Since this place has been featured in all the popular publications, it’s popularity has soared and walk ins are difficult if not impossible. So book if you can. We tried and failed to get a walk in table but booked for the next day. This is proper Italian food with generous portions and beautiful decor all around. 1950’s nostalgia surrounds you and it is full of good looking people. The cocktails were delicious and reasonably priced. I would recommend sharing a starter, then a main and sharing a pudding due to the generous nature of the servers! We were positively stuffed and amazed at how reasonable the bill was. Definitely looking forward to coming back and trying their other dishes, it was a wonderful experience

Love this place - feels cosy but also special; fab setting, lovely staff and just delicious food! First came for lunch with visiting friend and his teenage kids who are never impressed. Stuffing themselves with gorgeous pizza they were smiling ear to ear : Everything we tried was wonderful, the burrata was to die for..! I came back few times for breakfast and lunch...delicious!I cannot wait to come back again soon, for dinner. Although there is no reservation system, so far I didn't wait long at all. Fingers cross for dinner!

Finally got a reservation at Gloria for my friends birthday and wow was it worth the wait! We were seated downstairs which has a cool classy vibe with loud music in contrast to upstairs floral delight. We went for a lovely bottle of Pinot and burrata heart, ham and focaccia to start. I then had the rabbit ragu with cheese polenta stuffed ravioli - wow wow wow. Best pasta I have had since Locanda Locatelli and that is Michelin star! They sang happy birthday in Italian for my friend and we had an amazing praline chocolate tart with cream to share. Absolutely fantastic and so reasonably priced. Left feeling full, happy and desperately trying to book a table again!

Amazing Italian food and atmosphere, worth the hype! We came on a Tuesday evening we arrived around 6 and got seated quickly - we didn’t find any queue. But once we were seated the restaurant filled up quickly (I can imagine long queues on Friday/Saturday) . Could not fault the service, everyone friendly and efficient. We had the big burrata to start followed by carbonara, wines were lovely recommended to us by the waitress. You must get the tiramisu for dessert it was the best tiramisu we ever had and a generous portion. Can’t wait to go back can’t recommend this place enough!

We had to wait a little while to get in but worth it.
What a fabulous restaurant in every way. Ambiance, staff and food.
10 out of 10 for all
Burrata just melted mouth and the carbonara , mixed at the table in a large Parmesan rind, was delicious. The chocolate tart was sublime.
Service was attentive and lively.
