Wide variety of different types of food (Fish, Meat, Veg) and it was pleasantly served by unobtrusive and cheerful staff. Would have no problem recommending this to anyone.

After a couple of days of really average food in Rome did a trip advisor search and found this gem! What excellent fresh food, lovely wines and dessert, life has effectively spoiled italian food for us! Please try their selection of fresh cheeses, so fresh they were moist inside, the fettuccini pasta and the panna cota. Oh the panna cota!

Fantastic is the only way to describe the food at this restaurant. My wife had the lobster taster menu while I had the black truffle menu and from the first mouthful to the last the taste was outstanding and the accompaning wines were first rate. Oh, by the way the staff were fantastic as well!!

Chose to eat here twice in five days because the food was wonderful. A well designed menu, a good choice of wines by the glass and attentive but not pestering staff. The lobster tagliolini was just delicious and the panna cotta one of the best I've ever eaten. I would return in a heartbeat! The restaurant is not cheap but... More

VERY poor service. Before we even sat down waitress instructed us that my 6yo son can only sit on a chair, not couch (!!).. To make things worse she said we can't just order some desserts (fruits) and a bottle of wine, we HAVE TO order dinner in order to stay there. So.. We left the place, will never come... More

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at Life and would, without a doubt, return again. Which we did the next evening. The service was attentive (the servers remembered us, always a nice sign), the wine excellent and the food outstanding. I enjoyed the same entree both evenings (sea bass) and my wife a different pasta dish each night, (the... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant as we asked for a pizza recommendation. We went on the weekend and reservations seemed to be a must. We sat outdoors and ordered a glass of wine each, and separate pizzas. The pizza was huge and the toppings were also appropriate. We enjoyed our meal greatly and would go again to try the... More

Great location, food was delicious and wine as well. I spent two weeks in Rome and I came here at 3 times, always a pleasant experience. Expensive, great quality though.
