Everything was quite good. There was nothing I HAVE TO eat again but I would highly recommend it for a relaxed dinner. Prices good. Service good. Food good. Nothing to complain.

Stumbled across this restaurant after a visit to the Spanish Steps. Had a delicious lunch with excellent wine. The restaurant had a modern feel with very friendly staff. The seafood pasta was excellent!

I was at life with my friends because the concierge at the first hotel highly recommended. Located in central of Rome, life is a modern decor which is nice and different from other restaurants around there. The service was friendly and attentive, food was very scrumptious. I'll go back there for sure in my next trip.

Life was recommended by a tour guide after a visit to the Borghese Gallery, and we sat at the sidewalk seating outside the restaurant for a perfect lunch. We returned for dinner later in the week, which was equally... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, 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.
