Doozo is truly a mini Japanese Oasis in the middle of the Monti quarter. With it's unique ambiance Doozo features, books, art, wonderful music, a delightful garden and some of the city's best sushi. Service is always attentive and professional. Fish is fresh and rice is just right.

As a foreigner who likes quality and with no access to internet i am aware the difficulty in picking the good/great food from the average/terrible on the street. Luckily i stumbled upon this Japanese gem.Obviously when in italy you eat Italian, but when you need a break from pizza and pasta look no further than Doozo. Absolutely everything was top... More

We've been travelling around Italy for 6 weeks, and longed for a dining experience that wasn't pasta, pizza, breads etc. We were recommended this place by our BNB host and found it easily on Trip Advisor. It was less than 10 minutes walk from our accommodation, however keep an eye out for it as its easy to walk past. We... More

You need to know where to find Doozo otherwise you will simply walk by the place. A hidden sushi treasure disguised between books and art. A small restaurant with friendly service. Staff does not hesitate to make recommendations, which turned out to be great! Other reviews say it is pricy, which in my opinion is a comparrison to the all... More

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.

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.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
