LA Weekly's Description

Want to make a grown woman blush? Suggest that the reason she wants to go to Gjelina, the serene patio restaurant on Abbot Kinney, is because she wants to gaze deeply into a scruffy waiter's eyes. She will object, of course, claiming that what she wants is the Cavaillon melon with lightly grilled squid, or the wild arugula with sheep cheese and corn, or the cilantro-pork sausage, charred black in the wood-burning oven and served disconcertingly rare, with lentils and a tingly fig mostarda.

Tips from foursquare

  • Bravo on 01/28/10

    Plush, sexy and irresistible atmosphere without the uptight snobbery! The food is dynamic and market fresh. They give a knock out brunch, so try it if you’re in Venice! -Robin Leventhal, Top Chef

  • Eater on 01/05/11

    A neighborhoody spot that's filled with regulars, pick from seasonalsmall plate offerings and some skinny-crusted brick oven pizzas. The roasted vegetables are also a must-try.

  • Bon Appetit Magazine on 03/22/11

    Let's face it - this place is sexy. And the food remains stellar at brunch, lunch, and dinner. Get the fried egg sandwich or the pizza w/ guanciale and green olives or the insane butterscotch pudding.

    Everything is good except the cloth napkins, which leave white lint everywhere. Leave black pants at home.
