In short my wife and eye fell in love with this place, the atmosphere was amazing. we have ordered two of there large pizzas and I must admit taste was excellent (one of the best if not the best in Doha I have tried). we also had three glasses each of their Italian wine, again the wine was remarkable. After all that and what seemed to be our favorite spot in Doha, the bill came and without a doubt I paid my bill and added a nice tip to the waiter. Then while looking into the bill I noticed that they have added an extra glass of wine (total 7 instead of 6). fare enough I said this is a honest mistake as there were an incident that I ordered a glass of wine from 1 waiter and it didn't arrive so I have reminded another waiter and he might added a new order. The problem I faced is how rude the staff of this place handled the situation. I started with telling the waiter that the bill had 7 glasses of wine and I ordered only 6, he insisted that I ordered 7, and after a stupid discussion about a stupid extra glass of wine, another waiter came and started arguing about me having 7 glasses I ended the discussion and what started to be a seen after a third waiter came and asked me the same question by saying "listen me and my wife had a total of six glasses so if you want to charge me for 7 then fine, give my bill as I am in hurry and I need to go". The waiter then changed the bill but refused to refund the difference since I paid with visa card, he didn't even make any effort to try to satisfy us, after the embarrassment he caused us as a result of the restaurant mistake.

In short, I realized that this is the norm around here, hotels or not hotels, the service is extremely poor and they do ruin your evening. After all what happened I will definitely not go again to a place where they make you feel not important.

In conclusion, costumer is always right is just a sentence.

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.
