Just average

As my boyfriend and I are sushi fans, we took a long journey from the Roma city centre seeking for this place. However, it didn't live up to our expectations. Toro was great. It is the only dish I would recommend. Other sushi and sashimi were just average. Sushi rice was not sour enough as it... read more

I am vegetarian so I cannot talk about the fish dishes - though the person I went (who eats fish) with raves about this place and claims it is the best and freshest in all of Rome. I've heard this from a few Italians actually. I ordered from the menu and did opt for the the rolling cart/table selections. I... More

Good food, nice service when there aren't many people, low quality/price rate, expensive. If you would like assured quality and service, this is the place.

I agree with the majority of comments, Sakana is the best Japanese restaurant in Rome. I have tried many japanese restaurants in Rome and I have been to Japan as well, therefore I have quite a trustworthy benchmark. The quality of food is excellent, the fish is very fresh and sliced generously. The rice is traditional although with some room... More

We were craving Japanese food and this really hit the spot. Dinner starts from 7pm. We sat at the sushi train (conveyor belt) area instead of the tables. English is on the menu :) Tofu miso soup was yum. We had the salmon and unagi nigiri sushi which were fresh and tasty. Tempura and edamame came in fairly large portions.... More

First of all I would like to underline the outstanding service, the waiters are definitely very nice. The restaurant is tiny but well set and you can even choose the kaiten, if you prefer the sushi bar atmosphere rather than the menu à la carte. Sushi is ok, I liked it and we tried the lobster mix, but nothing exciting... More

I dropped by in this tiny Risto with a friend for some Sushi. I ordered a box of Chirashi and my palate was satisfied. My friend,instead, got a platter of mix hosomaki, nigiri and uramaki which I think were not well-made/well-prepared, maybe because they don't have Japanese chefs but she said they were tasty. Service was mediocre,some of the waitresses... More

I went to Sakana sushi based on the Trip advisor review and all I can say I wasted my time and money. Already upon arrival a waiter from the restaurant happened to enter at the same time as me and a grim expression on his face was far from welcoming. I was seated at the bar in front of sushi...

What a fantastic place!! After a month in Italy eating nothing but pasta, bread and pizza ect we were in search of something different. We were skeptical at first of eating Japanese in Italy, but god, how we were wrong. The quality of food at Sakana was incredible and the service was efficient and friendly. The cost was obviously more... More

Neighborhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
