Fodor's Expert Review Gjelina

$$ Venice American Fodor's Choice

This spot comes alive the moment you walk through the rustic wooden door and into a softly lit dining room with long communal tables. The menu is seasonal, with outstanding small plates, charcuterie, pastas, and pizza. Begin with a nettle and burrata pizza, charred snap peas with prosciutto, or Snow Island oysters. For the main course, there's the crispy duck leg confit or einkorn Orecchiette with beef cheek bolognese. Typically boisterous, the patio is a great hang-out spot and a gem for a Sunday brunch. The late-night menu lures an enthusiastic postpub crowd.
