A modern restaurant with contemporary design touches

Complete with bold flavours and a soulful design scheme, Scarpetta at the newly opened luxurious resort, Waldorf Astoria in Lusail, Doha, adds a layer of personality inside the hotel.

The new restaurant has been painstakingly designed by David Collins Studio, which put its heart into reinterpreting traditional Italianate architectural details with a mid-century twist.

The design features a contemporary interpretation of Italian architecture, through use of Palladiana flooring, coloured marbles, and travertine columns influenced by the brand’s Italian cuisine. The venue boasts an effortlessly chic dinner setting that brings LDV’s mission of La Dolce Vita to life with its indoor and al fresco dining venues, an extensive cigar lounge, private dining and a walk-in humidor.

The philosophy of Scarpetta’s kitchen, born in New York City in 2008, is to create bold flavours by amplifying the essence of seasonal ingredients. Their signature dishes, primarily their delectable pastas are prepared in-house daily using only the best, locally sourced ingredients. Scarpetta’s most popular Spaghetti Tomato & Basil is nothing short of classic simplicity in both taste and preparation. The Italian hotspot also offers a variety of mouthwatering starters and signature mocktails which are not to miss.

Scarpetta has grown to receive prominence for its delicious food and drinks, stylish décor, and affluent clientele that attracts the interest of leading media outlets throughout the world.
