Came here for first time with friends, had amazing mussel starters. We all opted for the same starter and just as well as we wouldn't have been sharing! For mains we shared pizza and pasta which again where full of flavour.

First time we have visited the restaurant under its new guise. Welcomed by a professional staff who looked after us throughout. We shared a focaccia to start which was piping hot and delicious. Mrs had the spaghetti bolognaise and I had the Italian style carbonara which was superb. Coffee to follow and with the new name and excellent service we... More

In the 80s, gold was the epitome of success, class and elegance. Everything was gold, and, apparently, it was the hight of sophistication. Societal taste migrates, resulting in the desires of the past become cringeworthy in the present. Other than the music, which has developed a strange cult status among its most loyal supporters, almost nothing from the 80s has... More

What a sad little review. Glancing at a few of your other reviews, your agenda is very clear. I cant believe you wasted your own time writing such a biased review. Shame on you. More

I love this restaurant. Food is delicious, service impeccable, really does have a local feel to it, we are semi-regular and enjoy the chat you can always have with waiting staff. I therefore only have two minor niggles - the toilets can be freezing cold and ...the price of soft drinks. That's where I have noticed the huge increase since... More

This restaurant is quickly becoming my favourite Italian. I had a pizza and it was too die for. My wife had the spaghetti meatballs and really enjoyed it, although she did mention it needed more sauce. The staff are all very attentive and the decor is very well thought through. I must if your eating out in Glasgow.

Visited here a few days ago, after wanting to visit for a long time. New decor looked great, service was good and the menu has plenty of options. Waiting staff were great also well dressed and professional. Management staff were also present that evening would be nice to see them crack a smile also for their customers. Food on the... More

First visit under new name and belated Mothers Day lunch. Decor, staff and food very good. However when my daughter asked to replace chicken with prawns in a pasta dish the additional charge was £5 for 6 prawns!! Thought this was a bit overpriced and may influence whether we return to what was a favourite restaurant.

thank you for writing a review for ORO. I can appreciate your concern at being charged extra for a substitution to a dish but I hope you will appreciate the difference in cost from chicken to King Prawns. We don't use the cheaper baby prawns, just the king size variety and the difference in price is justifiable. We offer two... More

Belle Napoli was one of my favourite restaurant's south side of the city and Saturday 8th April was my first visit since it was rebranded as Oro.

Dear guest, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Its unfortunate that what was once one of your favourite restaurants has been spoiled by Saturday nights experience causing you to write a negative review. if I may say, as a regular customer there are other ways of making a point other than pulling the trigger on Tripadvisor....

Description
Glasgow���s pizza connoisseurs know that the best place in town to come for a knock-out Italian feast is Bella Napoli ��� an iconic Glasgow institution on the Kilmarnock Road. With countless awards to his name, head chef Domenico Crollo took Bella Napoli over from his father in 2005, and the art of Italian cookery is in his blood. Flying to Italy to source the best flour, mozzarella and Italian wines, Crollo has created pizza perfection at Bella Napoli, and this vibrant restaurant is a must for any serious lover of great Italian food. Spread out over three levels, this welcoming venue serves everything from espressos and sandwiches to pasta, risotto, burgers, steaks and outstanding homemade puddings.
