Everything in this place is average. The food & the service. Not impressive being a Marriott outlet. Not recommended.

I go to this place often when in Doha. They have a lovely little set up, tho the lack of windows isn't liked by some of my friends. The staff are friendly and helpful and have that nice balance of being present but not intrusive. When I go there for lunch and to waste a few hours, they leave me... More

I went to cucina with my work colleagues several times for lunch. I like their appetizer selections all very delicious. Their pastas are not to be missed! I think it is perfect for after work lunch gathering or even dinner. Italian cuisine lovers, cucina is a must try restaurant :)

Everyone should have their local Italian and Cucina fits the bill brilliantly for us. Excellent friendly service combined with really tasty food (carbonara and crab ravioli are favourites) and good value house grape in an "authentic" Italian village setting means we visit whenever we are in town. There are private areas but sitting in the more open areas of the... More

we ordered pizzas and they were not good. The price is not reflected in the quality of the food. Cucina did not live up to our expectations,

We always receive a warm welcome by the hostesses at La Cucina. The venue design and decoration makes you feel in a truly Mediterranean restaurant. The verandah overlooking several landscape pictures to the outside of the restaurant is a nice touch. Also at the back of the restaurant you can find several private areas as well as the bar. But...
