A fashion place in a fashion district with very good and interesting food this is very rare. Pizza are a must of this place but everything we had was good. The waiters are cool and very professionals. If you can get a table in the patio it is even better.

Liked: High quality seasonal food, fast service, great setting (especially if you can get a seat in the outdoor garden area), ambience Disliked: They stop serving food in between the late lunch/dinner hour (we got there right before they stopped serving and prepping for dinner), sometimes a long wait [but you can go to the take-out service next door]

We stayed in the neighborhood for a week and somehow couldn't get our act together to make reservations on time (our fault). So when we tried on our last night it was too late. We tried their take-out place next door and ordered pizza instead. The staff was friendly and efficient, the pizzas delicious. Next time we will make reservations... More

In "the" trendy area and with just the right amount of rustic, posturing cacaphony, this restaurant is a perfect example of how foolish people, so long as they believe the place is "happening," will pay far too much for very ordinary food which is served with barely acceptable care. I cannot fault the management; as free enterprise, a business should... More

We came to Venice during a First Friday -- that's when all of the crowds come out to eat at the local food trucks that park along AK. Having just escaped San Diego Comic-Con, standing on long lines didn't appeal to me in the slightest. So as luck would have it, we were able to put our names down for... More

This was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have ever had! The location is uber cool - right in the heart of Abbot Kinney. The area is very relaxed and bohemian but the shops are quite pricey. Gjelina has every box ticked, great service, incredible food and simple but very cool decor. You can eat inside or outside...

Burrata, amazing. Duck confit, where have you been all my life!? Love this place. Wish it wasn't so wall-to-wall packed all the time. I do appreciate them calling us on the phone when our table was being prepared, so we settled up our bill at Feed Body & Soul and walked back over. Nice atmosphere. Good location.

Some of my most favorite pizza and wine on one of my most favorite streets in all of California. Not only do they have great pizza, but lots of other options to nosh on. I recommend a very dark colored Italian Pinot Grigio-- almost the color of a Pilsner-- that I had a few weeks ago. Great for summer. I... More
