Visiting the fabulous food options in and around Provo, Utah
Nothing like a good big italian sandwich with fresh Mozzarella cheese.
I loved this choice. The food is authentic, delicious and all made on site. The portions were very generous and their lunch special pricing is very affordable. They were also very willing to accommodate a large group with good service.I especially like their sandwiches which are exactly like you would get in some regions of Italy.
I really liked the bread. Tasty!
It is so good, my one complaint is that they are too stingy with the basil.Excellent food.
the prices are way too high for the quality of food they serve
We ate at Gloria's on our last trip to Provo. We had lunch there on Monday. It was so fabulous we went back for lunch on Wednesday. The "corner spaghetti joint decor" was deceiving. The food was freshly prepared and is some of the best Italian I have had anywhere in the world (including Italy). The pastas were fresh and light and the homemade sauces were superb. Both lasagnas (ragu and spinach) seemed to have been made with angels' wings and melted in the mouth. The gnocchi was the lightest we have ever had. The pesto and the tortellini were also delicious. We started with bruscetta and were amazed by the freshness of the tomatoes drizzled in a perfect olive oil and balsamic vinegar glaze. The salads were plain but the dressings were homemade and delicious. Whatever you do, save room for dessert. we tried four or five of the Italian cakes and pastries "family style" and each one seemed more divine than the last. My brother,who lived in Italy for two years, was with us and he agreed that it was the most authentic, delicious Italian food he had ever had. We plan to go back to Gloria's each time we visit Provo. Gloria's is a real treasure on the Utah dining scene.
Gloria's got so busy by word of mouth that they moved to a bigger location at the corner of University and Center (across from Los Hermanos). The rent is higher there so their prices went up a bit and they changed their menu, but the gnocchi is still every bit as good.
