Pizza at Gjelina Take Away – My first bite of LA

Pizza at Gjelina, Los Angeles

After arriving in Los Angeles, my first stop was at Gjelina Take Away down on Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice. I love that place, and I wanted one of their pizzas to be the first thing, I ate in LA.

No matter what time of the day you arrive, the restaurant is packed, so I didn’t even bother to ask for a table. Instead I proceeded directly to the take-out section, Gjelina Take Away, next door. Here you can order pizzas, sandwiches and salads to go, but there are even a few bar-style tables, where you can eat your purchased food.

The tomato sauce has this intense flavor of sun-ripened tomatoes, and the crust is just perfect. The pizzas aren’t very big and they’re rather expensive, but since it will most likely be among the best things you ate in LA, you don’t want to go to Venice without stopping by Gjelina.
