We found this restaurant by accident as it was close to our hotel (Sarotel). It looked crowded outdoors so we were given a room indoors, and that turned out to be a hit. The service from the friendly waiters was excellent and we never had to wait for anything. The day after we were given the room with open fire.... More

Not really blown away by this restaurant- chicken with rice was too heavily dipped in turshi veggies, mussels pasta was ok but not impressive, tiramisu was decent but the portion was huge, and pizza was good, but we had better ones in other restaurants in Tirana. It's not a bad restaurant, just not a memorable one either. Staff was very... More

Made reservations after searching Trip Advisor. Excellent service from attentive staff, and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Apparently they have different dining "rooms", we were seated on the Terrace, up stairs. My recommendation would be to try it, you won't be disappointed.

I travel about 5 months out of the year, and always eat at Trip Advisor top 20 restaurants. Gloria was well-rated and near my hostel, so I decided to give it a try. The outdoor seating is pleasant, and the staff very attentive. I had a greek salad and a pork fillet, both of which were delicious! The experience was... More

We were recommended this resturant from our hotel and what a great recommendation! We sat on the roof terrace where the servers enthusiastically looked after us. The food is more Italian than albanian but delicious. The salads were huge and for less than 3€! Good value meal and great service. . Will definitely go back!

Nice place if your in the area. The location on the map isn't accurate but if you get in the area near the map point you can ask around and people can point you in the right direction (about 100 meters away from the place on the map towards the center). It's cheap, good service, nice ambiance and the food... More

I have been a customer of this restaurant since 1996. Much has changed in the local, position, food, table linen, glasses and dishes, but what is most important for a bar, restaurant, service has not changed. Bar, restaurant and pizzeria relate perfectly to each other, That enabling the relaxing moments.

We arrived after 9.30pm and were recommended to visit this restaurant just up the road from the Capital Tirana Hotel. This is a very attractive Italian restaurant - the food was excellent - 2 beers, 2 cokes and 2 meals came to just over £9. Waiters were sweet and spoke a little English.

This place is about 50m from our hotel. The waiter spoke excellent English and was very curteous and helpful. The food was delicious, we had two pasta dishes and a pizza and they were all amazing. They happily wrapped up my leftover pizza (they are big pizzas) for me to take home. Would happily dine there again.
