Been here twice. The staff are very welcoming, and very knowledgeable about what is on the menu, and take a great deal of time to explain the specilals and the a la carté/ Food is delcicious. Quiet and no overkill of staff lufking around the table, as is the case with so many other Doha eateries.

The hostess is an incredible lady, very social and welcoming (Italian lady I believe). I gotta say that her attitude combined with the delicious food made the experience absolutely fantastic.

Attentive service in a cozy atmosphere. There was a good selection and the waitress was helpful in explaining options.
