Opened just this year, this sprawling restaurant is massive and yet surprisingly intimate. The staff, although still finding their feet, are attentive, and the food is delicious if perhaps occasionally too big for its britches. For the most part they stick to delectable Italian basics: tasty pastas and stunning pizzas, topped with fresh cheese. But they’ve also got some seriously hearty salads that would be a great option as a meal on their own, as well as some innovative dishes involving salmon. We also love how the menu includes beverage suggestions to complement the food – the little extras are what give Cucina the edge.

After eating at Cucina's (i had not read this review), i was left less impressed that this review above mentions. I paid QAR65 for the Lasagna (not the review mentioned QAR45!), and at QAR45 per glass of wine, i felt the place is a little overpriced for what you get. I think you can find better in Doha.

We tried Cucina last week and we love the place.
They have a fabulous decor, wine barrels, a beautiful display cabinet with glasses and empty bottles of wine and the giant wheels of parmesan cheese.

We were received in the entrance for a friendly and very attentive receptionist from Italy who immediately show our table.

For our first experience we decide to try Margherita Pizza and 4 Cheese pitzza, and it was so delicious, perfect, just like you expect from a Italian Restaurant, we also love the wine options.

We will try Cucina again soon but for this time we wanna try some pasta.

Thanks for this very good restaurant, we felt like we were in a little peace of Italy in Doha.
