Anyway I found the place unique , food is ok. Service is a little bit slow yet they delivered all my request .. Definitely coming back here for a dinner... More

I love this restaurant in Souq Waqif. They really cook the original Italian cuisine, with much choice. I adore their seafood salad with suids and shrimps. I take it every time I go there. The owners are very nice and like to chat with the customers. The place is clean and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.

Being in the Souq the ambience is great, and sitting outside is always a nice experience, but I think the food lets them down a little, nothing that outstanding. Shame you can't have a glass of vino with your meal, but that's life....

A small restaurant which takes you back to the restaurants in Italy with authentic decoration, owned by a very friendly Italian couple. We have visited this place many times and each time the owner would come to us and discuss and recommend things from the special or regular menu for us to try and with a smile which made the... More

it's Italian, not touristy Italian , but real Italian, loved the service it's probably why your gonna go back again, they take care of every customer like it's the only customer they have, smiling, welcoming atmosphere, and the amazing pasta with the little bit bite I it. perfect sauce, lovely sea food, a bit pricy, but it's worth it.

This is Italia in the center of Qatar! Nice cooking, nice service and nice atmosphere. It is also possible to eat outside when it is not too hot.

Good food, nice services and beautiful atmosphere, the only major problem no wine and therefore is very difficult to eat a good Italian dish with water

The best of this Italian restaurant is its location. In an alley inside the Souq, in a quiet and cozy square, far from the noisy main street. I thought it was a romantic place for dinner and you can forgot for a moment where you are. Even though the waitress was very nice with us, the Italian owners were to... More
