The wait is super long, but the food makes it worth it. The place isn't too big but there's always a line out the door. Every dish here is amazing, wish I could come more often.

Delicious food and friendly staff. I had the lamb burger and it was amazing. The pizzas looked great too, and I'll probably go back to try one. This is a popular place, so be prepared to wait.

The foood here was really good! It's a cute little local restaurant that's got the modern-industrial look to it. It has a nice outdoor patio seating, the menu is all fresh foods, and they even have a take out bar next door if you want to order food to go!

Had a fantastic experience. Excellent customer service who had to serve us under our umbrella in the rain. Still with smiles and did not feel rushed.

Gjelina is a scene, but the food is truly incredible and their patio is gorgeous. Try to ask for the patio or get a reservation to sit there if you can. Inside echoes quite a bit and can get really loud and hard to hear. Whether you live in L.A. or are visiting, definitely visit Gjelina for some great American fusion dishes.

Still one of the hottest places to dine in Venice. If anyone is visiting town it should be on the list to visit.

Loved the design and atmosphere of the place, you can see some trendy people there, the food was really good I just hope to go back without kids, it's not the most kid friendly place and the service was snobbish

5 for the food and 4 for the service . Great vibe and excellent rustic Italian food . You can't ask for more . The highlight was the pizzas and the pork meatball

Gjelina is exactly what its LA hype lives up to. I'm really picky about my pizza, mostly because pizza in the West coast just does not compare to the East, but I finally found some that makes a strong contender. And it didn't even have cheese! I tried the mix mushroom pizza and a few other dishes and everything was just heavenly. Great place for a date and really tasty cocktails.

Gjelina: This incredible restaurant is usually busy and for good reason: the cuisine is unbelievable with truly memorable dishes. The menu reflects a farm-to-table fare with many sharable, small plate options. The ambiance is hip, and many times even loud, but you feel like you are in the hottest place in Venice. This restaurant is one of the owner’s personal favorites. You don’t want to miss this dining experience, but might want to go on a weeknight such as Monday when the wait is shorter. 10 min walk away, right on Abbot Kinney. www.gjelina.com

Been here twice! The food is amazing, but the wait is long. We usually end up going to Lemonade for a snack, then head back. Never disappoint and the service is on point!

Pork collar and guanciale pizza are my go-to's. I live a few blocks away and frequent this spot a lot. You literally cannot go wrong on this menu.
