Italian in Doha

Set in a colonial-style house, this venue is different from other eateries in the souq, with its winding staircase, large chandelier and different living rooms (dining areas) decorated with patterned wallpaper, ornate alcoves and comfy armchairs. Dishes include tagliatelle, lamb chops and lasagna. A quick bite generally turns into something longer as patrons lounge and chat in the relaxing spaces.
