mountain) in Rome in the delightful Waldorf hotel. The restaurant and terrace on the top floor has phenomenal views over Rome especially when the sun goes down and the lights twinkle to create spectacular... More

My Husband and I had a wonderful meal here. We ordered the tasting menu and were delighted with the food. Every course was presented beautifully and the flavour combinations were superb. There were many wonderul surprises throughout the meal (which I will leave for you to experience). We have been lucky enough to eat at many 2 and 3 starred... More

Worth every Michelin star. One of the best restaurants in Rome and the country. Just don't bring the kiddies; get a baby sitter.

We booked a table one month before and it was already almost fully booked. This restaurant offers the best and most beloved fine dining anywhere. Heinz Beck's attention to details and exquisite taste for food is exceptional. It is not only a question of appearance or mere presentation. Every dish of our tasting menu was an experience so that something... More

I have never applauded a dish arriving at my table before. Heinz Beck is a magician! This was the best meal of my life, it wasn't a meal, it was a life experience. We celebrated our anniversary and Heinz Beck was celebrating 20 years at La Pergola I won't go into each dish but we had the Limited Edition 20th... More

I took my wife to La Pergola for her birthday, we had visited previously two years ago and I was keen to compare the two experiences. This time we had the opportunity to try the 20th year anniversary menu which is time limited and will only be available to the first 999 visitors (I think we were about 569 or... More

I am writing this review as someone who really enjoys fine dining, but does not frequently do it. My friends and I went to this restaurant to celebrate our milestone birthdays (which I will not mention the numbers of haha) and had an incredible evening. I want to stress that you will spend a decent amount of money at this... More
