simple. There is a small space with a takeout counter and a little nook around the corner to get to work on your sandwich. I recommend the pork belly sandwich. Amazing!

An add-on to the insanely popular Gjelina restaurant in Venice, Gjelina Take Away has the same great food of its sister restaurant, without the long wait. Order a pizza or a few sandwiches for a picnic on the beach. Or stop by during breakfast for an egg sandwich or pastry!

Expensive but tasty sandwiches and pizzas with Starbucks priced drinks. I mean if I had money it would be nice but water will do

This what you need to do here. Grab a friend and order two pizzas: I insanely highly recommend the burrata and guanciale pizza! After you grab your order, head into the little alley way next door and sit on the crates and eat away.

The pizza here is out of this world and compares to what I ate in Italy and sitting on the crates gives a slice of a European experience.

Pricey but so so good.

Good place for coffee and some small interesting snacks.
You can buy drinks and food and sit in their nice open garden.

Great Banh Mi and other sandwiches. Takeout or eat on crates in adjacent alley.

Delicious pizzas, sandwiches and salads to take away. They have a little, very casual place outside to sit down. Inside it is a fun place with hip music in the background.

My personal favorite! Take away offshoot of Gjelina next door. Get yourself a slice of their renowned pizza or one of their tasty sandwiches. Yummy breakfast dishes as well.

Loved everything about this place! I hated sitting in the cold alley but it was an interesting 'wtf?!'experience. The place isn't hard to find thanks to their artsy-graffiti exterior.

So sad that they were out of blossom squash(?), their most popular pizza. The guy who works their suggested the pomodoro crudo, which had garlic and basil instead of squash. The pizza was light and delicious with fresh ingredients. The tomatoes were juicy and sweet, which explains why the center of the pizza was soggy.

I can't wait to comeback and try their sandwich!

Service was great and the guy with pretty blue eyes who suggested the pizza was super friendly and social :)

Tip:
- free parking in the residential area
- bring a jacket cuz u'll most likely sit outside on the bench... Or on a plastic basket
- they recommend coming in on Wednesday cuz that's when they get fresh ingredients from farmers market
- pizza is big enough to share unless you eat a lot
- get extra napkins

This cafe offers the delectable fare of Gjelina, but without the wait. Grab a breakfast sandwich or yogurt and a Sightglass coffee in the AM, or a sandwich made with fresh ingredients for lunch. Gjelina Take Away is always packed with people, and their dogs waiting outside.

Gjelina's baby sister take out counter. The sandwiches are pretty pricey at around $12, but made with TLC. The brisket banh mi was packed with a flavorful punch. There are also delicious salads, pizzas and breakfast items to be had. Cool down with some housemade limeade.
