Six of us sat outside, and enjoyed beautiful Italian food and deserts. All food and drinks were served in quick time. Our waiter and waitress gave us great food and we all left feeling extremely happy. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble. We...will come back!!More

When recently staying nearby a group of friends enjoyed a night of great food and amazing service from the team at Costa D’Oro. We shared multiple entrees which were as big as mains. The octopus, prawns and local bugs were particularly nice. Many thanks Rocio,...Gene and Nuccia for making it special (and putting up with us) Will look forward to returning.More

Gave this place a try as they get great reviews and always busy when we walked past. We had a garlic focaccia a pizza and a pasta. All really nice well cooked and service was all very good. Can’t complain about a thing, but a...garlic focaccia, small pizza, a pasta and 2 cokes at $67. Expensive but good food!More

An excellent Italian restaurant. The food was exceptionally nice. My wife said the spaghetti puttanesca was the best she has ever had. I thoroughly enjoyed the scaloppini I had. Pricing was good considering the generous size of the serves. Highly recommend it as a venue.

Best pizza I have had for a long time thanks. I'm a local and have never eaten here before. But the pizza was great and the service was fast and friendly which is nice to see. Thanks again.

Without a doubt the best Italian restaurant on the gold Coast. Catering to all. Children, couples and groups. If you want an authentic Italian restaurant without leaving Australia, go to Costa Dora. Simply the best!

We visited Costa D’oro two night ago after having walked past it for a good 10 years of holidays. We just kep heading to La Porchetta but decided to give it a go. I want to start by saying I’m going back so obviously it...can’t be bad. It was just a little hit and miss and I firmly believe everyone has good and bad days. The good : The owner seated us and was warm and friendly. The room is dim and full of happy customers, the moods really nice. We can see orders being taken and being delivered pretty quickly. This is always a good sign of an accomplished and experienced restaurant. Our waiter was a backpacker - aren’t they all...lol... and he was lovely Not so good: No water offered - given to other tables but not ours No cutlery - we had to ask No SOCIAL DISTANCING - which we find really concerning. Coming from NSW we were shut out of QLD by the premier to ensure Queenslanders safety. Fair enough, but to get here and find zero adherence to a basic COVID safety rule kind of makes a mockery of her stance. I don’t like this at all. I have to check in but the restaurant is jam packed so I feel it’s a half in half out commitment The food : The menus standard really which suited us fine after all we CHOSE to eat here based on the menu. Lots of yummy stuff available so standard but varied our garlic bread was no fuss and AMAZINGLY good...like...more please! Husband had fillet steak and in his words was “incredible. The best I’ve ever had” This is no small praise - the man spends his days dreaming of good fillet steak. I had a bit and I have to agree. He insisted on well done (I cry every time) so it’s difficult for it not to be dry but the chefs here performed a miracle - moist, tender, no charring. 10/10 Diane sauce was wonderful and abundant The veggies...a bit lacking here. Potatoes, carrots broccoli. Nothing special at all and not at all like the pics 😊 I had chicken brandy and this is where my mixed feelings comes in. A fairly small portion served - half a single breast pounded thinly. Not all plump and inviting like the pic😊 It was moist and tender - very very good. The brandy sauce - very thin and runny, totally lacking in flavour. Not even a hint of brandy...nothing. And not at all like their pic 😊A half a potato, 2 slices of thick and undercooked carrot cut using a chip crinkled and a stalk of over cooked broccoli. For $32.90 I was not sold at all. But: I want to go back as my husbands meal was good and I always give places at least another 2 goes before I make my final judgement. And I really want to make this place one of our go to’s so we’ll head back at a quieter time to try and ensure some distancing and try again.More

Great food and service. Staff were very friendly and quick. The calamari Caesar salad and supreme pizza were all great. A special mention for the passionfruit martini. Highly recommend this place for families or couples. Great atmosphere
