This was not far from the Colosseum and reasonable prices. The service was not the friendliest but it was take out so it didn't matter.

Fresh sushi with take away option. The taste was ok but nothing special. There was a choice between 30 different sushi pieces.

The sushi was ok, nothing special. ordered temaki which was huge and difficult to eat. Not a very practical sushi dish. Otherwise nothing special with the sushi. Few places to sit down and eat.

Some of the very freshest Sushi. It's a clean restaurant with good prices and the take away kit is very good.

I really really reallly liked their sushi and I also tried their udon noodles, they were fine as well, but I prefered their sushi. The staff is friendly. However, I did not like the fact that while preparing the sushi, one of the cooks took out his phone, checked it out, put it back in his pocket and continued preparing... More

You can have good sushi, makis, rolls and tempura at this place. Sushi is fresh and looks like hand made. Friendly and helpful service. Price is okay, 12 pieces of salmon maki rolls costs 7,50 euros. Easy to take away.

Well where to start. I had the occasion to pass by Daruma and I was very pleased on how the little place was displayed. The location is perfect because it stands right on Rione Monti square where at night it becomes a big attraction for the Roman nightlife. At Daruma I had some rolls which where incredibly good! However, the... More

Daruma Sushi is like a fast-food version of sushi, without the conveyor belts typical of kaiten-zushi establishments. Previously-prepared sushi is available in takeaway boxes, while a la carte sushi is available in the refrigerated cabinet. We bought two boxed sets: one nigiri and one sashimi. The sashimi set was fine, with somewhat small pieces. The nigiri set was not great,... More

Took a Walk from our hotel, hoping to find a resturant with a view of the colosseum, on our way we saw this sushi bar, and decided to grab a take out and eat on the grass out side the colosseum and it was a great idea :) But back to the food, we found the quality to be good,... More

While visiting Rome we visited this restaurant that was across the street from where we were staying. If you've had good sushi in Japan or other places, don't bother with this place. It was average tasting sushi with rice that wasn't done well for sushi.

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
