Had supper there our first night in Doha, at the recommendation of a friend. It merits a return visit, because of an excellent menu, good service, and delicious pasta and sauces. I had penne with a meat sauce and loved every bite. We sat outside on a perfect night, felt like we were dining in an outdoor cafe in Rome!... More

REALLY good food. We found this place by accident when visiting the Souq and looking for somewhere for dinner. Excellent home made style food. Lasagne excellent and the deserts are fantastic. Overall price was fair but deserts were too expensive compared to mains. I would definitely go back tho. Friendly with great service and great food !

The owner's refusal to tamper with any of the dishes or to customize an order, as she has told me, is proof of authenticity for this Italian restaurant. It really manages to capture the beauty and simplicity of an Italian restaurant, devoid of unnecessary luxury you often find in the Gulf. And it somehow fits well with the Souq Waqif... More

Who fancies Italian food that is not adapted to Arab taste will be happy with what this intimate and nice restaurant has to offer. From starter through pasta to main, and the gelato and espresso afterwards, everything was of excellent quality and taste, nicely decorated and professionally served. The waitress introduced the dishes of the day not to be found... More
