“True. Fresh. Welcoming. Proper Italian”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Being italian and expat in Qatar I always prefer to try the local food. But when I get a little home sick I go to Lo Spaghetto. Luigi, the owner, is the nicest person ever. After a great meal we went to meet him to congratulate and he gave us 1kg of fresh home made pasta for present to tae home. The food: simply the italian traditional food cooed to perfection, with fresh ingredients. Pizza is simply the BEST in Doha. Pasta is freshly made and nicely cooked (al dente). Main courses are difficult to choose as you have a huge selection. The service is great and quick and prices are reasonable. I would recommend Lo Spaghetto to everyone wishing to have a real italian meal in Doha.

“The best pasta in town. In fact, best pasta in the country...”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is THE place to go for Italian food in Doha. Home made pasta, high quality ingredients. It is not like eating in Italy, but it is by far the best Italian restaurant in Doha. There is a lot of things I wish they had on the menu, but this is Doha, so you cant expect to get the full italian menu. I recommend pretty much everything on the menu, the penne arrabiata is especially delicious.
This is not a fancy restaurant, they do not have a license, so don't expect a glass of Chianti, but the food is of a very high quality, so if you are looking for italian food in Doha - look no further.

“Best Italian in Doha”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Proper wood oven Italian pizzas. Always packed but good service although a bit pricey. Parking nearby can be a problem as Al sadd is always busy.

“Great Food, Good Atmosphere, Amazing Relief”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

In Qatar for a month now and finally ventured out for some Italian. Parking available near the food market. Friendly staff. Beef Carpaccio, Lasagna, and Pasta Gigi, 2 Teas for about ~ 45 USD. Very good food. Portions were a good size. Not gigantically ridiculous, but definitely adequate. Easy to find using the TripAdvisor map. Definitely worth a stop if you're looking for Italian. Pizza looked awesome, btw.

“Good place for Italian lunch”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

This is a good place for a lunch, but it isn't as cheap as it maybe should be, given it's not in a mall or hotel, and so you won't get the value you get from a business lunch in W, Hilton, etc. But it is centrally located in Al Saad, and always busy at lunchtimes. This is because the food is authentic Italian and very good. Their pizzas are super-thin and crispy and there is a huge pasta menu. I wouldn't come here for an evening dinner as it lacks atmosphere, and of course isn't licensed. Parking can be difficult.
