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.

Best meal experience ever

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. Or the range of salts for the bread - yes. Or the two volume wine menu - yes. We both chose the tasting menu and went for the... read more

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

We came to think of this place as our home town restaurant. They were very pleasant and were fun even when I struggled with my limited Italian. To Go orders were funny to communicate. The best lazagna and their ravioli wasn't bad either.

La Pergola in Rome's Cavalieri hotel is a very fancy place but stodgy, way too expensive, and not worth the long trip to get there. It does all the things to be a top restaurant, but the experience is that of a tried and true "special night out" establishment. This restaurant could have been in any expensive hotel in the...

If you pass by Rome or are there on a short break , do yourself a favour and try La pergola restaurant at the Rome Cavalieri, it's the most amazing perfect service and food I have ever tried, the chef there his an icon, and the 3 Michelin stars rating are more than justified and well deserved.

What a wonderful location and quality to experience on a special occasion. The views over Rome are breathtaking! The seating, service and ambience were just perfect. We ordered Fillet Steaks for mains and these were outstanding. They even prepared a little chocolate cake as a special treat.

Our hotel recommend this restaurant as they said it was the best restaurant in Rome. We were seated at a table by the window with a wonderful view of Rome at night - beautifull! Dinner was delicious and the ambience whilst formal wasn't stuffy. It's expensive (and then some!) but worth it - we'd never had a water menu before... More

Absolutely amazing food, service, view. Every serving from the bread to the coffee has a magical touch. Different types of bread are served w/extra virgin olive oil from Umbria plus a Norwegian salt mix and white salt from Sicily to dip yr bread in. Each appetizer, first and main course is prepared matching different sauces and spices resulting in new... More

Wow, This was a special treat for us for our anniversary and was well worth the visit.

Jackets for men, menus without prices for women! Whats that all about! All a tad old fashioned in a modern Michelin starred restaurant i'd say? My idea of relaxing into a fine gourmet meal is to have no jacket, but yet I had to have one. And why women have to get separate menus without prices is either patronising or... More
