Been there with my wife for Dinner, ordered quite a few dishes, everything was extremely fresh and well prepared, overall a great experience, not cheap though, ended up with a 114 Euro bill, no alcohol.

Hamasei is an institution restaurant in Rome as it has existed over 35 years. It's just a normal, as it should be, a Japanese restaurant. Because of all the terrible Chinese/Japanese restaurants in town, this one stands out. Yes, the fishes are real fresh, Sushi preparation artfully, rice cooked as it should be and sake are good. Thumb up!!

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

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.
