My husband and I ate here on our last night in Rome. I had the lobster tasting menu and my husband had the truffle tasting menu. For €20 extra per person we also had the wine pairing - an absolute steal for 4 really nice glasses of wine with each meal. The food was stunning and there was lots of... More

Life was recommended by the team at Portrait Roma hotel. We ended up having 3 meals at Life during our 4 day stay in Rome. Twice for lunch and once for dinner. Great choice of food, particularly the lobster pasta - delicious! Fantastic, warm and welcoming service from Francesco, Olga and the team. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Rome

Visited the restaurant whilst visiting Rome for the first time. Location is great, down a pretty side street with a lovely terrace. Visited in March so the terrace is also heated if it gets cold. Went for the black truffle tasting menu. Don't usually go for matched wines, but it was only 22 euros extra so gave it a go.... More

We arrived without a reservation last night and were accommodated with outside seating. Beautiful setting. Covered. Warm. My wife and I were treated wonderfully by everyone. The lobster tasting menu was delicious. We couldn't have been happier with the food and service. Life is special.

We booked a table from the UK a month or so before we ate, based upon the good reviews it has received. We had the lobster tasting menu with a flight of wine and were not disappointed. The table was covered with red rose petals and the staff were very helpful - very romantic. The food was very good with... More

A must to visit as the food is excellent and nice atmosphere! We went on Sunday and although we hadn't booked it was fairly early about 7.30pm and they managed to fit us in but would recommend booking before if possible.

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Colonna
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.
