Anyway, we entered the restaurant which was empty and rather dark. We opted for 3 tapas between the two of... read more

Took my wife for her birthday, nice menu, well prepared and staff excellent. To be honest nothing to make it stand out more than any other but certainly don't regret the visit.

Walked into a great ambience for dinner. The seating was romantic however the food was average. Ordered salmon bruschetta which was good but when it came to mains, I could not finish it. The vegetarian lasagne was too oily!! Shame, otherwise it would have been a winner. Rose wine to compliment with food was very good.

This place could be great. It is located inside Marriot Hotel, it has a great atmosphere and the service is not bad (with Doha standards) but.......... the food is not good. It is Italian but I guess there is no italian hand involved in the preparation of the food. The pasta catalog is very limited (for an italian restaurant) and... More

That's what I've been awaiting for a dining outlet with well practical and logical build as per the buffet spread and selection in terms of italian cuisine. Too good and eager the same with few more friends and colleague as well.
