We came to the Gold Coast for our yearly holiday and came to Costa D'oro again and again was not disappointed. There was 9 of us and service was excellent. Food was DELICOUS. I am Italian and this was great. Veal Scallopini Funghi highly recommended and the Calamari rings are to die for. Thanks Again.

Costa D'oro has been serving great Italian meals for over 30 years so it must be doing something right. In the centre of Orchid Avenue , you can dine indoors or alfresco. All the classic Italian dishes are available freshly cooked with ample serving sizes for family dining. Check when they have their happy hour in the afternoon. You will... More

After walking the streets looking for a nice meal we decided on this one as the menu outside looked inviting. The service was great, the food was pretty decent too, my partner and I both had the veal scallopine. I was a little dissapointed to find that my choice of topping (prawns) cost $10 more than my partners and all... More

This one was a bit of a good and bad experience in both service and food. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and made to feel welcome which was a good start. From there the service slowly declined to the point that once our mains were cleared we were left sitting for quite some time to look at... More

Went here based on trip advisor reviews. I had brandy chicken which was beautiful but the vegetables were dried out. I'd say they had been plated and put under a heat lamp until chicken was cooked. My daughter loved her spaghetti and my husband loved his pizza. Service was average. Kids ice cream wasn't offered and we had to ask... More

My family went to this lovely restaurant in Surfers Paradise for dinner on Easter Sunday. We had a range of orders including pasta, steak and pizza all of which were excellent. The service from staff was great. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back.

Holidays are about giving yourself a break from cooking. Loved this Italian Restaurant for its delicious tasting cuisine . Flavour texture atmosphere service with a smile....although the waitress probably needs to be a bit more up to speed with what's Gluten free. Dine in or outside.
