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.

This is a very expensive but superb foodie adventure. This restaurant is on the top floor of the Rome Cavielieri Hotel about a 20 minute cab ride outside of the city center. Be sure to bring an appetite and don't be in a hurry. Luxuriate in the experience! The views overlooking Rome are spectacular, so have your concierge ask for... More

Don't be in a rush, and make sure you're hungry. Even if you avoid the extensive tasting menu, the additional freebie dishes which intersperse your a la carte selection will make sure you don't leave hungry. Superb wine list, and impeccable food. Lovely attentive service, and a beautiful room with a great view. It was without fault, though when you... More

From start to finish,this dining experience was stunning. We had the taster menu and every course was a delight. Look out for the water menu (about an inch thick!) the wine tomes (the Italian wines alone stretch to another inch) and the choice of salt. What can I say, I had the black Hawaiian Volcanic salt-ace. Don't be put off... More

Great food and service. Very expensive! Most I've ever paid for a meal but, I looked at the menu on line and was prepared.Don't order desert they will bring you a silver box with drawers full of treats.Everything is perfectly made, perfectly pretty and perfectly tasty. We had a shared appetizer of pate with apple jelly that was amazing! No... More

This was my first experience of a three star restaurant and my goodness! It was great! We were in the staying in the Cavalieri and so we were lucky enough to get a reservation on short notice. We had the full tasting menu and from start to finish it was fantastic. I would say the only negative was that there... More

An unforgettable experience. We chose to have four courses rather than the gourmet menu and the standards were exceptional. The bread with tasting olive oil and sea salts was as good as any bread that I have tasted ( and I win prizes for my bread!). All the courses were flawless, both for presentation and flavour. The petit fours were... More

Flawless food, as can be expected, at Rome's only three Michelin star restaurant. The Amberjack marinated in yuzu and lemongrass on guacamole with soya macaroon was a particularly interesting play in taste and texture. The meats were all excellent, of the highest quality. The staff were attentive, and we appreciated that we were allowed to share a cheese course as... More

Experience was good, but not out of this world. The service was ok, but our meal was really rushed. I even asked to slow it down but they brought the main course right after the second course, like minutes later. Wasnt impressed. However, I did have the 'la Pergola' ravioli which was to die for. Easy the best pasta dish... More

This was a special occasion for us.The room is beautiful as is the view. We were not looked after well at all and the bald headed sommelier was very unfriendly and matter of fact. The staff generally need more training as they seem to look after their own Italian diners well. The water menu is unnecessary, but the wine list... More
