Gialina is named after my grandmother Nonni Lina. It is a tribute to my wonderful Italian family, who came from a town in Italy's culinary heartland of Emilia-Romagna. As seen in the restaurant's family photos, Nonni liked to surround herself with food and family. My family taught me everything I know and love about food, cooking and entertaining. Most importantly, cooking food for others is a great gift.

Our menu is built around what is fresh and seasonal. We source as much as we can from local farms Star Route, Mariquita & Martin B.

The menu consists of fresh antipasti and salads, delicious thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizzas and a roast of the day. We also have several decadent desserts, all made in-house, so save a little room.
