Gjelina is one of the Westside’s best restaurants and you’re craving it badly. But it’s also a complete production to get into, and you have zero plans to be seen in public tonight. Accomplish both and get involved with Gjelina Take Away, the adjacent to-go spot with a slimmed down menu, but all the pizzas and sandwiches to make your night at home complete. The pork meatball sandwich is a must.
