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.

The best dinner i have eaten.

Fine dining at its best. Not to complicated and try hard. Just fantastic food, surroundings, service and wine collection. Book along time ahead (months) and get a window table if possible. You will be able to enjoy views almost on par with the food. The La pergola ravioli is to die for. Not... read more

On arrival the night view over Rome is just stunning. (sit outside if weather permits). Wow. We chose the 9 course tasting menu with wine paring, which was a good choice. Portion size, presentation, and taste was absolutely 3 star! Our favourites were: Scampi tartare, squids and finger lime, medallions of lobser marinated in yuzu, fillet of veal with summer... More

We had the nine course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was exquisite. Everything you would expect of a Micheline 3 star restaurant. The views are as beautiful as the food. This is truly for a special occasion and best enjoyed when you can throw your wallet out the window.

From the absolutely stunning terrace view, to the excellent service and the finest food and wine, our visit to La Pergola was truly as perfect as I hoped it would be. There was such an attention to detail to make every aspect of the meal exquisite without feeling overly formal or stuffy. Before the main event started we enjoyed a... More

We made reservations for La Pergola in May and were able to get a table for a Wednesday night at 7:30. This is, I believe, one of their earlier settings, but fine with us as we didn't finish our dinner until 11:00. We chose the Gourmet menu with wine pairings and it was lovely. Each course was wonderful. The only... More

I was really looking forward to this dinner. Views were amazing, service was great but food.... was very disappointing. I'm not sure if the chef has tasted his food recently but it was nothing close to what you would expect from 3 michelin star restaurant. Someone compared it to French Laundry earlier - not even close! There was no taste!... More

During the day Rome had been burning in temperatures in the sun of over 40 degrees and we were like Nero looking down over the city from the terrace of La Pergola . What a wonderful setting and the food matched in every way . The signature dish of Fagotelli which is ravioli with a carbonara filling is just sublime... More

We were staying at the hotel so got a last minute table a day earlier than expected. Don't get distracted by the water menu; the food here was simply outstanding. Course after course was innovative and delicious. Highly recommended experience.
