Great food, great deserts. The restaurant serves what feels like home cooking. It's easy going and not overly pretentious. Highly recommended!

This is the best Italian restaurant I've eaten at in Doha. It has the most authentic flavors, very generous portions, the atmosphere was wonderful and the owners/staff were quite enjoyable. A great little find off the beaten path.
