Ate here for lunch. Ambiance lovely, super clean restaurant. We had the full attention of the servers as lunch was pretty quiet. Servers friendly & not obtusively attentive.
Furai spritzer to start was nice start for a drink. Tasty dishes, lovely presentation, delivered to table well paced.....again; probably because it was not busy. The spring roll was amazing, served temperature hot!This was,very good.
Raw fish dishes (eg...sushi misti) was very nice. Not quite sushi grade fish as North Americans are used to, but good display of fish with tuna, salmon, sea bass and a raw shrimp. Pieces are cut a bit thick also.
Rice and tempura dishes all good.
A bit pricey as our lunch was just over 100 euros with a spritzer each before meal. This was with 3 appetizers, a salmon roll, tempura roll,seaweed salad, eel over rice and the sushi mists.
It was a lovely lunch on market day downtown. I would eat here again.....selectively; because It did add up.

Eaten here a few times. Sushi is ok, nothing special but they have some really good non-sushi dishes that are very good. The grilled eel over rice is tasty. I am a curry fiend so I particularly love the veal curry they have. The sauce is brown which throws you off but it has a wonderful curry taste. The branzino fillet al curry is delicious, it is served with a more traditional yellow creamy curry sauce and I mean, it is just swimming in the sauce (pun intended), so much that it's hard to find the fish. Probably too much curry for the average person but perfect for a curry fanatic like me. Prices are about what you'd expect for a place on the piazza next to the basilica.

definitely better than any buffet place in town. of course you will be paying a little more but no doubt quality is better. had clam miso soup, tuna Maki, shrimp rolls, and chicken teriyaki. fried rice was the best I had in Italy and clam miso soup was first for me. would definitely go back.

I LOVE this restaurant! They literally have the BEST sushi in town! I got to say that all the fish is always super fresh and everything is top quality. Keep it up!

This is one of the worst sushi restaurant I've been to in Italy. Coming from San Francisco and having been to authentic sushi restaurants in Japan, I know what good sushi is. Most important is the rice and then comes fish, nothing else. While Furai offers beautiful dining experience, I cannot say the same for the food. It was just plain bad. I had high hopes as it look more upscale and I was willing to pay for the quality. Rice was not fresh and overcooked. Fish was stale and tasteless. What more can I say about a sushi restaurant if two main ingredients were terrible.
Save your money and go somewhere else. Even buffet type sushi restaurants offer better quality sushi than this place.
