Delicious on every level, Gjelina conquers the perfect pizza every time.  With a wonderful rustic interior, communal and regular seating this Venice hotspot will please even the biggest pizza snob.  The crowd is trendy, the staff is friendly and the chefs are true masters of their craft.  If this is your first time I recommend tying the following dishes. 

Pizza:  Lamb Sausage, confit tomato, rapini, pecorino & asiago
Side Dishes:  Tuscan kale salad with shaved fennel, radish, lemon, ricotta salata and bread crumbs and the brussel sprouts with bacon, dates and vinegar are a must.
Libations:  Bootlegger’s Rustic Rye IPA

Quick tip:  If you’re not able to score a dinner reservation (which should be placed appoximately 3 weeks in advance), head in after 3 for their afternoon menu.  While some items on the regular menu might not be available I suggest you stick with the pizza.  You won’t be sorry.

Buen Provecho!
