This is an absolute gem of a restaurant. We dined as a group of 4 in the private dining area on a busy Saturday evening in February. It was just one of those dining experiences where everything comes together to make the perfect evening and one that we would recommend to others without hesitation.
Its excellence, I think, is in the attention to detail..a warm welcome on arrival from the owner, contemporary decor, professional and friendly staff and a menu that is both exquisite and good value for money.
The two men had different options from the Tasting Menu, complete with wine for each course, whilst the two ladies chose from the main menu. All of the food was just delicious...perfect sized portions, fantastic presentation and really really good to eat. Timing was impeccable too.
When we return to Rome...we will head straight there. It lives up to its reviews and for us was one of those really memorable evenings....for all the right reasons.

Wonderful location, wonderful ambience, wonderful staff, wonderful host. I ate in the Prive room and was welcomed personally by the owner which was a very nice touch. The staff were very helpful yet not intrusive which was refreshing as most restaurants ask several times whether things are ok while you are actually trying to eat!

We had debated, when making the reservation, whether we should go to a more traditional restaurant instead. Having tried several of those, we were happy with our choice of Ristorante Life for dinner on New Year's Day. It was a more modern restaurant, and turned out to be a nice experience. We were in a small, intimate dining room and chatted with a French couple next to us. The menu was extensive! I started with burratta cheese in a phyllo pastry with patanegra ham and asparagus. My husband's appetizer was noodles with mushrooms and truffles. Our friends shared a Greek salad, and each had pizza. My husband and I shared a special fish encrusted in salt. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera that evening.
