The inspiration for Ggiata comes from childhood friends who grew up eating authentic Italian Style deli sandwiches in Montclair, NJ. The deli was always an anchor in the community, the central meeting point for any occasion that called for friends to gather. Ggiata aims to be a fixture on Melrose & Western, providing exceptional food and hospitality to our neighborhood and beyond.
Ggiata exists to serve exceptionally prepared Italian-style deli fare, inspired by traditional East Coast neighborhood delis. Our mission is to bring lunchtime staples like fresh chicken cutlets and marinated eggplant to Los Angeles while working with local vendors to source the highest quality ingredients. At the direction of LA Native and Executive Chef Olivia Bin, high-quality ingredients are paired with top culinary talent. We are located at the intersection of Melrose & Western in historic Melrose Hill, but our delivery capabilities encompass much of the surrounding neighborhoods
