Had lunch there on this nice outdoor shopping street. Food was fresh, well prepared and both looked and tasted perfect. The room was almost full, yet not noisy. Moderately priced & a stop to consider if you’re looking for an authentic taste of Japan!

If you're in the mood for Japanese food with/without sushi Itadaki is a good place to have a meal. Sushi was very good and fresh. The other Japanese dishes were also very good and service was attentive.

This is a very well located place in Boston. Pretty loud and crowded in the evening, it is however a good place to enjoy food and drinks both. Loved their Sushi and their service is impeccable. A little on the expensive side but worth its...More

If you like Japanese food and are visiting Boston, stop in at Itadaki for lunch or dinner. Excellent innovative sushi, fresh ingredients and a friendly atmosphere. In addition, they serve good beers and a variety saki.
