Was recommended to come here by a friend and wasn't disappointed. I had one of the taster menus. It was €75 a head but we both had plenty of courses and wine. It was beautiful food. Would definitely go back if I visited Rome again.

We ate here twice during our recent trip to Rome. There is a large menu from pizza, & pasta to a champagne tasting menu (one of several tasting menus). Situated on the quiet Via della Vite, close to the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps, Life is a busy popular restaurant with decent (but sometimes slow) service that we would... More

The best meals we had in Rome. They took the typical traditional Italian meals and made them special in interesting ways. So good we went twice.

We had a large group and they set us up as a private dining room off the main area. Food, wine, beer and service were all excellent. None of the starters, mains or deserts across the 11 people were anything less than excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

I would recommend Life as a NON tourist trap restaurant in a very touristic area. We ordered Pizza, Salad and Pasta, all were great.

Although there is plenty of outside seating, we preferred to eat inside to avoid any smoking, and we felt very comfortable in the surrounds of the various painted scenes etc, giving it a cosy feel. The service of course was spot on and attentive to our requests. We shared a lasagne - lovely, then had roast lamb and the meat... More

We walked into this restaurant in Rome on our second night in town. They were nice enough to take without a reservation. We didn't really expect anything special but the lasagna was the greatest we ever. The service was great. Even though they were turning away people since there was no more tables, we were never rushed. Food, staff, location,... More

This is a fantastic restaurant located in a great central location. We went there for my girlfriends birthday and were not disappointed. We tried the tasting menus which we would both recommend. I had the black truffle (beef) and girlfriend the lobster, came served with the relevant wine for each course. Was very tasty and different. So great all round... More
