Cucina is a homely Italian serving traditional food in an authentic dining room at the Marriott Marquis City Center hotel in Doha. As an award nominee in theBest Italian category from Time Out it comes with a stamp of quality and we like that the place has character. Red brick walls, tiled floors, humble furniture and street lamp-style lighting give the feeling of a family run trattoria in a small Italian square and the food enhances that feel.

Various antipasti starters can be enjoyed with a hunk of roughly torn bruschetta and tomato andolive oil is never far from your plate. Pasta is made fresh in house and comes in tantalising flavour combinations to eat before a main course of fish or steak. A selection of Italian desserts includes vanilla pannacotta, coffee semifreddo and tiramisu.

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.
