Gorgeous view! The service was a pleasure, the staff was really lovely and filled every special request with a lot of kindness. And the food-wow! Each dish was made perfectly and looked like 5 star dish. Thank you very much, we had the best meal and date in our trip!

Staff were very friendly and attentive, very knowledgeable - explaining about where the prosecco and olive oil was from etc. Presented meals with an description which were nice. Wine/drinks... More

We made reservations prior to our arrival. We got there early to enjoy the outside patio for drinks and tapas. The service was excellent and prompt. This was my first experience with some of the delicacies we had. We covered everything from different variations of duck liver to pasta and procuttio. It was our best meal of the trip.

This restaurant and bar is located on the roof-top Terrace of the Sofitel Villa Borghese and offers both a bar service and local (but, in my view, over-specialised) cuisine. The seating is ultra-comfortable, you look down literally on to, or at, the gardens of the Villa Borghese, and can see the twin spires of the Church overlooking the Spanish Steps,... 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.

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.
