“Below average sushi and mediocre service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We are a family of 4 American expatriates living in Rome for the last 2-some years. Our two little kids (12 and 10) recently started eating sushi at Sushisen and Sushi and noodles in the Aventino area. This Saturday night though we wanted to stay close to home. We went to this place with guarded expectations due to them touting the "all you can eat" affair. We sat down in the cavernous place. We ordered from the menu typical average stuff - chicken tempura for the kids, sushi + Sashimi combo for the non kids. The first plates came fast. The sushi was edible but nothing to write home about - lots of rice, very little fish. Nothing fancy either - no eel, no scalop. This is your beginner's sushi - shrimp, tuna, salmon, that's pretty much it. The service is similar to the sushi - the beer can came but no glass. My wife's rainbow roll (not much of a rainbow there) came 35mins after ordering it. My daughter's gyoza's (italians call them raviolis :-)) ) took 25 mins (slow microwave I guess). Please note that this is at 8pm. Imagine if the place was actually busy!! Bottom line edict - if you are looking for good sushi this is not the place. Add to that the tough parking around Bologna and the slooooow service. I would recommend you look somewhere else.
