WELCOME ORO one of the MELIUS World's 100 Best Italian Restaurants!
Oro Restaurant is by now an institution in Glasgow, the temple of authentic Italian cuisine directed by Domenico Crolla, talented restaurateur, creative food artist, Pizza Master chef and exceptional hospitality consultant-at-large.
Domenico took Oro over from his father, when it was still called Bella Napoli, a hackneyed name largely used by Italian migrants, often with no culinary background, when opened their restaurants around the world.
Domenico changed it in Oro (gold), and became the symbol of a change of mentality. Gold are also the standards at Oro. The menu has Italian classics as well as creative dishes but always respectful of the Italian traditions. In the menu some dishes have the names and the descriptions left by Domenico’s father, a tribute to the heritage of Italian migrants, but the execution and the flavour are truly authentic.
Oro’s delightful cuisine is matched by a smart wine list with a wide selection of Italian wines from all the regions and price range. The service is attentive, warm but not invasive, as in some Italian eateries.
The interior décor of the restaurant is futuristic with a prevalence of gold colours and marble. Gold is also the stunning pizza oven that is the centre of the restaurant. Domenico’s pizza are legendary and well deserve the gold, not only of the oven.
