We stayed at the Sofitel and ate at this roof top restaurant several times. You can eat indoors or outside on the patio. The views are spectacular...particularly of St.Peters. The food is wonderful and the chef very creative. Both lunch and dinner are equally good. The service could not be better. The wine list is wonderful and the wine steward... More

Well worth a trip for an amazing view looking west to the Vatican to watch the sunset. It was quiet when we went and the atmosphere was very relaxed. I imagine it gets busy in warmer months.

An amazing view of Rome and The Vatican with truly outstanding service. On the downside, food was just ok. We had high hopes and expectations after reading the reviews. Pricing is definitely not for the faint of heart or budget-conscious travelers.

Lovely first night dinner outside. The view is fantastic and the food was perfect. We enjoyed every minute of it. Bar area inside gets busy, but we were in our own world out on the terrace.

This restaurant has a lovely setting on the rooftop of the hotel overlooking Rome. We had drinks outside at sunset and then moved inside for dinner (it gets a little chilly). The meat tasting menu was wonderful - would highly recommend. Staff were all excellent.

For a start the views are fairly restricted as there is a building to the left that cuts off the most interesting panorama of Rome that is to the West so how someone can describe thus place,as having the best views is beyond me (go to Imago for those).

Description
Overlooking the gardens of the Villa Borghese, the beautiful park of the Villa Medici, with the backdrop of the Dome of St. Peter's Basilica, La Terrasse Cuisine & Lounge offers a breathtaking view of the 'Eternal City'. Ideal atmosphere for a moment of pure relaxation, it becomes the perfect place for an aperitif, an event, a business lunch, a candlelight dinner. Ingredients selected from the nearby Roman countryside, love of Italian and French traditions and constant innovation are the characteristics that distinguish the cuisine of the Executive Chef Giuseppe D'Alessio. His menu becomes a triumph of Mediterranean flavors and aromas. Il menu dello Chef è un trionfo di sapori e profumi mediterranei.

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 20:00.
