Description: 'Porcini' - named after the infamous Italian mushroom 'boletus edulis' which many Italian chefs pride themselves as being the best mushroom in the world it is evident this restaurant is the same league. The Italian chefs are world class and their passion and love for the food is clearly visible. The presentation of the dishes are imaginative, risky and daring and for this they should get the praise they deserve. The restaurant is exclusive, with the impeccably placed utensils on the table to the well-designed romantic lighting. It's a great place for partners to go as the overall ambience is romantic and loving. It's also ideal for friends and family to celebrate a special evening as we are confident that after one dines here, they shall remember it always.

Visiting the Ritz Carlton can never be without enjoying the Italian food among a luxuries ambiance and classical atmosphere. It is not the average priced restaurant that you can visit frequently still a meal can cost you like 450 QR with an appetizer, main dish and a drink too. but yet its enjoyable. I enjoyed the Lasagna. the staff are friendly and helpful and professionally trained too. you can enjoy it too within your special occasion with your loved ones. its located at the bottom floor of the hotel and furnished in real Italian ambiance.

Porcini is an Italian Restaurant within the Ritz Carlton, it reflects the high quality of this hotel. Perfect service, welcome and goodbye with a handshake, always around but not importunate. The food was excellent, quality and style of preparation and display are outstanding. The time between the courses was always right, for the dessert the waiter asked if we would like to have a longer break inbetween. If you have no reservation for dinner, go there quite early, it fills up fast! Very nice setting, some of the tables are a little bit too close together, which makes it hard to have privacy. A little bit annoying was the smoke in the restaurant after it has filled up, as there is no real smoking and non-smoking section.

You immediately notice the difference : the way the service is done immediately testifies about the quality of the establishment . Plus the decor that is quite upscale . Like the menu . This is top italian cuisine , the most upscale that we have experienced in Doha . However , if i loved the lobster salad with liquid mozarella , truffle jelly with prawns and cherry tomatoes , i found the signature main course (seabass papillotte with mixed vageatables) relatively tasteless ( excellent product very well cooked but total lack of "saveur") Excellent choice of wines . Overall a very nice experience.

This location in the Ritz Carlton is a good spot for a wonderful dinner. Our favorite there is the rissotos as they are rich and flavorful but not too rich. Beef there is also very well prepared. Prices are typical Ritz Carlton - very high - but if you can get past that you will enjoy a culinary delight. Wish they would lower the prices and then they would be busier and have a better "vibe" as sometimes when there is just one table or two it feels kind of "dead" there despite the wonderful offerings.
