Fodor's Expert Review Gjelina

$$ Venice American

Gjelina comes alive the minute 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 squash blossom and burrata pizza, wild roasted beets with pistachios, or Santa Barbara lobster crostini. For the main course, there's the crispy duck leg confit and Aspen Ridge strip steak. 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.
