Hamasei is the best Japanese restaurant in Rome! There are a lot of amazing particular dishes. The restaurant has two private rooms for romantic or business lunch or dinner! Great place!

Kind of pricy but we left satisfied. The octopus appetizer was amazing. My friends and tempura shrimp and alittle rice dish which the loved. I stuck with sashimi and traditional sushi. Well worth the tourist prices.

Japanese staff and Japanese tourists actually eating there. I'd give 4.5 because there was a slight mix up with some of the vegetable makis containing gluten but this was FIXED MID ORDER so NO GLUTEN was served to me and I was offered GOOD ALTERNATIVES. They had gluten free soya sauce, Apart from the usual selection of Makis and Tamago... More

We went for a lunch with friends and family. Although was a little bit late (1400) they accepted us and we didn't have any problem on the orders. Good quality and tasty sushi. Price is fare considering the location. It might be nice place for a dinner date.

A real Japanese experience: the staff, the food, the atmosphere. The service is perfect, the courses delicious and the all experience exquisite. A bit pricey, but it's totally worth it. I've never been treated this well in a restaurant before.

This restaurant looks fabulous looking in. Chic, contemporary etc. however we were shown to a lost corner of a different part of the restaurant. Then they claimed they couldn't do the Japanese hot pot that I had specifically gone there for . They hadn't mentioned this when booking. The Japanese waiter was lovely but the other Indian waiters were moody,... 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.
