Gina’s Pizza – Corona del Mar


Near Palermo, Sicily, where Gina Adamo grew up, slow cooking was the only kind of cooking. Delicious food wasn’t just a part of life, it was life. Family meals at the kitchen table were much more than a time to eat, they were a time to celebrate.

In the 1950s, Gina met Giovanni Costa in Brooklyn, NY, where they married and started a family, and Gina continued her family’s tradition of home-cooking. The sound of laughter and tempting aromas coming from their small kitchen transformed their home into a neighborhood gathering place.

Some years later, settled in California with her boys almost grown, Gina fulfilled a lifelong dream when she opened the first Gina’s Pizza & Pastaria. The Corona Del Mar restaurant enabled her to share her passion with an entire neighborhood.
