While recently in Rome, I took an evening to have a meal at Life restaurant. The restaurant is located conveniently near the Spanish Steps. Walking into the dining room I noticed lots of customers, this always makes me excited because it usually means I’m in the presence of good food!
I wanted to get a real feel for the Life restaurant so I ordered two tasting menus! One was of course their black truffle tasting menu and the other was their lobster tasting menu. One started with salmon and the other with several carpaccios. Practically every item on both plates was fantastic! I especially enjoyed the salmon from lobster tasting menu.
Moving right along, the next dish that really caught my attention had to be the homemade ravioli filled with burrata cheese, parmesan cream topped with black truffle. This was possibly the best ravioli that I’ve ever tasted.
The next dish that I’d like to take note of is the sea bass fillet with artichoke salad, lemon sauce and crunchy king prawn. I’ve never had a prawn cooked quite like this, and I must say I truly enjoyed it. It was slightly crispy on the outside and full of flavor. The prawn contrasted nicely with the artichoke and made for a fantastic dish.
Next up was dessert. There was a crunchy puff pastry with pistachios and strawberries as well as a pastry with chantilly cream and dark chocolate. Both were creamy and looked gorgeous! Out of the two, my favorite in both looks and taste was the pastry with dark chocolate.
Overall, the evening at Life restaurant was great! I loved this part of Rome, and I think the food truly backed up the positive reviews I found online. I was able to sample a majority of their menu, and was able to come to a positive conclusion! I enjoyed most of the dishes with a few that were much better than others. One thing I would have appreciated would have been better wine pairings. Regardless, the service throughout the evening was very timely and enjoyable. When it’s all said and done, I can definitely recommend you to visit Life restaurant in Rome, Italy!
