This is about at the limit of possible walk from La Cigale and is very good. Great Italian menu. I had salmon and my colleagues had seafood pizzas which were an excellent size. There is no alcohol license and the range of drinks could be...More

I haven't been to Lo Spaghetto since they moved to the new location, and it is wonderful! Very nice setting and courtyard. I definitely want to go back to sit outside when the weather is better.

Since my last review of Lo Spaghetto I have been back several times, and the restaurant has moved to a new location. The location may have changed, but the quality of the food has not. This is the bset Italian restaurant in Doha. Full stop.

The Lasagne was top-class. The rest of the menu also excited me so many more visits are needed. In cooler weather the outside seating area is bliss. The new location mear La Cigale hotel is quiet and peacefull. A great place for family and friends....More

New place, same quality, this restaurant is the best choice in Doha (out of International Hotels). Unfortunately you can't have a good wine out of international hotels in Doha and let's agree, so good dishes will be perfect if served with a nice wine. Very...More

I never liked the food at the original Lo Spaghetti at Al Sadd and despite the lovely setting/garden at the new place the good is just as poor. I had a salad and spaghetti marinara... seafood was old, minuscule and over cooked....actual spaghetti tasted like...More

Questions & Answers
A total disaster. Never been this disappointed with any restaurant in Doha. We got there around 1.15pm, Six or seven waitresses just standing there staring at the four or five tables. Very awkward. I asked for a little touch of butter for my soup (pumpkin). Waitress says no. I tell her to go get the butter. Instead, the manager comes, takes a little plate and heads back to the kitchen. Few seconds later she's back empty handed and tells me "chef doesn't serve butter". My response is very quick, cancel my order but keep my fiends' orders. She goes and comes back again only to double check and confirm my friends aren't cancelling their food. That's when I lost it and asked for the bill. She keeps begging me to give her my mobile number! She must have asked twenty times! I kept saying no! I can understand a chef having a strong stand on certain things, but not a touch of butter for a pumpkin soup. It was plain rude and impolite. I encourage everyone who goes there to ask for butter ;) 0/10 QR 0
