I have been around the world have tried many japanese restaurants before. This restaurant is not Japanese. It is chinese trying to be japanese. The sashimi size is wrong. The tuna is frozen. The salad came heavily sours with loads of vinegar. The nigiri is hard. The ramen is chinese as the noodle and the soup is base on chinese... More

I enjoyed foods and atmosphere, also beers from japan. Nice place to eat lots of sushi and other asian foods including dumplings, noodles, misosoup and etc.

Been to this restaurant quite a few times and it never disappoints. Great food, great atmosphere, helpful staff! The all you can eat menu is absolutely worth it. If you go on a Saturday night be sure to make reservations because it is packed!

We stopped in La Spezia on our way home, and decided to try the Japanese all you can eat rather than pasta for a change. Very good and helpful service (in English), you get to order twice from the menu, as many dishes as you want from a large selection of hot and cold dishes. After a first run through... More

Came here for a dinner with a few friends, the food is alright and has quite a good selection on the menu. However the service could be better since it was very slow and not all the food we ordered got to our table. Good enough for a night out with friends, but not the greatest place to do so.

And it's Japanese. The Euro20 All You Can Eat deal is fantastic and the best value for money. Here's a tip. Don't order everything at once. Take you time and spread it out otherwise they will serve it all in one hit.

The price of 20 euros for an all you can eat might seem a little steep but it is totally worth it at Sakura. In fact, if you are visiting Cinque Terre, you should take the opportunity to stop at La Spezia and eat at this little gem which is a 7 minute walk from the station in the center... More

I ate again in this restaurant last week after a while. Room staff all changed and these new waiters are hard-working guys but with zero experience, so they messed up several times with orders. Rice was terrible: it was warm and the proportion between fish and rice in every nigiri or maki was ridicoulous. (they even argue when one of... More

Great surprise during my last visit in La Spezia.....a great japanese restaurant. The place is easy to identify because is in your way to the railroad station from where you depart for the 5 terre
