About
Glasgow���s pizza connoisseurs know that the best place in town to come for a knock-out Italian feast is ORO ��� an iconic Glasgow institution on the Kilmarnock Road. With countless awards to his name, head chef Domenico Crolla took ORO 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, Crolla has created pizza perfection at ORO, 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.
