Love it

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.

The Dolce Vita came as a wonderful surprise in the Souq Waqif where the food is not always at its best, Nicely secluded on a little shaded piazza with trees, the Dolce Vita is away from the noise and agiitation of the Souq's main street. The italian food served is genuine and simple, but very good and reasonably priced. Service... More

The food here was undoubtedly very delicious. The only dislike was about the dark-colored waitress. She was weirdly rude. She made our visit a little less happy about the restaurant. The sitting space here is a bit congested. The price is at the high end, but the food quality is very good.

Authentic: Yes. This is the main character of this restaurant that gives you the comfort as soon you step in. The staff look very educated in term of welcoming and advising you about the food: they simply care as if they own the place which you rarely find in town. It gives you the feeling of being in a European... More

Hands down the most authentic Italian restaurant in Qatar. The taste of every single dish on the menu is unique. From the tiger shrimp special linguine to the 4 cheese gnocchi. The owners is so attentive and she is so adorable. I believe that the restaurants key success factor is the fact that they always get fresh ingredients which makes... More

A very wonderful Italian staff that serves authentic Italian cuisine. Everything tastes and looks freshly made and if you love authentic Italian food, you'll be very impressed. Additionally, the atmosphere and decour is very pleasant and the restaurant is located in a more private part of the market (behind the Souq's Art Center). The entrees were anywhere from 60 to...
