I have not finished yet my dinner and I'm glad I picked this place for today's dinner. My wife is also happy with the quality of food and service. I have not been here before, but I am sure I will come back whenever I will stop in Rome. The staff is absolutely well prepared, gentle and professional all the... More

A little off the beaten track so it was quite a walk to get to Doozo. The front of the store is an art gallery so you'd have to keep an eye out for the restaurant at the back. Menu was pretty extensive and food was reasonably priced and acceptable. Good respite from pasta and pizza.

We are in Italy for six weeks and needed a break from Italian food. Food was great we had sushi, tempora (the courgette flower was amazing), chicken teriyaki and udon noodles. All really good in very cool setting in back garden . Reasonable price

The restaurant/art book association is very good: the location is romantic (a sort of small secret garden just in the centre of Rome!!), the waiters are kind and the food is very good. We had miso soup, mixed tempura, udon, teriyaki chicken and some sushi. You can see from the presentation and the ingredients that this is not a ´all... More

The first thing that strikes about this place is the unusual charm of sitting in a library surrounded by colorful walls and books. Add to that fine Sushi. It was definitely one of the good dinners of my life. I remember it for the overall experience.

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

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.
