We are huge fans of Gloria, the buzzy Italian trattoria in Shoreditch. Hot on its heels is sister restaurant, Circolo that promises to transport you from Fitzrovia straight to the sunny Sicilian coast. It’s the place to go in a noisy group – the big tables seat up to 12 and you can dine on Sfoglia Norma with Salsiccia Bites (a giant silk handkerchief to share, pasta alla Norma-style) and metre-long pizzas with creamy burrata from Puglia. Book a table outside on their terrace for a holiday without leaving London. Circolo opens tomorrow, 28 June 2019, watch out for our review soon.
