Nice place, well arranged. Good music. Excellent lighting. Service professional. Intimate atmosphere. Food of first quality, I suggest the sashimi salad, but everything we ordered was really fresh and tasty. I'm not at first sushi experience.... Price is right for the value of what offered.

After a full week of Italian food I fancied a change and we went to this restaurant. I was pleased apart from the fact that I only figured out after receiving one dish that the English translation on the menu was "ostrich" but should have been "oyster". Unfortunate considering that I don't like seafood.

We had a great dinner, mainly sushi and sashimi. The chef is a very talented and nice woman and the staff attentive and smiling. Awesome quality compared to Milan.

I travel the world and I love diverse food but as an Italian I have always been a bit frustrated by the lack of diversity in my country!

We went to Sho Ann with high expectations due to positive comments we've had from Friends that visited this restaurant last year. For starters, once sat at the table we were informed that if we wanted to order any tempuras, noodles or hot dishes we had had to book in advance. The best part is that when I booked the... More

This restaurant used to be the only Japanese in southern Italy and it really worked its way through scrumptious Italian cuisine. Nevertheless, portions decreased over time as prices increased excessively. The location has ambience and is beautiful, but I hope they will understand that sushi is not elitarian food anymore in Italy. Paradoxically it is more worth driving to Lecce... More

I have been here twice and both times have not been disappointed. The fish is well prepared, the sushi and sashimi super fresh, and the stir fried beef was amazing! Try also the fried prawn pocket thing. Good service. Book to avoid disappointment as it is a popular place to be seen
