The menu in the restaurant is quite short, but all the dishes they cook, they cook very good. Very good offers for the lunch. Fish is always fresh. Desert - green tiramisu broke my heart.

Milano has a lot of fresh fish. But in this place the Japanese chefs make something very special out of it. Great sushi, great desert. Make sure you try the crude wasabi.

We have been living in Milan for 4 weeks, and we kept finding all you can eat sushi restaurants. Some were actually OK, but I was craving some really sushi and sashimi. This place fit the bill. Service was great; half the staff spoke some English. Sashimi was some of the best I've ever had outside of tokyo.

Great sushi and wine. A little bit expensive. The restaurant is small and very noisy but we will come back.

The food was great. I got a lunch sushi and sashimi platter for 20 euros and some Hojicha tea. Both were amazing. I have been to numerous Japanese restaurants, I am a big fan of Japanese culinary arts, and really there were only good things to say there. The fish is very fresh and of good quality. The sushi are... More

capesante sashimi was new to me and I still dream about it, their astice gratinato is also very very good and so is everything else I tried, loved it, went twice this summer and am going to treat myself to its luscious food soon enough!

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
