It has been moved to Odel and there were only 5 pizza in the menu. I felt like eating a bulls eye egg with the melted cheese floating in the middle of the pizza. Seems the place has lost its touch after moving. I don't recommend this as there are many other fine Italian restaurants in Town

We came just in time for closing and the guys were nice enough to still let us order .. and not go home hungry.... More

Oro has the best pizzas in town. The vesuvio is my go to when I crave a pizza. What's most impressive is their deserts. I have tried every single one and I cannot pick a favorite. You will leave this place feeling full and yet wanting more. The staff is quite friendly and very helpful. The place is cozy and... More

The pizza is one of the best i've tasted in Colombo. It is run by a couple. A thicker layer of cheese and add more meat will surely bring value for money.

The toppings are simply amazing and the environment and ambience is just right for a pizzeria. The taste and service is excellent and the pizza is quite large and thin so you can eat alot. The value of money is there and it's definitely worth giving a try if the craving for pizza arises.

Definitely the best pizza in town, no doubt about it (and all my friends here in Colombo agree). Perfect amount of topping (not too oily either), amazing base which always has the right amount of black, wood-fired edge to it. Small menu but who cares when pizza is so good, I am not going to order anything else anyway! I... More
