It seems like a quarter of the calories consumed by children raised in Newport Beach are supplied by Gina's. It is traditional pizza and pasteria that you can eat at every week and never tire of. They have a good marinara sauce and combine it...More

Gina's Pizza is a basic in CDM. It has been there many years. They do things their own way....no matter what you say. If you are hungry and don't care what you eat....it is perfect.

The first thing we experienced was the great service, and then the great pizza. I was surprised at the price- it was less than I thought it would be. We’ll be back.

We tried salad, pizza, and lasagna on this trip, and all of us were pleased with our dishes. We started with a family sized salad which was HUGE! It was really good, but three of us could only eat about half of it if we...More

We used to go to dine in their tiny seating area, but now mostly just do "take out" thin crust "house Special" pizza and a salad to enjoy in our garden home paradise.

Ordered a pepperoni and sausage pizza and a margherita pizza. Both were disgusting. The tomatoes were chopped up and piled on the pizza, with a dab of cheese. The sauce tasted like canned spaghetti o's. Never will return.

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 lifelong 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. We slow cook all of our dishes and sauces from the finest ingredients and make as much as possible from scratch. Gina was great because she refused to lower her standards and we feel privileged to work in an environment with a long-standing history of quality, and every day we work hard to keep Gina’s legacy alive. Enjoy life to the fullest– Buon Appetito!
