Just outside the centre of the city, a good price for good food. We enjoyed the meal which was tasty and well presented by attentive staff. The restaurant was busy on a Friday night. This is not the best Japanese food I've had but it was good. The complementary aubergine appetiser was really good.

We have been in this place with friends, spending a pleasant evening. The environment is small, but not claustrophobic, divided between the area with a few tables and the area with the conveyor belt. We tried to sample different dishes, but especially sushi and sashimi. Everything is served with great care and with courtesy. The raw material is good, and... More

A solid, excellent Japanese dining experience. I've only had sushi with fish this fresh in Tokyo, Japan, and at Sakana you can find rare and delicious cuts of fish like otoro, the fatty tuna which literally melts in your pith. Besides from supremely executed sushi, cooked dishes are tasty and fun, with delicious soups (ramen and soba), fried dishes and... More

Excellent food and service. Waiters were always available, helpful, and kind. Loved double crab roll, tempura roll, and the cannoli topped it off. Let us taste several wines before we ordered.

Lovely food, lovely restaurant. This is quality food, nor any sushi place from just around the corner. The dishes are yummy, and even though it's a bit pricey compared to other restaurants in the area, the experience is worth having at least once. Very nice sushi in Rome.

If you're looking for Real japanese food in Rome, this is the Place. Don't miss it! You must try the salmon sashimi and the fish carpaccio with sesame oil... With a bottle of italian chardonnay Planeta! The best of Rome! 😋😋😋

As my boyfriend and I are sushi fans, we took a long journey from the Roma city centre seeking for this place. However, it didn't live up to our expectations. Toro was great. It is the only dish I would recommend. Other sushi and sashimi were just average. Sushi rice was not sour enough as it should be. The service... More

Staying in Testaccio

Neighborhood Profile
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
