Gloria by Big Mamma

Paris-based restaurant group Big Mamma has taken the French capital by storm and is now heading to London.

Big Mamma's Italian trattorias, cocktail bars and restaurants (such as Pink Mamma - pictured, Pizzeria Popolare and La Felicità) have shaken up the French dining scene and now looking to replicate their success in London. 

Created in 2014 Big Mamma sets out to evoke "the generosity, humor and simplicity of Italian gastronomy" and like the Mamma, the restaurants are designed to welcoming and convivial. Think laid-back, vibey trattoria serving authentic Italian food - handmade on site and with products sourced directly from Italy.

The London site (previously home to Red's True Barbecue) - as yet unnamed - is slated to accommodate 160 covers across two floors with a design replicating the aesthetic of Capri in the 1970s. Check back for further information.
