We ate here upon a friend's recommendation and ended up dining at Life every day while in Rome... The lobster tasting menu, not to be missed as well as all their carpaccios.

We made this our last dinner on our 3 week trip. It was everything we could have hoped for. Friendly staff, great wine selection, and the truffle carpaccio, pasta, and steak, was the best send-off we could have asked for. Make a reservation ahead! Also perfectly located near the Spanish steps and all that wonderful shopping!

This restaurant is a perennial favourite. The food, atmosphere and service is consistently excellent. Our waiter Francesco was delightful and super efficient - nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing and well presented. Really good value for money. Will be definitely returning to this wonderful restaurant.

There are lots restaurants that should be on your GO list when traveling to Rome....Life should one of them. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is amazing! We went for Christmas lunch and we were made to be very special even though they were quite busy.

This place had one of the most beautiful interiors... the wait staff were fantastic and the food beautiful... the beef carpaccio with the truffles is a must.... it is out of this world. I had pasta with tomatoe it was simple and plain (and as we discovered as are most pasta dishes in Rome) although plain was beautiful. My husband... More

Last night in Rome, decided to treat the wife and kids to a degustation culinary experience. Read the reviews and knew I couldn't go wrong. On arrival, greeted at the door and our jackets and coats taken. Francesco our maitre'd introduced himself and kindly explained the types of degustations available. We eventually decided to have the seafood degustation paired with... More

I had visited Life many times over the past years and have witnessed it development over time. It is such a pleasure to return and see this restaurant step up another notch in its quality, decor, menu choice, service and ultimately delicious food. Hats off to the leadership behind this restaurant that is steering it towards the top in Rome.... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
