Excellent restaurant (but not inexpensive). We are early because we had an early curtain - No problem. The food was very good. I had the chicken pizza, which was the best I ever ate. My wife had chicken, which was very good.

Sunday dinner. Raining night. I really say thanks to Life's owners. They changed completely my mood. The fresh fish, excellent truffle (white and black), the superb wine, the incredible meat with mushrooms helped us to enjoy a special night in a friendly atmosphere. Courtesy and warm place completed our dinner. Great value for money.

Found this restaurant via trip advisor and made reservations for dinner. Restaurant consists of several rooms and outdoor seating. It seemed they put tourists together and Italians separated. We had beef and veal whereof the latter had a funny aftertaste. The chef even came out and explained there was nothing wrong with the meat. Staff were very friendly and great... More

Wecame here the first night we got to Rome. Fantastic service, and great food. We all had the truffle tasting menu paired with wine. Everything was perfect and amazingly good. We liked it so much we went back on our last night in Rome.

Probably this was the best meal we had in italy (i say probably because I went to a really good restaurant in Venice and i'm still not sure which one is better). We had pasta with... More

Good value for money. Not touristy. Good menu, they also had a great set lunch menu which had 5 courses (or more) plus wine or champagne for 70 euro, good value if you plan to spend the afternoon eating and drinking. Next time I will do this! Would recommend, close to trevi fountain.

In the city center of Rome, next to Via del Corso. After a long walk at the shops you may stop for a lunch break in this reastaurant. The decor is modern and along with the polite personel it is one of the best places to stop for lunch and relax. Every sigle plate we ordered was extremely tasteful!

This place is awesome. The staff are friendly and efficient. The wine list is good but reasonably priced and the food is great. I ended up eating here twice. The starters of bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and the pasta with sea robin fish were lush, Fresh, clean and tasty. The lasagne, well I have to say it's the best I've... More
