We were looking forward to this dinner reservation after reading many of the reviews of this place. And we were not disappointed. Especially recommended are the tasting menus with the wine pairing ... especially the Fish and the Truffle menus. Excellent food choices with great...wine selections accompanied. Very nice staff ... a great place for a special dinner to enjoy Italian food and wine. A little price for Rome these days ... but worth it.More

A great place with a super delicious truffle menu, great pasta, wine and desserts. I’ve tried the best ravioli in my life here (photo 1). The service is of a high level, the waiters are friendly, witty, even multi-lingual and can suggest good options from...the menu. Love the place and for sure will be back when I’m back to Rome.More

Overall great food and service. All courses were great. We can recommend especially the truffle courses. Wine selection is broad - a bit pricy but very well selected. Service was perfect. Will definitely come back. Thank you for a great evening!

Randomly chose to have lunch at Life Ristorante and it was soooo delicious, we went back for dinner. We did a 4 course tasting menu that was superb! Their use of Truffle Mushrooms in every course was OUTSTANDING! Their menu is seasonal, so when you...visit, you won't know what their specialty will be at the time. The service was 5 star as well! If you want fresh quality ingredients, perfect service and ambiance this is your place. Also, after we dined here, we found out it is one of Rome's #1 places to dine in the metro area.More

On the recommended list by our hotel, Elizabeth Unique. Higher quality, more creative food than the typical osteria with romantic vibe. Outside seating on picturesque side street in Spanish Steps area, with good spacing of tables. Waiter Francesco is quite attentive, expressly asking for TripAdvisor...mention so here it is.More
