Gloria’s restaurant review

September 17, 2019

Words George Oppenheim, Lunson Mitchenall |

Gloria, the modern Italian Trattoria has arrived in Shoreditch and our team was eager to go and check it out.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Gloria’s Trattoria has something different to offer as the first of its kind in London. The restaurant is loosely inspired by the sophistication of the Amalfi coast, and the 70’s Capri atmosphere is as much about elegance as it is the charm of off-the-cuff Italian dining.
While the light-hearted yellow exterior, flora and classical décor of the upper floor reflects the zeal of the staff, the lower floor is set to enhance London’s late night scene, with a house made playlist and closing time of 2am most evenings of the week.
When it comes to Italian food, owners Victor Lugger and Tigrane Seydoux know how to pull out all the stops. As part of the Parisian Big Mamas group, the menu offers the widely-loved Italian classics, sourced directly from 180 small producers across Italy, and a selection of dishes with a unique Gloria twist.
Everything on the menu is homemade and prepared from scratch in the restaurant kitchen, and it is safe to say everything we tried was really delicious.
We started with an Italian classic – a fresh Puglian burrata cremosa which was accompanied by a vivid green puddle of extra-virgin olive oil, and this was followed by the famous ‘10 level lasagne’ which did not disappoint. Probably the best lasagne being served in London right now.
It doesn’t stop there. The cocktail menu is something to talk about. With an offering of the timely Italian Negroni to the Colada Me Later, the extent of the menu makes it hard to choose. The high-end wine selection follows suit.
Taking its place on the streets walked by the young creatives and trendsetters of Shoreditch, Gloria perfectly matches the eclectic dining scene. Surrounded by other late-night food venues, including the infamous Flat Iron and Merchants Tavern, Gloria holds its own unique character that is sure to draw an array of people to the area.
