Salsa Rosata is THE best.
I like to think that I was one of the first to discover Gloria's when it was still in the 3rd South armpit location in SoPro. Italian food is my favorite. Who doesn't like carbs, cream, and cheese?! Gloria's has plenty of that, plus homemade pasta sauces and and desserts (including very tasty gelato).
What really roped me in was when I saw that Gloria was a person and not just a name on the restaurant. When I realized that Gloria was actually slaving away in the kitchen to delight us with Italian goodness, I became a regular customer.
Even though Gloria's Little Italy recently moved to a more upscale location, they still haven't forgotten how to make good food. I think their prices have gone up though, which is kind of a bummer.
At least Gloria's husband, Mauro still hangs around the dining area, greeting guests and making sure they like what they're eating. Go to Gloria's Little Italy--you won't regret it!
