Food was really yummy. Restaurant is great for families, I wouldn't say a romantic spot though but definitely good for families. I had the ravioli and it was beautiful. They didn't have gelato which I found odd for an Italian restaurant. Nonetheless great food and reasonably priced.

This was our third visit. We are from Sydney and always make this restaurant our first dinner in Surfers Paradise. The food is superb and the service excellent. The pastas are fresh filling and really flavoursome Will always return each time we visit

We loved our dinner at Costa D'oro...the staff were so friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We shared the gnocchi boscaiola and the risotto de pollo and enjoyed them both equally. Lovely spot to sit outside and observe the Gold Coast street life as the evening starts up.

The owner and the positive reviewers should be ashamed to call this Italian food. As an Italian I have visited hundreds of ITALIAN restaurants and this one is the worst. The pasta sauces are bland and pizzas looked like store bought frozen pizza. I feel sorry for the friendly servers that have sell this menu. All Italians stay away your... More
