big mamma to open italian trattoria in shoreditch

Parisian restaurant group Big Mamma operate some of the best Italian restaurants in Paris, including our favourite brunch spot, Big Love. We’ve known for a while that the group had plans in the works to come to London and now we have a few more details on what’s in store; an Italian trattoria called Gloria opening in Shoreditch in February.

Taking over the Red’s True Barbecue site, the design of the two-floor restaurant will be inspired by 1970s Capri, whilst the menu will celebrate the best produce Italy has to offer – the team spent three years exploring and sourcing ingredients from all over Italy and everything for the London site will be imported directly. They’ll be making a hell of a lot on site too, including fresh pasta, coffee, gelato, home-brewed beer and limoncello.

In the meantime, these are the Italian restaurants you should be eating at.
