Gloria

OPENED 273 DAYS AGO

French restaurant group Big Mamma open their first London location, named Gloria.

With six Italian trattorias dotted across Paris and a massive food hall under their name, Big Mamma is a pretty big deal in the city of love. Here in London, they’ll be bringing the same charm and hefty dose of parmesan to a grand-looking dining room in Shoreditch.

The Spot:

Just like the sought-after spots across the channel, restaurateurs Victor Lugger and Tigrane Seydoux aim to transport you straight to Italy . That means you’ll be sitting in a Capri-inspired space with marble from Carrera, everything is made in house (including Limoncello), and there’s a semi-private room fitted with 3000(!) bottles of Italian wine. Glorious.

The Food:

Gloria’s kitchen is helmed by no other than Big Mamma chef Filippo La Gutteta, known for cooking generous portions of Italian favourites. Think pasta topped with black truffle in a mascarpone sauce, a ten-level lasagne (genius), and cacio e pepe served in a huge wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano (when in Rome, or in this case, Gloria in Shoreditch). The menu also includes small plates, Neapolitan pizzas and the classic, ricotta-heavy pastries covered in chocolate sauce.

The Drinks:

Take your pick from Italian-style coffee, brewed beer and limoncello, all homemade in line with Big Mamma’s mission.

The Damage:

Small plates are priced at around £7-£9; pastas and pizzas range from £11 to £18.

In a Nutshell:

When even the chic and always-classy Parisiens are willing to queue for Big Mamma’s restaurants, you know it must be good. London, it’s time to test your patience, though Gloria promises to be worth the wait.

To celebrate the opening, Gloria is offering a free Negroni with your dinner on Friday, February 22nd and Saturday, February 23rd.
