La Pergola

Monte Mario
Modernist Cuisine

Even if you haven’t come to Rome for ultra-fancy, haute gastronomie, you shouldn’t miss La Pergola. The city’s only Michelin three-star restaurant, it’s perched on the roof of the hilltop Rome Cavalieri hotel, offering some of Rome’s best views. But you’re really coming here for chef Heinz Beck’s inventive cuisine. His seasonally changing menu re-spins the recipes and ingredients of traditional Roman meals into alta moda, using just enough molecular and modernist ingenuity to wow.
