Cucina Restaurant is nice.

I like cucina. An Italian restaurant that is reasonably priced and with alcohol offering. I don't like that they sat me next to children in family area last time I went. I also don't like that they close so early. I think the minimum should be midnight and not 11 PM. The portion is good.

The design is tailored to remind a characteristic italian place, with all related hot, friendly and comfortable atmosphere.

You can find some very good restaurants in Doha but almost all of them come with extortionate prices. Cucina finds that great middle ground where you can have a very good meal in a pleasant atmosphere and pay a reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious.

I have visited the restaurant just to have a light meal and relax. So have decided to visit cucina to try their menu, the ambience and the staffs were as friendly as usual plus my server Adel who was so helpful explaining the menu. Truly had a great evening with a healthy italian meal. Amazing and worth recommendable restaurant indeed.

Been there so many times for dinner. Never had a bad experience. Food is excellent, pizza is really good and carpaccio is one of the best. Very good wine selection. And staff is very welcoming and attentive. Chef does a nice gesture when he comes to the table, but it's not happening all the times.
