Really enjoyed my latest visit. I haven't been since the menu has changed so had a lovely linguine with tuna, black olives and capers. Service was great, very friendly and attentive. Also one of the more reasonably priced restaurants in Doha.

Dear S2331,

Thank you for reviewing Cucina, our Italian restaurant, on Tripadvisor. It is great to see that you enjoyed yourself during your last visit, and I am happy to see your positive comments regarding our recent menu change.

We try to change our menus on a regular basis, and Chef Massi ensures we are able to offer some additional Italian specialties by creating monthly food promotions. In addition, our Antipasti counter at lunch time has also gone through some positive changes over the last few days, for which we have received some great feed-back.

The entire Cucina team is looking forward to welcome you back soon.

Best regards,
Daniel

“Very nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

There is nothing special about Cucina apart from the staff and the food. As you would expect from Marriott the restaurant is very clean and well maintained. Let the staff know what exactly you want and you will get it. A far as Italian food is concerned the chefs have an excellent understanding of what they produce and the food is consistently excellent. We used to eat here at least once a week and we were never disappointed. The staff are very friendly and well trained and they make you feel at home straightaway. For a no thrills, come as you are time, excellent food, go to Cucina. We have gone to Cucina with many guests over the last two years and not one has left disappointed. The recent changes to the menu make Cucina even better value for money!

“More attentive please.. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Ived been here several times with different occassions. Apparently my last visit was not so good experienced, upon entering the restaurant we were told that the business lunch was not available ( it was saturday) we were very disapointed but its our mistake because we didnt call them prior. Then we decided to stay. Food are very tasty. But the service has to improve. Our server was not attentive, the restaurant was not busy but i cant find our server whenever we need something. Aside from that everything is good!

“Bad staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

I went to Cucina last week before Ramada to dine with my family, the waiter is not professional and can't stay with us until we order our food and he keep moving from table to another in very bad unprofessional manner. When we finish ordering our food after waiting for long time he came and said the items are have been finished! end up to leave this place without dinning, I spoke to the person in charge to manage as the manager was not there! All what I take is " sir we are human and no problem if we did a mistake" what a silly response. If you want italian food there are so many better place in the city. I'll not be there again.
