The restaurant is a piece of art.. from food to the Amazing interior which will send you back mid 18th century of Italy. The food is great and the value is super. Highly recommended for all occasions.

I reviewed this restaurant just over 2 years ago. Since that time, I have probably eaten there, on average, 3-4 times a week! The two outstanding features of this restaurant are the food and the staff. The Italian food offered in this restaurant is both diverse and tasty. There is plenty to choose from in terms of appetisers, pizzas, pasta,... More

Pizza, pasta and more. Good food, but nothing very exciting. Nice decor, but never seems very busy so atmosphere lacking.

Great service, good food and even though it's a big hotel restaurant it's worth a visit. This was after a disastrous attempt to eat at lavernne in the tornado towers. Wish I had just booked here first

Not only the food is great, the service is excellent. Appetizers, pizzas, and pastas are some of the best authentic Italian dishes served in doha and the prices are reasonable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and give good recommendations.

It's a hotel restaurant in this city of stunning modern architecture but a city with no soul. So you have to go around this city accepting culture and cuisine has been flown in. But despite it not being Italy the food here is good enough to be from a good native Italian restaurant. I've had far worse in Italy. I... More
