I can't help but to bring new people almost every time I'm downtown. It is 100% mom and pops! The daily specials are so good I don't even use the menu.

Served by the owners, which are Italian, makes this small restaurant the best choice for Italian food in Doha! Great place inside Souq Waqif. The food is simply excellent and delicious! Home made pasta, by the experts, makes a world of a difference! Also they offer seafood and many other dishes. Home made desserts, just great!!!! You MUST try this... More

On this occasion I have had the pleasure of showing my wife and daughter the little gems that I have found on my many visits to doha. So after being dragged around the many floors of the city center mall and winding our way around the souq it was time to put my foot down and have dinner! Once again... More

I've been wanting to try this restaurant for quite a while and finally had the time this weekend. And I was not dissappointed. It's one of those small, cozy and hidden restaurants that serves amazing food and makes you feel at home. The owners are quite friendly and they made sure that we were having a good time. Would definitely... More

I came here with my two kids and my husband to have an ice cream in the afternoon. Well when we arrived the staff was not very welcoming, as they did not want us to choose table they insisted in placing us right at the back corner stuck next to the wall. Even though there was only 3 customers at... More

There is a myth in Doha that only the hotel restaurants are good. This isn’t true. You can find Dolce Vita in the middle of the traditional Souks, but once you go inside you find yourself in a little village in Italy. The owners are so kind, they make your mind travel to Italy. The food is amazing! It looks... More

It is a great restaurant; the best one in Souq Waqif. Delicious food and the service is amazing; at some point it seems you are in Italy for a while and the atmosphere is very comfortable inside the restaurant. The terrace is very nice even if now, due to the high temperatures, is better to be inside.

Hello Gabitul, We were astonished to hear that food was rewarmed as you said it took 20 minutes in fact we cook our food when ordered nothing is precooked this has been our policy since we opened that's why you have to wait when you order so food is cooked on the spot , anyhow, we are not looking for...
