La Pergola at Rome Cavalieri -- Rome, Italy
Taking the concept of hotel restaurant to another level, La Pergola is the only one in Rome with three Michelin stars. Long-time Executive Chef Heinz Beck serves a nine-course gourmet menu that -- for a cool $300 -- includes a tasty carpaccio of scallops, green tortellini with seafood, venison salami, and veal cheek. Throw in a wine cellar stocked with a ridiculous 60,000 bottles, stunning view of St. Peter's Basilica, and a water menu complete with 29 choices of water (seriously, water!), and you've got one solid (and well-hydrated) night out in Rome.
Signature dish: Fillet of veal marinated in pepper on aubergine purée
