very good as japanese

it's a very nice place to taste very good sushi, tempura and the atmosphere is very particular...a lot of books close to Via Nazionale. It's a good compromise price/quality.

I live in Rome and have done most of my life. I also love sushi. This place, for me is one of, if not the best sushi in Rome for food/vibes/service/cost balance - they've got it just right. Perfect little place for a nice sushi night with friends or date or fam, been here with partner, housemates and mother and... More

This was the ideal Japanese restaurant. Great service and lovely ambience in the garden and inside where you can view a series of contemporary art exhibitions, books and other fun trinkets. The sushi was perfect very fresh and tasty. The dessert was very refreshing and delicious.

Had three lunch menues - sushi set, wakame salad & raw fish with sushi rice - and they where all excellent. The service was pleasant and fast. I recommend the nice shady patio at the back of the restaurant.

We were on our 7th day in Rome and wanted something different from pizza and pasta and wanted something within walking distance from our hotel and came here based on reviews on here. This was the most pricey Japanese meal we've had for the amount of food we got. We had to get pizza after spending $40 euros. You get... More

We visited this restaurant looking forward to a new sushi experience in Rome. Doozo is a mix between a lounge/bookshop/art gallery and restaurant. Our experience should be divided in two: first, the pleasure of finding a nice spot in Rome, were a good atmosphere could be enjoyed among books, photographs and Japanese objects. (Note: the restaurant is kid friendly). Second,... More

We were sat in the garden behind the building, which added to the ambiance. Our waitress was helpful in translating the menu and very sweet. The sake was smooth, if not understated. The sushi was small in portion and only average compared to my favorite sushi. It took more than a while to bring our tempura following the sushi, and... More

This restaurant is like a laberinth. You think it's a book art store, but if you give it a chance to be explored, then you will find a great garden in the back yard with wooden tables and candles. Two big trees make the roof and you feel like you are somewhere far from streets and high buildings. The atmosthphere... More

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
