Me and my boyfriend visited this place one hour before closing time. They welcomed us with open hands, and it was no problem considering the time! We had several picks from the 8 pieces sushi menu, and the food was really great. The staff spoke good english and was really nice!
If you like sushi we would definitely recommend this place.

This restaurant specializes in serving Japanese food, a rare commodity in Lucca, Italy.

It's located at the old city of Lucca bordering Santa Maria Gate, where locals and foreigners love to hang around.

I ordered chicken terriyaki dish accompanied by "gohan" (Japanese rice), the taste of which was almost identical to the original one. Kudo to the chef.

I stumbled upon this chic Japanese restaurant by Google map. Easy to find. I'll return to this restaurant if I'm around next time.

The serving staffers are all friendly, an asset to the management.

Overall rating 4/5, worth-visiting hence.

After being loyal customers of this establishment for almost a year we had the absolute worst experience w the bartender Ricardo there. He was very blatantly rude and hateful to me once when we came in to visit and when confronted w his horrible behavior the owners laughed it off as if it were funny. We even tried to private message them but received no response. The food is just ok and comes out at awkward times so one person may complete their meal and another in the same party won't even have received food yet. Sushi rice isn't rolled properly so it falls apart before you get it to your mouth. There's too many great sushi places in the area for us to ever spend another euro here knowing frequent customers aren't valued.

Really really bad service, bugs flying around indoors. The restaurant was messy and the servers were really really bad. The food wasn't very good. Worst experience in Italy ever. Please save yourself the money and go somewhere else. Not the place to have sushi in Italy.

We decided to here at this restaurant on a whim. We did not have a reservation but they gave us a table. The Sushi was incredible, wine was excellent, service was great until we were ready to leave. Little slow with bringing the check. Other than that I would highly recommend this restaurant.
