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... More

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

If you have to wait 15 minutes for a table here on a Saturday night, it's worth it. Book in advance or go early, this means 8 pm by Italian standards to avoid the crowd, and you will find yourself ingratiatingly welcomed with a smile and swiftly attended to and served. The sushi is very fresh, you can really taste... More

I visited a few sushi restaurants in Rome, and this was my favorite. Of the ones I visited, tripadvisor's next highest rated was Hamasei, and the quality of the fish at Sakana was slightly better, and the price was lower, but Hamasei had a more tourist-friendly location. The atmosphere was nice, but I recommend sitting at a table instead of... More
