O Sole Mio is regarded as one of the best Italian restaurants in Muscat. It’s located in Jawaharat Complex near the Intercontinental Hotel in Shatti. It was closed down for quite a while for renovations and opened back up for business a little over 2 weeks ago. We’ve enjoyed this restaurant quite a few times and it has a special place in our memories as it’s the restaurant I took my love to on the night that I proposed to her a little over 4 years ago. When we went out recently with some close friends, we decided to eat there to see how it is since the renovations.
Penne Alfredo (4.9 OR)
2 of us (the men) tried the Lasagne al Forno (4.5 OR) which I thought was excellent. My friend thought it was extremely hot (not spicy-hot but fresh-out-of-the-oven-piping-hot) but that’s what I loved about it. I really enjoyed this dish!
The Blueberry Cheesecake (3 OR) was SO good and it looked like our guests really enjoyed their Cream Brulee (3 OR) as well which we enjoyed with our coffees.
I didn’t take a lot of photos as “O Sole Mio” is one of those restaurants that seems too upscale for shy old me to pull out my camera and start snapping away! I did want to put up a pic to give you some quick idea of what the interior is like now. Here’s a pic of our friends, Don and Debi who joined us for dinner:
Have any of you been to O Sole Mio since it was renovated?! Is so, what do you think? We really enjoyed our night out there and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a nice (licensed!) Italian restaurant in Muscat. Make sure to make reservations if you do go as this place is quite busy most nights. (Tel: +968-2460-1343)
