We visited this restaurant 3 times-this last time for my BD. They made my night really special. They chose a great table location, tied balloons above the table and sang a South African song as well as Arabic and presented me a small complimentary cake n a beautifully decorated plate.
Waiters and waitresses are always pleasant and friendly and helpful. Menu is very reasonably priced, lovely ambience and food tastes good--we have had the linguini, various pizzas and risotto. Very enjoyable. Suitable for single diners, romantic couples, friends nights out and families.
Only downside--parking--because everyone uses valet parking and so it is very crowded.

Dear JenQatar,

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback about your birthday visit to Cucina. It means a lot to us that you enjoyed the ambience, food, service (and singing!) and were willing to share that with the TripAdvisor community. I was disappointed to hear about the inconvenience regarding the valet service and have passed on your feedback to our Front Office Manager to discuss with the team for improvement.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Cucina.

Regards,
Robert

Nice decor in this restaurant however we are a bit disappointed with the food that they serve. Perhaps we were expecting great food after reading the reviews on trip advisor, the food was unfortunately just average. There are better italian restaurants in Doha than Cucina.

Just happened upon this little gem while looking for a lunch time meal. It was awesome. Quaint atmosphere and friendly staff. Found the lunch menu to be great value for money. Went back a second time for the pizza - YUM YUM!

This place has great pizzas! The best part is, they serve alcohol in the morning and afternoon, and they have a smoking and non-smoking section. The rates are almost reasonable, and the service is great!
