Brimming with a sense of the seventies, Gloria’s Shoreditch will have you intuitively tapping your foot to Laura Branigan’s pop classic, ‘Gloria’ as soon as you step through the door. A traditional trattoria (an informal Italian eatery) Gloria’s ornate décor reflects an equally vibrant menu obtained from over 180 producers and featuring old Italian classics, like the 10 level lasagne, La Gran Carbonara and giant meatballs dish, Sopranos: The Return.

Positioned in the centre of Shoreditch, and describing itself as a ‘little corner of Italy’, the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and at the weekend, you can grab brunch too. The ‘killer cocktail’ menu is the perfect accompaniment for when the lights dim and music comes to the fore in the evenings. The average piece for a meal here is around £30 – £49.
