Gina's Pizza

How I heard of this place: My sister!

Type of cuisine: In the 1950’s, when our founder, Gina Costa, immigrated to America from Palermo, Sicily,  she brought with her a special gift which was to shape the lives of her family for generations to come.  Her gift was a passion.  Gina loved to cook, and when Gina cooked people came from far and wide to eat.  There was never an empty seat at Gina’s table.

In 1975, after raising two fine sons, Gina fulfilled her life long dream and opened the doors of the very first Gina’s Pizza Restaurant in Corona Del Mar California.

The rest, as they say, is history in the baking!


Today the Costa family still faithfully honors Gina’s recipes and traditions.  Slow cooking all of our dishes and sauces from the finest ingredients and making as much as possible from scratch. Gina was great because she refused to lower her standards and at Gina’s Pizza we have the same mission.

The Costa family along with our Partners and Crew Members feel privileged to work in an environment with a long-standing history of quality and everyday we work hard to keep Gina’s legacy alive.
