Good quality freshly made

Had a hankering for sushi in Rome, this place is modern and trendy, as opposed to a lot of the small Italian restaurants which have become tired over the years. The service was good without being great but the food was fantastic. I agree with previous comments that the pricing is a little bit high... read more

I've had lunch here with my friends during a visit in Rome to meet them. The staff's politeness struck us, we've been greeted kindly from everyone. I had salmon and avocado Uramaki and a kind of chicken meat skewers called Yakitori. Everything was really delicious, the fish was fresh and the meat cooked perfectly. Nice that you can eat in...

After traveling through Europe for two straight weeks, we wanted to eat something other than the pasta and pizza. We looked for a good Japanese restaurant to dine at and this place was our choice. Our sushi was delicious and fresh and the Udon noodles we shared was very satisfying as well. The total bill for two of us girls... More

walked by when lost in Rome, as we often were, and decided a change of food was needed. Perfect Sashimi, Sushi and Tonkatsu

Very good food, good location and very reasonable lunch menu. Given its location in central Rome, the restaurant was full of locals and the food was great for lunch. Would definitely go back

The waitresses were very efficient, fast and very nice. The interior of the hotel was nice, it gave the "Asian" feel. The Salmon I ordered came with soup and rice. It was just ok. For the price, I've had way better in other parts of Europe.

I guess it would not be fair to say that this place wasn't great. We live in Hawaii where we have fresh fish all the time. For a restaurant in Rome serving sushi this was a good place to come.

We asked at the Westin for an alternative to pasta, such as sushi, and they quickly recommended this place. We enjoyed our meal. It was exactly what we were looking for -- delicious, reliable non-Italian food. It's not quite like a New York Japanese restaurant, but the sushi was very fresh, all food high quality, and the sake was excellent.... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
