“Nice Japanese Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

A very quiet and nice Japanese Restaurant in the very centre of Rome. And just for a change it has been Japanese run by the same owners for at least a couple of decades. Mrs Hiroko, the owner, made quite sure that the four of us were confortable and that food was to our pleasure. I would strongly reccomend this restaurant. Talking about price, you can't expect good quality Japanese prepared raw fish at a cheap price. Cheap sushi or sashimi are never to be advised. A special mention for the wine. A wonderful white Mueller Thurgau from Hofstatter winery on the Weinestrasse near Bolzano completed a perfect dinner

“Outstanding Japanese Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The food at this restaurant goes beyond the usual Japanese cuisine. The atmosphere is evocative and charming and the food is superb. We are told that they are so careful about the quality of their ingredients they even import the rice from Japan. We love going there for a variety of meals, including cocktail time, when you can order a delicious bento box to tide you over until dinner. But we love having dinner there, too. The menu is varied and includes a wide variety of dishes. This restaurant goes way beyond the usual sushi and tempura. A really elegant experience.

Thank you so much for your marvelous comments! Our rice is authentic Japanese rice which the seeds are imported from Japan but it is grown in northern Italy. It is the only authenti Japanese rice grown in Europe! I know that you are a great fan of our restaurant and am hoping to letting you taste other authentic Japanese dishes! Hope to see you soon!

“Delicious food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

The grilled salmon was cooked perfectly. My partner's soba with tempura was good and tasty. The food here is authentic. It's comfort food served in just nice portions. We loved the genmaicha. The staff are friendly and professional.

“perfect last night in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We spent our last night in Rome in Rokko and it was a true hit. The restaurant is pretty large and the interior very harmonious – think wooden walls with rice paper, red bowls on black lacquered wood, natural stones, … Only the music, evergreens in a Japanese blend, were not our cup of tea, but that is of course a minor detail.
You are welcomed by the chef who kindly greets you from his (super clean) kitchen and helped further by his friendly wife and staff. Our children loved the fried chicken, grilled salmon and mixed tempura of vegetables, fish and shrimps while we enjoyed our noodles and Japanese beer.
Everything looked very neat and the food tasted very fresh (you are even informed in the menu if some ingredient is only available in frozen form).
Rokko is an excellent variation in quality food experience if you are staying for several days in Rome !
