A homegrown concept from the UAE – Lucia’s, a stunning Capri restaurant that serves exquisite Italian food, has opened its doors in Doha.

The exciting new restaurant is located in the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel and marks 7Management’s second franchise, owned by Gourmet Premium, an up-and-coming hospitality group in Qatar.

Lucia’s Doha will be able to host a total of 638 guests and boasts both indoor and outdoor seating.

The restaurant’s menu consists of sophisticated yet authentic selections that will leave diners thoroughly satiated. Guests can expect an exciting selection of Mediterranean delights including a plentiful Crudo Bar, the freshest salads and antipasti faves such as Italian Burrata with Mixed Tomatoes and Olives, Arancini Sicilliani and Bresaola.

The menu also boasts delectable pasta dishes, including Lobster Linguine, Tagliatelle Alla Bolognese Di Wagyu and Mushroom and Truffle Risotto. Uniquely, pizzas will feature on the Doha menu, with guests treated to mouth-watering creations like Pizza Al Tartufo, that combines mozzarella, parmesan cream and shaved black truffle.

In celebration of Italian cuisine, the freshest seafood and grilled meats will feature, boasting showstoppers such as a 1.2kg whole, salt-crusted sea bass that is filleted at the table and Grilled Wagyu Beef Tenderloin served with Black Pepper Sauce.

There’re further treats in store with the Lucia’s Dessert Platter and Tiramisu Classico, amongst their amazing sweets selection.
