3 diferent locals have taken me here. Sure, Hamasei advertises in all touristed piazzas, but it isn't a tourist trap. The food is authentic, tasty and perfectly executed. The service staff is friendly and attentive. Hamasei is worth a stop anytime you crave something light than the amazing pizza, pasta and gelato on offer in this great city.

Hamasei is a top class Japanese restaurant situated in one of our favorite districts in Rome. The place is packed with JAPANESE locals that is always a good sign. The sashimi plate is delicious. Fish is perfectly prepared and very fresh. Be sure to leave space for dessert !

It is a joke to eat sushi in a country where the cuisine is one of the most delicate in the world. It is a joke to be exactly two steps away to the most touristic Spanish stairs. No it is not true. It is not a joke. Hamasei is a Japanese restaurant the way we know the Japanese cuisine... More

Once Of the most Amazing Japanese Restaurant in the center of Rome in Italy. You don't eat only sushi or tempura but all the Japanese food you want. Cooked and not cooked food. It's a place where you can choose where to eat. You can eat in private room or on the restaurant counter around the entrance, or on the... More

This place should be a must go for anyone who enjoys sushi rolls! The entire place is suggestive, the staff pretty nice and the food quick to arrive and so good. I'd definitely go back.

It deserves a consistency prize as it always delivers excellence in every type of plates being prepared. My all time favourite is "sashimi morikomi", a well balanced sashimi across different types of fishes integrated with raw shrimps and calamari. Also a No Miss is the Tempura. This is probably one of the best preparation (outside Japan) that I have ever... More

If you are around Piazza di Spagna and wanna get a good sushi this is the place. You can get a menu for just 15 euro or you can get an a la carte item (a little bit pricey in my view). Service is good but the place is crowded (generally a good sign indeed).

In general no changes over the years is positive, but here really nothing changes, not the furniture, not the people, not the menu, that is only getting more expensive over time and with portions that are getting smaller. The quality is always at the top, but they should try with some innovation and a bit more friendliness.

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood 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 centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, 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.
