Trattoria tradizionale italiana

Gloria

Scroll

Meet Gloria, a 70’s Capri-style & all-day long Trattoria in the middle of Shoreditch run by a crazy bunch of 85 young and passionate people from the Bel Paese and the sunny coast of Naples.

An explosive menu mixing old Italian classics, with amazing products direct from 180 small producers in Italy – plus a few fun twists from Chef Filippo. From the 10-Level Lasagna, to the Girella (ravioli filled with soft rabbit ragout and Italian polenta), to the Neapolitan Pizza heated in the gigantic Marana oven or even the Italian gelato made with love, Bronte pistacchio or Nocciola del Piemonte. Everything we do is 100% fresh and homemade.

When it comes to drinks, the bar team has created a killer cocktail menu, with the likes of Colada Me Later, a kick-ass flaming version of the classic colada, or the ultimate Italian classic Negroni topped with truffle foam. In the warm and cosy wine room, you’ll find 50 Barolo’s from the best winemakers of Piemonte like Marco Parusso or GD Vajra.

Gloria is a little corner of Italy over two floors. Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner – and brunch at the weekend. Joyful and lush by day, the place gets funky at night, with house made playlists and a cozy vibe downstairs. Bouyyaaa

Why don’t you take reservations ?



We use amazing products that come directly from amazing producers located in Italy. We only serve fresh, 100% made-in-house food. And in order to stay in the spirit of the authentic Italian trattorias we love so much, we offer a menu that’s as affordable as possible. The reality is that latecomers and cancelled reservations represent an enormous cost for restaurants. In order to be able to offer quality products at affordable prices, we have to ensure that all our seats are filled. Either we accommodate a lot of people, or we make a lot of profit.

Plus, there’s advantages to not having to reserve 2 months in advance just to eat a pizza ! To put it simply : we understand that not taking reservations can be inconvenient for our diners, but we have to weigh this consideration against the fact that we’re trying to offer high value-for-money by squeezing our margins. To make things just a little bit easier, we’ve put in place a wait-list system whereby our hostess take your name and telephone number and call you when your table is ready.
