Enjoy a big thicker crust pizza, but no unique favors, but don't bother with the unimaginative salads. Go here when you have a crowd of kids you need to feed or you want to sit at the bar with a glass of wine to share...More

Good food that reminds me of home cooking. It's casual with a mix of UCI students, young people and families. There is inside seating, a small bar and patio seating. The beer selection is pretty good. You order at the counter and then they bring...More

Their outdoor patio seating is great for small parties or we have put together several tables for a larger celebration. Most often we come for extended lunches, just to hang out. Their Godfather pizza is the best, featuring garlic and meat (sausage, pepperoni and ham)....More

They have the best red sauce! However, a well-kept secret is something we call a Bella-Linda sauce, which means adding just a touch of white sauce to the red and it is SUPER yummy! Their pizzas are always good and really so is everything else!...More

Gina's is one of the closest places that you don't have to get your pizza delivered while you are a student at UCI. The pizza is really good and the sauce just makes it better. I've also had the bread sticks and they weren't bad....More

Description
From Italy with Love! Serving delicious Sicilian style pizzas, pastas, salads & sandwiches for over 40 years. Started in Corona del Mar, CA by Gina Costa, we still faithfully honor Gina's recipes and traditions. Slow cooking all of our dishes and sauces from the finest ingredients and making almost all of our recipes from scratch. Gina's Pizza & Pastaria Irvine opened in 2001 and was remodeled in 2016. Gina's features a beautiful outdoor patio that seats 45 and pub style seating adjacent to our 16 craft beer taps. We constantly rotate our craft beer selection and offer both familiar favorites and some hard-to-get selections. Gina's Irvine offers takeout & delivery, 7 days a week. We also offer catering for larger parties. We hope when you dine with us you will be nourished and inspired to enjoy life to the fullest, as Gina did. Buon Appetito!
