Take your tummy on a trip to Italy without ever leaving Costa Mesa property. A duo of Italian restaurants sitting almost right across the street from one another are cooking up meals just like mama used to make.

Doria’s Haus of Pizza has been the go to place for Italian dining for almost 40 years. Found at 1500 Adams Avenue, this eatery does not disappoint the pizza aficionado. Pies are crafted with hand tossed dough and high quality toppings. It’s your way or the highway with build your own pizzas or choose the Haus Special. Other menu items are lip smacking good as well. Flavorful pastas such as spaghetti and lasagna are paired perfectly with meatballs or sausages.

Sandwiches and salads are great for those wanting a lighter selection. Vegetarians are welcomed with open arms with plenty to choose from including eggplant parm, gnocchi and vegetarian pizzas. Dessert is unforgettable with cannoli, spumoni, and double chocolate mousse ready to take on dieters.

It’s a Toss Up in Costa Mesa Real Estate Restaurants

Found just around the corner at 2701 Harbor Boulevard, Gina’s Pizza has created quite a following as well. Here the history is as rich as the cooking. A passionate cook, no one created Italian dishes like founder Gina Costa who immigrated to America in the 1950’s. A true Southern California success story, her first restaurant opened in Corona Del Mar with half a dozen locations now serving up goodness near the Costa Mesa real estate region.

Gina always demanded the best and her kitchen stays true to her vision. Only the freshest of foods grace the table with most items cooked up from scratch. Pizzas are tossed with hand made dough and smothered with flavorful sauces. Sizes range to fit all appetites from the single serving piccolo to the crowd pleasing biggapie. Pasta dishes are palate pleasing with authentic recipes and modern twists. Friends find time to meet during Happy Hour where mouths water over both the taste and the price. Toasts also ring out for Wine Wednesday which easily breaks up the monotony of the work week.

Costa Mesa property overflows with flavor and authentic goodness. Tonight it’s Italian food that’s for dinner. Take a seat in either Doria’s Original Haus of Pizza or Gina’s Pizza and dig in!
