Our hotel recommended Life, and made a reservation for us in their 'prive' room, which offered just the ambience we were looking for. Quiet room, romantic corner table. For this first visit, we opted to do their a la carte menu, rather than for one of their attractive tasting menus (will do one of those on our return visit, I'm... More

Life was recommended to us by hotel staff. We LOVED spending our first evening dining outdoors at Life! It is on a quiet street in a romantic setting. Everything was delicious from the wine upon arrival to the dessert and after dinner drinks! Our server recommended that we have the ravioli with burrata cheese and black truffle. It did NOT... More

Excellent restaurant. We tried two of the tasting menus, lobster and black truffles. Both excellent. Opted for the wine as well. Best restaurant we ate at in Rome. Well worth it and can't recommend it highly enough.

Wow! My daughter and i were looking for a steakhouse for dinner and our hotel concierge recommended Life. It is not a 'steakhouse' but beef is on the menu. It is on a quieter street just off Spanish Steps, and we sat inside. It was early (745) and we didn't have a reservation (get one!) so we were seated. They... More

First night in rome, booked 6 weeks in advance for 4 for a special family dinner. What a disappointment. 1. We got no service, and i mean no service. We sat outside and had to get the waiters attention for wine, ordering food and not one proactive service contribution in 2 hours. We got way more attention and better service... More

This was probably the best meal we had in Rome. Everything we ordered was perfection. The carbonara and the fillet beef were to die for. Service was prompt and friendly. Couldn't fault this place.

Great night, with great service! The lovely waitress paid great attention to the children and was helpful when recommending choices due to large portion sizes, she also had the dessert Limone Sorbet divided for the children so it looked like they had dessert each. The dinner was delicious and well done - authentic Italian. We went back there again the... More

Visited in March 2014. Last night of our 3 nights in Rome, wanted a good italian meal that wasn't at a typical touristy restaurant. Our B&B was right next to the Trevi (Town house fontana di trevi - also recommend!), and the restaurant is north of all the hustle and bustle, on a quiet street, but still within a 5... More

The hotel we stayed at recommended this restaurant for a nice night out with the family. We were looking for an authentic meal. We started with several anti-pastas including carpaccio, mixed cheeses, mixed meats. We had a wide range of foods including pasta, of course. The wine was good. For dessert, I had a Chantilly cream pastry which was amazing.... More
