Marriott Marquis City Center Doha’s Cucina – The Italian Kitchen unveiled its new seasonal menu ‘Classics of Italian Flavours’ designed by Chef Claudio Trovato.

Offering a taste of Italy in the heart of Doha, guests will dine into an exquisite collection of new dishes. The new additions to the menu bring a seasonal and regional twist to the Italian classics, focusing on fresh and seasonal produce – just like at home in Italy. ‘Classics of Italian Flavours’ offers an array of fresh interpretations that reflects the restaurant’s traditional approach to elevate the overall dining experience.

Claudio Trovato, the General Manager of Cucina, promised their guests that they will be treated with new tastes.

I strongly believe that as one of the world’s most beloved cuisines, the secret of Italian food lies in its local, and, most importantly, seasonal ingredients. Eating seasonally means you’re eating fresh ingredients at the height of their flavour. I would like to take our guests on an exceptional culinary journey through my home country with the new seasonal classics of Italian cuisine… I like to surprise my guests and I like treating them with unexpected new tastes each time they visit Cucina.

The new menu kicks off with a selection of appetizers for sharing and Italian favourites like Burrata, all-time Chef’s signature Eggplant Parmigiana and Rocket Salad with Cherry Tomatoes and Parmesan shavings. The Schiacciata bread served with fresh vegetables, shrimps and pesto sauce is another unique start to the meal. For the main course, guests enjoy a wide selection of Homemade Pasta, Risotto, and Succulent Meat and Seafood options as well as a variety of new Pizza selection made from scratch at the brick oven station. To name a few, for desserts, there is a Ricotta Tart served with Orange Compote and Sicilian Pistachio Gelato, Crème Brûlée, and the all-time favourite Tiramisu alla Venezia remains on the menu.

Besides this, the red brick walls, rustic furniture, tiled floors and street lamp-style lighting gives the feeling of a family-run trattoria, which makes Cucina an ideal spot for all occasions from every day dining to special celebratory meals.

Cucina – The Italian Kitchen is the ultimate haven for Italian food lovers and has been previously awarded ‘Highly recommended’ restaurant by Time Out Doha and ‘Favourite Italian restaurant’ by Fact Dining Awards. Opens daily from 12 pm until 11 pm, serving express business lunch Sunday to Thursday at 12 pm – 3 pm and will continue offering its very popular family-style Italian Brunch every Friday 12.30 pm – 4 pm.
