Great tekka maki and sashimi. Well cooked tempura and miso soup, though the soup was a really small bowl.
I've been in Japan and though Yagura's is not a real japanese cuisine it is very similar and tasty.
You can order from the list or have a menu at € 22,00= and you need to add the prices for service, beverages and desserts if you order it.
We have choosen to order from the list but next time we'll try the complete menu.
No outside table and rooms are not so typical but tables are very well dressed in a true japanese style.
Good and polite service.
My rate is 4/5 that I really hope to confirm with another dinner.

I've been a regular guest to the restaurant whenever i get the chance to visit florence and i can't never get bored of it. Food is excellent quality and fresh with a big range of variety and the price is super reasonable especially the deal they have during the week of all you can eat.
The ambience is really nice a quiet, it gets really busy during the weekend therefore it is better to book in advance.
The staff is extremely professional and welcoming especially for Florence where usually the restaurant staff is generally poor in service and attitude.
anyways I definitely recommend this restaurant to every sushi lover!

Tempura mista was very good but the rest was averadge. Eating with smoking smells was disgusting. The service was awfull but the worst was when we wanted one menue and order the rest of the meal per-dish and it wasn't possible!!!

We were talked into taking the E20 all-you-can eat sushi at this cute restaurant in the San Frediano district. The atmosphere was quite nice and there is a covered room that they call the patio where those who wished to could smoke. Everything looked new and clean, including the washrooms.
Most of the menu is according to the all inclusive formula, all except for sashimi and drinks basically. We arrived early and hungry on a Tuesday night. The wait staff seemed particularly disorganized and service was slow though we were the only patrons to start. The restaurant soon filled up totally. There were 2 vegetarians in the party and one had eaten there before when the owner was present. She said there were lots of vegetarian options but when we asked, there were very few. To their credit, they tried their best but the maki rolls all tasted the same, whether oshinko, cucumber or avocado rolls. Sushi came in no particular order and with no regard to which person had ordered what. All of the vegetarian options came first, leaving the non-vegetarians to either share those or starve. Tempura came at the end when nobody was hungry any more. We got things we didn't order and almost didn't get what we did order. The catch is that you have to eat everything you order or they charge extra, so having heavy dishes at the end was particularly disruptive. The sushi rice was too wet and a little heavy. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant for good sushi.

We were the first guest that night and found it hard to judge if it was a good or bad place to eat. We ordered a few maki rolls some tempura and yaki udon for our son. The service was quick and the food fantastic. We had been eating Tuscan food for 10 days and needed something raw and fresh. If you like Unagi make sure to order the Dragon Roll. The sashimi was good but the slices of fish were too thin. The soft shell crab tempura was the best I ever had. Before we left the restaurant it was filled with locals.
