Even better after 8 years

After 8 years I again had dinner in this restaurant. And again I believe that their set menus are the best in town. I had a truffle menu and my wife went for lobster set. All dishes were excellent and tasty. The only complain was carpaccio - too much oil from my point of view and this hided meat... read more

My boyfriend and I visited Rome the first weekend in February and I found Life after a search on here. The decor and service and food was amazing! The chocolate mousse for dessert was just heavenly! I highly recommend this restaurant..its intimate and the food is delicious without being ridiculously highly priced!

Pre-booked this restaurant for the 27th Jan, via email after a recommendation on a Facebook group and certainly lived up to expectations. We had also looked at the menus prior to going and decided on one of their tasting menus. Service was impeccable and attentive without being intrusive and the whole meal was to die for with the steak being... More

Picked Life through recommendation and some investigations online. Pleasant surprise, had a great lobster four course menu with wines to each course for remarkable 60€. Well preparera food and perfectly ok wines. Attentive service who let my wife try a few different wines before selecting - at the same time very correct but still personal and relaxed. Tries hard and... More

My boyfriend and I visited in October 2015 and the Hotel Spagna recommended we go here. What an amazing evening we had! I've never left so full but it was so worth it. Such wonderful staff! Our waitress spoke such perfect English and was so friendly. It's a small and intimate restaurant with a wonderful choice of food. We had... More

This was such a great restaurant that we came back to it the next night! The staff, music, and décor create a lively yet romantic ambiance. Our waiter Francesco made the evening by being so helpful and accommodating to my gluten allergy. He had a great sense of humor and his is eagerness to ensure we had a great evening... More

As for the restaurant at the tourist district food was not bad. The problem was a service. During dinner waiter did not stop once to pure wine and after main course for 15-20 min he did not bother to approach and offer a dessert.

Steak was probably the best I have ever had in 20 + countries I have traveled to in my life. Price was very good at 120 euros for 3 courses and drink and coffee. Service was great and very friendly. 10000% recommend to all for a classy but affordable special night

This was great. So great in fact that we went back the following day for lunch. The name is somewhat misleading. It sounds like it's going to be a Vegetarian or vegan restaurant or something. It's not. The fact that they call themselves a pizzeria also gives the wrong impression. This is a great Italian and they serve just about... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood 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 center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, 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.
