I’ve visited Gloria’s twice this month for lunch and on both occasions the service and food have been excellent. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic and it’s a great choice for friends, couples and families with kids. All the staff are very attentive and...welcoming. Their pizza is authentic and is the best I have come across in London. As you can see from other reviews the Carbonara is also amazing but please bear in mind that the brunch menu changes on a weekly basis. Prices are very reasonable and covid processes are being taken seriously and in place. I can’t wait to return! *****More

We went for dinner, the food was amazing but Michele made it an even better evening. Great service from a very friendly and funny waiter! 10/10!!

We had been wanting to come to Gloria for a while now but it was always so booked up - so when lockdown lifted, we jumped at the chance to visit! And it was worth the wait. We had the courgette flowers to start, followed...by the carbonara for two. The carbonara comes out in a cheese wheel and is SUPER cheesy (and therefore delicious!) and I would definitely return just to eat the carbonara again. We finished with tiramisu - which is served out of a sharing tray - and I would definitely recommend that as well. A creamy and decadent end to the meal!More

We had a table of 5 here on Sunday afternoon at 12pm, we had a beautiful couch booth. The restaurant is stunning it really is like stepping into Italy, the menu is to die for and the service is amazing. All staff are walking around...with a smile on their faces. Would highly recommend the Pecorino wine to go with all the amazing dishes. I did want to try their famous Lemon cake but was told that is only in the evening menu, so would love to return one evening. However, saying that I can't wait that long to go back as they are expectedly fully booked so we have booked again for a Saturday lunch. Thank you for making our lunch so enjoyable we loved this place!! the Tiramisu is absolutely delicious.More

Gloria was simply glorious. The food was incredible authentic Italian cuisine and the atmosphere was perfetto. It felt as if we were having a cosy meal in the home of an Italian nonna in Naples. Best of all was the swift and attentive service of...Michele, our friendly waiter. If only we could’ve stayed for five hours, not two! We will be back.More

We had to delay our Italian adventure until next year due to covid so decided to cheer ourselves up with a small taste of Italy. We were not disappointed. Gloria is a beautiful restaurant, the decor is stunning and it was so comfortable and welcoming....The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially our waiter Michael who ensured we were well fed and watered. I can highly recommend the margarita pizza, the meatballs and the osobucco which was truly delicious. The restaurant fully complied with covid regulations and masks have to be worn whenever away from the table and the 10pm curfew was dealt with really well. I would highly recommend Gloria and will definitely return.More

The restaurant felt very covid safe and good practices were in place. We were served by Michael who was so attentive and had a good laugh with us making us feel right at home. The only slight let down was the giant cloves of garlic...on Pizza Fiction that then made everything else taste of garlic! Other than that another enjoyable visit to Gloria i couldn't recommend it enough.More

Yes this is how they operate - so really it’s a matter of getting there early to get your name on the list, and plan your evening so you can wander around somewhere else for a drink or three in the meantime. It’s not a... More

Hi it definitely starts at 9am as this is written on the menu. Would assume it then runs the whole session until 3.45pm as nowhere does it say otherwise.
