Very good!

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... read more

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.

Lunch menu is fairly competitive at Eur 15: although Japanese food is unlikely to be much craved by tourists looking for a Roman experience in the eternal town, the offer is pretty compelling. Quantity is not scarce and the quality is good overall. Lunch menu actually comes with different options (sushi, sashimi, warm meat or warm fish) as a main,... More

Wife was craving sushi after eating Italian for a week straight. The sushi was good, except compared to California, it's average. The nigiri was good, but the pieces were sliced really thin, for 4 euros a piece I was expecting more fish. Best value is getting the 40 euro combo of nigiri and maki. Their ebifry was off-the-hook-delicious. After eating... More

After a long day of walking and shopping around we wanted to find the closest restaurant to us. We were in the mood for some Japanese and we came across Hamasei on TripAdvisor and the reviews seemed great. What a fantastic meal that was! The service was great and the food was so delicious we still talk about it! Thanks... More

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

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.
