Gjelina is a highly attractive fine dining establishment located right on Abbott Kinney in the beachside neighborhood of Venice, CA. For almost three years Gjelina has been holding down it's territory as the ultimate luxury meets casual, private vs. communal, exquisite, and yet rustic, restaurant. Stand out items on the menu are definitely the pizzas which come piping hot out of the oven just moments before landing on your table. The decor is dark, softly lit, woody, and workshop like with many of the seating arrangements actually created using benches and stools. Considering this place is always jam packed when we pass by, Gjelina seems to be doing something very right.
