Antica Pesa

The ‘real Italia’ culinary experience in Doha


Antica Pesa offers guests authentic Italian cuisine at Doha. The restaurant is located in the grounds beside the iconic horse sculpture at Marsa Malaz Kempinski, Qatar’s First Luxury Hotel at The Pearl-Qatar. Located on its own private island, Antica Pesa is only a ten-minute drive from West Bay’s central business district and a 25-minute drive from Hamad International Airport.

Antica Pesa offers guests beautiful views of Qanat Quartier and the Arabian Gulf, with inside or outside dining on the terraces.



The menu is created following two fundamental guidelines: reworking traditional recipes from Roman cuisine and creating dishes using local organic products for seasonal dishes, with a nod to modern trends.

Some of the scrumptious entrées from Antica Pesa’s Doha menu include Ravioli di Aragosta con Salsa di Pomodoro Semicrudo (stuffed ravioli with lobster in baby plum tomato sauce), Agnello ai Ceci (grilled lamb served with aubergine pepper & paprica and chickpeas puree in bergamotto vinegar).

Art and culinary experiences are highly connected. Following the worldwide known connection between Italy and Art, Antica Pesa in Doha follows the concept of our restaurants in both Rome and New York. This is the reason our guests will feel a strong theme of iconic artwork throughout the décor of the restaurant with pieces by artists such as Andy Warhol, De Chirico and Helmut Lang photos.

Admired for its visually stimulating, delicious and entertaining dining experience, Antica Pesa offers an experience that touches all the senses.

We are excited to open the doors of Antica Pesa to local food lovers offering ‘real Italia’ cuisine.  The artistic design features, world-class food and beautiful setting of the restaurant makes for a truly authentic and unique experience that will redefine Qatar’s Italian culinary scene.
