Harden's says

The team behind La Felicitá and Pink Mamma in Paris are opening two restaurants in London in 2019 - Gloria is the first, a 'vintage style' Italian trattoria with 160 covers and a passion for authentic sourcing.

Summary

“If Wes Anderson did Italian restaurants, they might be something like this”; and this “very 2019” Shoreditch newcomer – whose glam, pastiche decor apes a thriving 1960s ristorante – feels “like popping to the Amalfi Coast for lunch without the air travel!”. Definitely, it’s not one for food purists, who can condemn what they see as “overhyped, Instagram-led, bog-standard, fake cooking”. Don’t take it too seriously, though, and it’s superb “fun”, service is “prompt and smooth-running”, and the calorie-laden scoff – with echoes of 1970s Britalian – is “generously portioned” and “surprisingly good”.
