If you're not on the hunt for good sushi, you may not hav any reason to come to this neighborhood. Albeit, Genkai sushi and japanese restaurant is a bit of a schlep from the city's main attractions. But if you're really over all of the pizza and pasta and jonsing some good sushi, then traveling half way across Rome is certainly worth it. It's one of the best around town. The restaurant like most of the Japanese restaurants in Rome are run by Chinese and Korean owners. However, the sushi chefs are professionally trained in Japanese cuisine and certainly know how to make a good roll. The restaurant is big with lots of seating. Though, don't be fooled, it does get jam packed over the weekends. The seating in the back of the restaurant resembles a characteristic Japanese tea room with sliding panel doors to close you and your party in a private booth. When dining here, one must absolutely try: Sake Tataki Salmone, Genkai Special Sake (a salmon roll with cucumber, avocado and salmon eggs on top), Genkai Special Avocado and the Sake Salmone (a Spicy Salmon roll cooked in the oven). BUS: 93, 63, 38, 80 METRO: Conca d'Oro.
- Sushi: "For dessert, definitely try the gelato alla piastra con frutta (gelato thrown on the grill with fruit)."
