Gjelina – This Venice restaurant offers farm-to-plate meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is the perfect place to try seasonal New American cuisine. Its beautiful interiors and chic dining room adds to the wonderful dining experience. The service here is also good but since it is a hotspot, it gets a bit crowded here during rush hours. To avoid waiting outside, you must come here early. You can also book a reservation to secure your table and seats.
All of the food on its menu is made from the freshest seasonal ingredients in the market. If you are eating here for lunch or brunch, you must try the maple glazed slab bacon with sea salt, crispy sunny eggs with prosciutto, romesco, arugula, and lemon, and duck with hashed potato, sunny duck eggs, & grainy mustard. If you are coming for dinner, you can choose its group meals that are good for sharing with your family and friends. The pizzas here taste really good. You must try the lamb pizza, squash blossom pizza, and mushroom goat cheese pizza. For solo orders, you can try their salmon salami sandwich or steak sandwich. This great Venice restaurant also offers a wide range of vegan dishes, sliders, and salads. One of their healthy best sellers is the grapefruit and avocado salad.
