Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I brought my partner to Rome for his birthday and upon searching for a place to eat, I found this restaurant. The reviews led me to make a booking and I'm so glad I did. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful and they...went out of their way to make sure it was a memorable evening. I can't speak highly enough of this amazing restaurant.More

This is such a great restaurant. Quirky small dining areas and fabulous prints on the walls. We had the tasting menus - two of us the lobster one and the other two the truffle one.

We ordered the black truffle tasting menu and it was delightful! Francesco was the best server. He provided excellent service along with some light humor to make the experience even more magical. I would recommend Life to anyone visiting Rome!

We stayed only 1 night in Rome before our Mediterranean Cruise and decided to have dinner here, which was a great idea because we had amazing Italian food with lots of truffles and great wine!

What a fantastic evening… the food, service, vibe were all exceptional. We booked this relatively last minute with not too high expectations but this is definitely one of the best meal experiences we have ever had! We’d like to thank Davide for his exceptional wine...knowledge and advice on specifically Italian wines. Thank you again for a lovely final evening!More

Delightful meal in a contemporary setting. Very pleasant waiters with excellent service. The menu is a large one and there were sections of Artichoke and Truffle specialities. We ate Artichoke to start and Grilled Tuna as main course and it was beautifully prepared. Deserts were...varied and also very tasty. Definitely a place to return to on our next trip to Rome.More

Following a recommendation, we dined here for a romantic dinner. Gorgeous restaurant, tastily decorated, nice artwork and well informed staff offering great service. Started with a lovely cocktail and followed by a trio of fish tartare, traditional pasta and a fish dish and finished with...a gorgeous tiarmisu. We enjoyed a beautiful Brunello wine. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back when in Rome again.More

This was our second visit to Rome and I have to say this was the best meal we’ve ever had in the city. Francesco guided us through an amazing culinary experience. The grilled artichokes were divine, my wife and I compared filets with white and...black truffles - which were amazing, and the puff pastry with Chantilly crème was outstanding - light but delicious. All around amazing service, food, wine and ambiance.More

Best dinner we had in Rome this trip! From the bufala mozzarella to the homemade bread, to the white and black truffle tasting menu. We started with two Negronis: my mom ordered the lobster pasta with white truffle and I had the black truffle filet....Our waiter, Davide, suggested the best bottle of white wine and I was recommended a wonderful Barolo for the steak. Will recommend to family and friends nearby, as well as friends from home whenever they visit! Grazie mille!More
