I was a fan of the New York Pasta House when it was located downtown on Front St. Poor location led to no business, and then some additional construction didn't help. I was happy to hear that the owner (who is incredibly kind and always present) was going to open a different place. I was so happy to see Gloria's... More

Three adults had 6:30pm reservations on a Saturday night. We arrived on time, were greeted by the owner and seated immediately at this attractive, comfortable restaurant. The menu had a lot of good choices and a wine list to match. We don't usually order an appetizer, but did so this evening. We had piping hot steamed clams in a pomodoro... More

Roko is wonderful but Gloria's delivers a higher level of everything. The food, service, and atmosphere are excellent. The owner is 100% hands on and remarkably connected to his customers. He remembered that this was our second visit, he remembered which entree we ordered, and was so gracious that we had returned. The meals we had were perfection. Not slobbish... More

My wife & I have made this restaurant one of our favorites. It is a can not miss when comes to service, selection and excellent food. Each of the dishes are individually prepared and not not out of a box. Each dish has its own unique presentation and unique taste.

We just happened to stumble upon Gloria's Italian Restaurant, and were not sure what to expect from the exterior of the building. The building looked like it could have been formerly a fast food restaurant (I found our later that it had been a branch bank), but we decided to try our luck. We were immediately greeted by a very... More

We were taken back just from the outside. Gloria's used to be a bank. They definitely didn't spend much in decorating. In fact, none of us felt comfortable in the restaurant....the food was alright but a little pricey. The people in our party that ordered veal were very happy with their dishes. Veal was tender. Don't look for too many... More

My friends and I have eaten there three times now. The food is delicious, the service friendly and efficient. A great place to enjoy a relaxing meal. I especially enjoyed the scaloppine picata.

The person I assume was owner came up and said they did not have child's menu but would work with us. Were able to get them spaghetti and I got a pasta special that was excellent and... More

Friendly service, brilliant food. Best chicken picatta ever. Doesn't look like much from outside, elegant inside without being pretentious. Don't miss this one!

The veal is great! A comfortable atmosphere to enjoy a good meal. The service was attentive and the recommended specials were on the mark. We have visited many times and will be back many more.
