Best Janpanese restaurant in Rome

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... read 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

Do not even waste your time looking for another sushi restaurant in Rome..Come directly to this place! Comfortable Ambient, helpful and smiling staff, Kaiten sits too! We had nice time and enjoyed great Japanese dishes (thanks to waiters' suggestions). U'll see me again and again! Grazie per la bella serata

They don't know how to do Japanese food, even the owner looks Japanese to me. But the chiefs are looks like Mexican. The Temaki... The Hosomaki.. The Nigiri.. Well, if you never ate real Japanese sushi, the food might be ok. Otherwise, don't bother to try here.

Tried Sakana as our "regulars" were closed in August and were pleasantly surprised. Ordered from menu and service was very quick, staff very much on their toes and helpful, clear menu, good selection. Quality of food about on par with other Japanese restaurants in Rome, good but not outstanding (by international standards). Prices a bit more reasonable than others in... 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.
