Good food, reasonable prices. Definitely recommend.

To be honest, this was a recommendation from the hotel concierge, as it was just 1 minute walk away from the hotel. Fingers crossed that it was decent, I popped into the empty restaurant at 6pm on a Friday and made a reservation for 8pm. To my surprise, the restaurant was about 3 times bigger than... read more

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Life Restaurant during a recent fabulous trip to Rome. We had a wonderful seat outside, having booked no problem on the internet before travelling. Francesco was our waiter and looked after us so well, excellent service. The food was wonderful and we would love to return here again - as it was... More

I rarely write reviews but I was compelled to write about my experience at Life. I spent two weeks eating my way around Italy and found Life to be an absolute stand out. Firstly, be sure to reserve a table outside. It's cosy and not pretentious at all, plus the staff are extremely attentive even though you are across the... More

On our 3rd night in Rome (visiting for the first time). This is hands down the best meal we have had so far. Food and service both excellent, reasonably priced and lovely atmosphere on a nice quiet side street, but so close to all the action. Will definitely be coming back tomorrow night!

We stumbled upon this restaurant about 3 years ago and thought it looked really modern, stylish and clean. It didn't disappoint - the food was stunning, the staff attentive without being intrusive and the 'uber-cool' manager (italian guys just effortlessly do 'cool' better than anyone), was professional and charming. We ended up going every day of our holiday for dinner... More

The food here is outstanding. Recommend by our hotel staff for excellent dining and a romantic atmosphere, it didn't disappoint. The lobster pasta was excellent. The staff are superb - attentive but also gave space to enjoy the food and intimacy of the setting. We were very satisfied - would highly recommend!

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B (Deko Rome). What a lovely staff. Very customer service oriented. The menu is large but what caught my eye were the two tasting menus. There was one for meat and one for lobster. I think I was a 6 course meal if I remember. We did the wine paring as well. Very reasonably... More

We were in Rome for eight days and ate at 16 restaurants and this was hands-down our favourite. So much so that we had two meals - lunch and dinner at this spot. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Thanks to Trip Advisor, we found Life. I recommend the carpaccio, salmon insalata, tiramisu, gelatocrema cioccol, ice cream, wine, lobster pasta,... 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.
