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 is perched on the roof of the Waldorf Astoria (nee Hilton) a bit outside the city, so you have a view that seems fantastical of Rome spread out before you. Sitting outside for a cocktail before dinner, you feel like king (or queen) of there world. The food almost gets to the point that it transcends food, the... More

We went with family to celebrate a few birthdays. It was a wonderful experience. We had a 9 course menu with a couple surprise additions throughout. Hard to pick a favorite course. We opted for bottles versus the wine pairing. Staff recommended some outstanding bottles and accommodated our price preference. Presentation was unique, food was delicious, staff answered all questions,... More

As a avid food lover I was looking forward to eating at Rome's only 3 Michelin star restaurant. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment. Despite booking two month in advance we got a table at the back without a view. There not even a possibility to have drinks on the balcony to enjoy the the fabulous views. It was also... More

They had a water menu and a lot of different salts for your Olive oil. It was the same this time around. I you go to a great restaurant (2-3 stared michelin) you... More

We enjoyed a stunning dinner at La Pergola during our honeymoon. We were staying on the Imperial level at Cavalieri so it was a short lift ride for us. The panaromi views of the city are fantastic and the food sublime. There are not many places where you are offered a 10 page menu for the water. Every detail was... More

Lovely setting with excellent quality food and outstanding service. This is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. Dinner was delicious. They made a special birthday cake for my father which was one of the best desserts I have ever had. Fair warning: it's very expensive. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
