In September 2007 did a shopping and restaurant tour of Rome with big success.
Now, to make things clear, you need money to visit "La Pergola" plus you have to reserve a couple of months in advance. Having mentioned that, the rest is pure poetry. From the moment your taxi drives you in the impressive Hilton Cavalieri's runway you realise that you are there for something really special.
The view is breathtaking, the restaurant is amazing, food, wine, service, all in detail. Unbelievable. For one night you really feel like an Emperor. Other places I strongly reccomend when in Rome:
L’ Altro Mastai(similar concept as "La Pergola)
Via Giraud, 53 (by the Via dei Banchi Nuovi crossroad) NEAR piazza Navona
La Trattoria (Good Value)
Via del pozzo delle cornacchie, 25 06/68301427 between Pantheon e Piazza Navona
FOR FISH DO NOT MISS:
Quinzi & Gabrieli
Via Delle Coppelle 6, Rome (06-6879389), right near the Piazza Navona
(Expensive but fish never tasted better)
For typical Roman food and atmosphere:
Matricianella Via del Leone 2/4
Tel: +39 06 6832100 near Spanish Steps
For a relaxing wine and light food night:
Cul de Sac
Piazza Pasquino, 73 (very near Piazza Navona) Tel: +39 06 68801094
and for God's sake DO NOT go to 'La Terrazza Dell' Eden", you'll be most dissapointed and ribbed off.
