I had great trouble looking for this restaurant, as I followed the GPS in both my phone and car. It took me three turns to finally find it. By the time I reached there, the kitchen's supposed to be closed. Fortunately the waiter was nice enough to give me last order. He politely asked me to order as soon as... More

Love their spicy tuna temaki, snow white roll and yaki soba. Their food is good, no doubt about that. Service is acceptable. But the price is definitely overcharged. They are charging 50% more than other Japanese restaurants in Florence!

It has been years since going to Momoyama. I love the entry and the ground floor! It is so disappointing that they cram all the guests on the top level that is very stuffy and really smells of fried food. Not a good sign for any restaurant especially Japanese. The wine list is appalling choice is limited and what they... More

First time we went for sushi in Florence. My expectancies were not very high and right I was. Almost all the fish is farmed. The story goes that it is for ethical reasons. In that case you do not serve tuna... The wine list is disappointing. The waitresses and the owner are very efficient.

Two days ago I had dinner for my first time at Momoyama and I have to say it was a very nice experience!! I've already tried different sushi restaurants and bars in Florence (my own city) but Momoyama it's absolutely the best. Fish is great and well dressed for taste and view pleasure. The owners, two real Florence guys, help... More

For the prices that this place demands, we could have gone to a Michelin rated restaurant and had a much better dining experience. Regardless of pricing, food was mediocre and service incredibly slow, even for European standards. You're better off searching for a mom and pop Japanese restaurant.

Great food, great atmosphere, nice friendly staff, would definitely recommend this restaurant, the tempura prawns were amazingly fresh, the food was a bit pricey but definitely worth it

I try to go to Momoyama everytime I'm in Florence. The food is amazing; fish is fresh and tasty, they have a nice selection of wines, and delicious desserts. The architecture is very modern, minimalist and extremely pretty. Last but not least, the service is excellent. They're fluent in English. They're very helpful and pleasant. Ask for Duccio di Giovanni,... More
