La Pergola Restaurant Review: The chef at what many today consider to be the best restaurant in Rome isn't Italian but German --- Heinz Beck. (According to fans, Beck's success springs from having mastered not only Italian cooking but the Italian mentality.) Among Beck's specialties: duck foie gras with apple, almond and amaretti, liquorice crusted John Dory on almond cream with lemon shrimp and simple but sublime pastas. All this plus a breathtaking city view from this perch atop the Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts.
