After 10 days in Italy surviving on panninis, pasta and pizza, we had to go somewhere different and this turned out to be perfect! The location is only a couple minutes away from the big tourist areas, so its quiet convenient. We ended up having chicken teriyaki, udon, gyoza and one or two other things, and couldn't have been more... More

Very good little Japanese restaurant. Comparable in quality and cost to some of our often frequented sushi restaurants in London. Quite a bit of variety on menu eg had okonomyaki alongside soup noodles and various sushi, sashimi etc. Nice alternative when you are tired of pasta and pizza, actually ended up going there twice during our 7 day stay in...

After a lot of pizza and pasta it felt fresh to have some sushi and this place is okay. They had some awesome looking sushi and me and my wife decided to take to different and share, two variants of california rolls one with fried crab and one with fish. They looked awesome and tasted good but almost the same.... More

After eating a lot of Italian food (which I love but needed a change), we had a craving for Japanese. We accidentally ran into this place while getting lost looking for a Chinese place. After seeing Tripadvisor sticker on the door we went in. We were not disappointed. Ramen noodles were delicious and so was my udon noodle dish with... More

Service was very thoughtful and the food was a very good quality. Recommend this to Japanese who got sick of Italian cuisine ;)

After many (albeit wonderful) meals of pasta, pasta, pizza, secondi's and more pasta, we needed a bit of a change in our week in Florence. This place was just next to our apartment, and we were initially hesitant about how good the food quality would be. Reassuringly the staff were Japanese, however the place was empty apart from us! Nonetheless... More

Although they serve sushi, this restaurant is more Chinese than Japanese, and it shows. On the day I went, they had no tuna (??????????). And they seem to think there is nothing wrong with the fact that they charge €15 for 12 pieces of tuna and salmon sashimi, and also €15 for 9 pieces of salmon sashimi. When questioned, I... More

Fresh and light quality food, it was spot on every bite. Authentic sushi that did not feel commercialized or changed to a European style (i.e. Germany likes dill on their sushi). English speaking but not dedicated parking. Kid friendly and great ambiance, it is a great alternative if one is tired of Italian food while in Florence.

We found this restaurant via T.A. and realized that it was steps away from our hotel, the L'Orologio. The restaurant was dimly lit and offered both tables and tatami seating. Our hotel called ahead to confirm that the restaurant used sunflower oil in their fryer-safe for our nut-allergic son. The other sushi restaurant we visited near the Palazzo Vecchio used... More
