I've been here a couple of days ago with my mum. The food was great, the ambient good and the people too.. The waiter was rude and I do not think he was from Japan.. Anyway good place to eat sushi in Rome...very similar to some sushi restaurant in London!

We went with our two children and our son having lived 12 years in Japan was very pleased to be able to speak Japanese! We did not select this restaurant in advance as it mentionned 'sushi' and we wanted a wider selection of food, but by pure luck we went there one evening! The welcome and service offered, by mainly... More

Visited on the last day of December 2014 with my 16-year-old son, who loves cucumber makis. His selection of makis was declared excellent, much better than the standard fare in Rome's many Japanese/Chinese/panAsian eateries. Tuna, mackerel sashimi also very good, less so the prawns in the mixed selection. Meal was really let down by the poor quality of the tempura... More

My family has been living in rome for the past 20 years and I used to go to this restaurant long time ago and always love the position in the city centre close to piazza di spagna and the ambiance of the restaurant, very clean, very professional. I went back after years in December for a special occasion and found... More

First of all this place is large and has a long sushi bar. A roll avrages about 7 euro, noodles 13; the higher price is probably due to proximity to the Spanish steps. Overall we were pleased with our experience.

I've eaten in several Japanese restaurants in Italy and in my opinion this is one of the best. The staff is actually Japanese (which is often not the case), service and food are extremely good. The menu offers an impressive selection of plates, besides sushi and sashimi. It is more expensive than the average, but it is definitely worth it.... More

Very good food served by a nice woman in kimono. We hadn't booked so they put us in a very narrow table but it was OK. We ate until we couldn't anymore and the bill amazed us: even if it was not cheap, it was less expensive than the bill we had in a traditional Roman restaurant the night before.... More

We always go to this restaurant when visit Rome - japanese food is authentic and REAL (in comparison with other so called "japanese" places in Italy. You can find even table prepared suki-yaki dish in menu. Really recommend it when You are tired of pizza and pasta! LOL

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.
