One of the best meals in Italy

As a foodie traveling around Italy this was a meal to remember. The lobster tasting menu was amazing and throwing in the truffle ravioli was a perfect way to get a full tasting of Life's inventive and delicious cuisine.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday here. We ate a menu with 5 courses, it was extremely delicious. Our favorit was the ravioli. Francesco and his waitress colleague made the evening unforgattable for my wife! Thank you.

My boyfriend and I had our final dinner in Rome at Life, and it was the perfect choice. We made a reservation via email, and the staff was so friendly. There was a semi-drunk couple next to us, lecturing the waiter about American micro-brews, and the way waiter interacted with them made me smile; he seemed genuinely interested and was... More

We chose Life as recommended on trip advisor and because it was a 2 minute walk from our hotel on Via Del Corso. We certainly were not disappointed. It's located in a quiet location with some street side dining with a very nice modern interior. We ate inside and from the minute we walked through the door enjoyed the whole... More

Some meals at our table were out of this world delicious (ravioli) while others were tasty, but not exceptional. The staff was very friendly and the ambiance was pleasing. We chose this restaurant based on positive online reviews and enjoyed a nice evening. We will look for another restaurant with positive reviews to try next.

What a great discovery! We have recommended this restaurant to a number of friends visiting this summer and all came back very impressed. We had meat carpaccio, lasagna which was really... More

The food was amazing, authentic Italian and definitely not a tourist trap. Our waiter Francesco was excellent. Short distance to Spanish steps for post-dinner walk. Would definitely recommend to any traveler.

My wife and I ate here on our first night in Rome. We arrived late and the hotel called over to make sure their was a table available. Fortunately for us, there was outside seating available for us. We sat down and ordered two Negroni's. Very good! My wife ordered the pasta Amatriciana and it might have been one of... 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.
