Head straight for the outdoor terrace for a bit of la dolce vita. The setting is handsome yet relaxed. While people rave about the pizzas and pasta, it's the panna cotta that gets me everytime. Finally tried the brunch today. They call it 'broonch' -- sounds odd but is an overall fun experience. Oh and the server Voin gets the highest praise for friendly, efficient service that's hard to come by in the city.

Thank BoulanGerry

La Spiga is, by far, the best Italian restaurant in Doha in all aspects. The venue is very contemporary and suits young and old generations alike. It has a very lively atmosphere, unlike other Italian restaurants. The décor is very elegant and stylish. The food quality is outstanding and makes us feel as if we are eating in Italy. The menu is diversified with different food choices and allows having a different meal every day. The service is top notch. The waiters are very friendly and professional, and cater for every need that a customer has. Special compliment goes out to Denis and Voin for their caring behavior, dedicated attention, and valuable advice on choice of food. We have been regular customers since the opening, and we highly recommend La Spiga to all Italian food lovers.

I had many dinners in La Spiga during the year I was in Doha - always top-notch. Certainly try to make reservations if you know you will be going, but even if you don't, just show up and spend some time at the "brick oven" / small bar and wait until something opens up. They will take care of you with freshly baked bread and snacks. When you do sit down for the real meal, it is all spectacular. Very fresh ingredients; so much so that at times they don't have an item or two when the quality is not up to snuff - much better than trying to serve sub-par items. When the weather cooperates, eating outside on their patio is quite nice, and a little more quiet than inside the restaurant if you are looking for that.
