Members of the group, who were charged with "belonging to a terrorist cell," were sentenced to between two and 15 years, the official SPA news agency said.
The prosecutor's office had sought the death penalty for all 11, and a representative of the office said it would appeal the verdicts.
Saudi courts last June began trying dozens of people accused on involvement in deadly attacks between 2003 and 2006 after authorities launched an all-out campaign to eradicate Al-Qaeda in the country.
