Hi quality ingredients, prepared well and with great service. Obviously the prices is higher than most "sushi" places in Rome, but it is authentic and you get what you pay for. I had a wonderful, lightly fried tofu that had no resemblance to the kind you find in stores. The tempura was light and crispy. Very good. Worth making a... More

We regularly eat Japanese and this restaurant didn't disappoint. Excellent quality with great friendly service. Edamame serve wasn't as generous as i'd like and sashimi quite delicate but excellent quality. Overall, happy, would go again and recommend to others.

After more than a week of only Italian fare we really had enough and wanted something else for a change. Doozo happened to be just right next to our apartment and after reading the positive reviews, we decided to give it a go. I had to admit, that we had some doubts, as a few reviewers were complaining about the... More

Fabulous food, absolutely delicious, many of the dishes created by the Japanese female chef in house on the premises. They have a nice garden but we didn't try it in this hot Rome summer, preferring the air-conditioned interior. Good service, really quite professional. There is a good bookshop on the premises and we have always found something to tempt us.... More

Acoompanied by a visitor from Japan, we can confirm that the sushi is up to standard matching expectations. Reasonably priced too, bearing in mind that we are in Rome at the height of the tourist season. If you plan to eat here the secluded garden is a wonderful place to eat. Be sure to book a table as the restaurant... More

I found this place by looking on TripAdvisor. I was very pleased with the atmosphere, the food itself, and the service. We ordered the seaweed salad. This was very good. They use their own homemade sauce. We then ate the Doozo roll and tuna roll. Both were very good. We then had tofu with vegetables. Also tasty. Then we had... More

Service was excellent as well as everything else we had. Not a huge selection of fish but the salmon, tuna, sea bass and white fish were tasty. Highly recommended for a welcome break from high calorie Italian food.

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.

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.
