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.

Went here for our wedding night dinner. This place was excellent and very accommodating towards our vegan diets. The chef even made us a special vegan cake to complete our celebration. The views are amazing since it sits above the city of Rome. The service and food was perfect. Just keep in mind this place isn't cheap but worth your... More

Without a doubt La Pergola deserves its three star rating, the food is innovative yet rooted in traditional Roman/Italian cuisine. We did the 9 course tasting menu and it was absolutely incredible; a variation of themes and flavors created with flair and high quality. We particularly enjoyed the selection of waters--and learned the nuances of water. The wine list is... More

We visited the restaurant to celebrate my son's 16 birthday. This restaurant lives up to its name and truly deserve the stars. Food was good and service impeccable. Most interesting was the wide choice of water, the most expensive being $340 euro per bottle.

Beck is outstanding. This is haute cuisine in Italy, with all the benefits from traditional Italian ingrediants, plus the creativity of a great Chef. No Schnickschnack, but a deep understanding of the purity and the variety of meat and fish and vegetables and Pasta and spices etc. He is THE Chef. The wines are equal. It is something Special to...

We came to restaurant blinded by glitters of the hotel, restaurant is pretty classic and slightly kitschy (if you ask me), but atmosphere is nice. We were in 4, and we enjoyed this kind of dinner. Good service and good quality food, but I must say, the mains that we ordered were bit disappointing. It is not first Michelin star... More

I have travelled to many of Heinz Beck's restaurants around the world so this was very high on my bucket list. I was fortunate to have earned a few air miles to travel over to Rome for the weekend to tick it off. Wow. I had to make my booking about two months in advance and I had forgotten that... More

Our experience at La Pergola exceeded our expectations in every respect. From the time we were seated (my wife had a view of the Vatican lit in the evening) and offered a glass of champagne or prosecco to our last bit of chocolate truffle, the evening was magical. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu with out the cheese... More

Not sure how I summarise our experience in this wonderful restaurant, as it was faultless. As you enter the lift from the hotel reception, you enter a food heaven, with a very warm welcome as you walk up to the front desk. Then as you walk through the restaurant to the table, you get to see the enjoyment on the... More
