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.

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

Heinz Beck's kitchen at La Pergola is a must in Rome. The view from the terrace overlooking Rome and St Peter's Basilica is in itself worth the visit. However, the best part of the experience is the cuisine with its classic Italian inspiration but with a decidedly refined modern twist. The fagottelli are the most delicious and innovative twist that... More

We had a perfect night. The service was great and the food just had the perfect flavors. There was innovation within classic Italian dishes and execution was superb. My favorite dish was the lobster. I definitely plan to go back here when we're in Rome.

This was our second visit to La Pergola. This time we took the full menu and was an exceptional experience. All plates were excellent. The fagottini la pergola one of the best plates I have ever eaten. Service was as usual top quality. Only issue was the table. We asked for a romantic table. Last time we got a window... More

I have been to several areas of Italy over the years and always end up eating in a tourist trap (there are many of these). It was a pleasure, then, to dine at La Pergola and eat Italian food as it is meant to be. Setting: the restaurant is at the lower floor of the über-glitzy Rome Cavalieri hotel which... More
