Eating out in Doha is always exciting because new restaurants are popping up almost weekly. The Al Waab area now has a brand-new Italian spot that’s sleek and serves regional cuisine with a modern twist.
Primavera in Al Aziziyah Boutique Hotel offers traditional and signature dishes, featuring staples like gnocchi and cannoli. Pizzas are served directly from a gold-tiled oven and seasonal ingredients are sourced straight from Italy.
The talented Italian chef Nikolas di Virgilio is spearheading the culinary operations of the restaurant.
With its Italian estate-style interiors, the venue has the Romanesque ambience of a mansion from another era.
The hand-painted walls and ceiling, depicting nature scenes in a pastel colored palette, complements the décor. There are crystal chandeliers that brighten up the space and enhance the natural light that shines through five windows, all draped with luxurious curtains.
And when you’re ready to order, expect elegant, gold-rimmed dinnerware with silver cutlery and fresh red rose bouquets.
Amid all the wonderful new restaurant openings, it’s nice to have a venue like this in that side of town.
