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.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

From the moment you get there to the moment you leave you feel in heaven . I know the price is top however you pay for the experience and the view over Rome. I had the 9 courses and it was definitely too much food. Matching wines were appropriate. My husband picked from a la card and everything was just perfect as you would expect for 520 euro. Once in a life time a must do in Rome !

“Dolci 3 Stars in Rome!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has three outstanding things:

The BEST and MOST AMAZING view of Rome, it is unbeatable, imagine yourself seating outside overlooking Rome, including St Peter's, Piazza Venezia and the like, under summer clear skies.

EXTRAORDINARY food: this time we skipped the guided menu but had great dishes, from raw tuna that my 10 year old loved to La Pergola fagotelle, extra tender veal marinated in pepper and delicious duck. Desserts were plenty and a delicacy, including the 12 mini and complementary desserts and the Gran Dessert (7 in 1). The made when ordered herbal tea is a must to help digestion.

SERVICE was attentive, non-intrusive and nice, the waiters were very helpful but not uptight :) my son went to the restroom and his food arrived and got cold so without having to ask they redid his dish to make sure it was fresh.

If you can afford it (and La Pergola is not as pricey as other 3-Michelin Stars I have been too) go, the three elements described above will make this an unforgettable experience.
