“Old school Italian”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Nice though all the fine dining Italian restaurants are in the Intercon and the Shangri La, sometimes you can't beat cheesy decor, a slightly seedy piano player, waiters with outlandishly large pepper grinders and well cooked traditional Italian food.

Very fond of O Sole Mio

“Best Italian food in Muscat”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

By far my favourite resturant in muscat. It has very authentic Italian food like no other place, and the chef is just superb!

“Oldie but goodie”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The O Sole Mio has been around for years, and in many respects one knows it. The decor although correct is getting alittle tired in the face of all the comeptition, but they still score when it comes to delivering the food. Still excellent quality and the price is reasonable too.

“Need to choose the right dish”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

I ordered one of the pasta dishes, and found it quite bland and lacking in flavour. I'm sure the other dishes are quite different, I've normally found that its really improtant to choose the right dish at an Italian restaurant because some of them are quite delicious compared to the others. The staff are friendly and maybe its best to ask them about the popular dishes.
