We just had dinner at hamasei tonight and we are very satisfied. Both service and food were very good. We ordered a lot of food and we spent something absolutely reasonable. It's a place I would surely visit again when in Rome. Minor generic subjective details about the restaurant are refraining me from giving 5 stars, but it's just a... More

It was packed with the business crowd at lunch time but was able to get a seat at the sushi bar without reservation. Staff were polite and sushi made was acceptable. Ive eaten at sushi bars in Japan though... More

Sushi was acceptable but not meeting our expectations due to the fame and high reputation of this place. Very good wine list. General Prices were lower than expected.

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

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
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.
