Description: 'Porcini' - named after the infamous Italian mushroom 'boletus edulis' which many Italian chefs pride themselves as being the best mushroom in the world it is evident this restaurant is the same league. The Italian chefs are world class and their passion and love for the food is clearly visible. The presentation of the dishes are imaginative, risky and daring and for this they should get the praise they deserve. The restaurant is exclusive, with the impeccably placed utensils on the table to the well-designed romantic lighting. It's a great place for partners to go as the overall ambience is romantic and loving. It's also ideal for friends and family to celebrate a special evening as we are confident that after one dines here, they shall remember it always.

This location in the Ritz Carlton is a good spot for a wonderful dinner. Our favorite there is the rissotos as they are rich and flavorful but not too rich. Beef there is also very well prepared. Prices are typical Ritz Carlton - very high - but if you can get past that you will enjoy a culinary delight. Wish they would lower the prices and then they would be busier and have a better "vibe" as sometimes when there is just one table or two it feels kind of "dead" there despite the wonderful offerings.

My dinner companion and I could not find fault with our meal at Porcini. Delicious food, perfectly presented by knowledgable waiters in elegant surroundings. The wine list is extensive also. The breads and dips were absolutely mouth-watering. Pricey but worth it!

Great service and good food. The atmosphe was very pleasant and the waiters attentive but not intrusive. All our party enjoyed their food choice, although we only had main courses. The appetiser was a nice extra and the bread is wonderful.

We celebrated our silver wedding anniversary at Porcini and this was also our first visit - it will not be our last! The best Italian food we've had in Qatar (especially the homemade pastas), great welcoming atmosphere, attentive and friendly staff. Although we had not even booked ahead (nothing like spontaneity even after 25 years!) and just happened to mention in passing about our anniversary a fabulous chocolate gateaux arrived at the table with a sparkler (more of a flame thrower actually!). Thank you to everyone at Porcini - you made it a very special evening for us. We (and our friends) will be returning soon...
