After living in Doha for over a year, it was about time to try Le Dolce Vita - it had come recommended by others as some of the best Italian they had tasted. The position of the restaurant being hidden away is cute; but signage would be helpful. My friend and I ordered a starter to share and separate mains. They came in a timely manner by a waitress that could have been a little friendlier. The starter was ok, the accompanying salad was fresh and crisp. The mains were disappointing - a pasta dish and a risotto dish. Both lack a full body flavour to expect from a pasta and risotto dish.
I had the risotto dish which required seasoning or even a knob of butter to bring some of the 'risotto' qualities to the dish - I ended up stealing some mushrooms from my friends pasta main!
I have had much, much better in Doha, and in obscure places in other countries.
