With active TripAdvisor we found Life in the busiest hour of lunch and they had a nice quiet table inside. Delicious ravioli with black truffle for me and a chocolate mousse for dessert. The ravioli was superb. Enough truffle, but not too much. The other...More

Very professionally run restaurant in a sleek modern style. Food was good quality and a wide range of wines across different price levels. No Romans appeared to be in the restaurant and loudest language was American. Maitre'D was efficient and friendly

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

parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty
face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
