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.

A fantastic culinary experience

We capped off a 5 day visit to Rome with a meal at La Pergola. I booked the table 6 months in advance and had to reconfirm several times, but the booking went well and was very fluent. Upon entering we did have some choice stress when they asked us what kind of bread, salt(!), and water (menu!) we... read more

It was just amazing. 5 course dinner. If you want to call it 'taste' of the food then this was beyond 'taste'. I call it close to paradise. Had veal as main course. Amazing. I used a knife, but it was so incredibly soft - just amazing. The vine list was great. All what you want and know about Italian... More

The restaurant has a spectacular terrace with a stuning view of Rome. You can have dinner and be surprised to have movie stars at your side. However, the tasting menu is unremarkable with some dishes I would classify as simple and flavourless. I expected more for an expensive 3 Michelin star restaurant.

A perfectly executed michelin 3 stars. If you are looking for a great Michelin 3 stars experience, this is the place. Not a single dish can be faulted. Attentive staff. Panaromic view of Rome.

We have eaten here before and always had memorable meals here. This year was no exception. Great table under the Pergola, ordered a la carte this time and there was something for everyone (and my daughters are 12 and 13), my kids particularly enjoyed trying exotic mineral waters from around the world, or at least looking at most of them...

Our last night in Italy we wanted to do it up right so made a reservation for the Michelin 3 star at the Waldorf Astoria. We were not disappointed and cannot rave enough about this restaurant and its service. We were a little overwhelmed at first because you had menus for water, salt, olive oils and two very large "books"... More

La Pergola staff and the views of Rome were what made the meal special. The food was good but did not match the service or ambience.

I was taken to Rome as a late Christmas present and this was my third visit. I am always blown away with the city but this meal went far beyond my expectations, and food wise I am hard to please! A must see for a foodie.

When you go to a three Michelin star you expect creativity, innovation, surprise, in addition to quality. We did not have that. Nothing was truly surprising, nothing left you with the unknown... How dos they make that? Other than that.p, the service was exquisite, attentive and excellent. The decor was inviting and luxurious, nearly kitsch. Prices were OK for a... More
