We were seated outdoors on a Saturday evening. Attentive service and the food and wine was excellent. I recommend the beef carpaccio and the sea bass. Desserts were a treat too!

5 stars is not enough to rate Ristorante Life I would give it 10! We reserved online before heading to Rome and I received a very prompt confirmation. The food was AMAZING, the tasting menu brings enough food well paired with wine. The ambience is very cozy and welcoming. The staff was very tentative and knowledgeable. I highly recommend dropping... More

Had a lovely meal with my wife whilst visiting Rome. We opted for the lobster tasting menu with matching wine and the food was superb. Service was with a smile and attentive however we did feel a bit rushed. Wouldn't expect a 4 course tasting menu to be served and paid for in 1 1/2 hours.

We visited Life twice, and would be happy to return. A stunning menu, caring staff, and excellent food. Indoor or outdoor seating. Knowledgeable wine waiter. My only negative was the food was served a little colder than I would expect. I noted that the plates had not been heating,which would contribute to this. Other than that, a great place to... More

My hubby and I had an amazing meal with superb service while in Rome earlier this week. Fabio was very attentive and made us feel very welcome. The black truffle tasting menu was out of this world. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I was surprised there wasn't a trip advisor seal on the door as the food was superb, the service outstanding, and there was no skimping. I asked another restaurant owner for a good place for lunch and he recommended Ristorante Life. Even for lunch we got bruscetta with a delicious cheese and the best sundried tomato I ever had. My...

Casually elegant dining with attentive, professional service. Close to the Spanish Steps. We began with the delicious selection of Italian meats and cheeses, and a wonderful bottle of red that our server recommended. I was especially pleased with my next course: homemade ravioli filled with ricotta and pecorino cheese, crispy artichoke, and bacon. Life would be an excellent choice for... More

My husband and I went for dinner, such a delight. Modern high class feel, portions are not large but as would be expected in such place. Foods and quality are as expected as well. The file was amazing and truffle mash potatoes ... yum!!! We took the fruit ice cream desert - must try if your culinary curious. Romantic vibe... 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.
