About the Gjelina Group
The Gjelina Group mission is to consistently create a thoughtfully nuanced experience throughout a variety of hospitality offerings. Named for founder Fran Camaj’s mother, Gjelina opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in 2008, serving locally-sourced, produce-forward food and becoming a staple in the Venice community.
Since then, our businesses have evolved with our neighborhood — with our menus guided by conversations and long-standing relationships with Southern California farmers, local ranchers, fishermen, and co-ops.
We now own and operate our two restaurants, Gjelina and Valle, Gjusta – our deli-bakery-cafe, GTA – our take away spot, and Gjusta Goods – our retail store.
