May 9th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1975, Gina’s Italiano Restaurant advertised its Mother’s Day specials in the Long Beach Independent.

    I believe that 12149 Seal Beach Blvd. was the site of Davio’s Italian restaurant from about 1982. Didn’t the building start out as a Taco Bell? And before the remake of Rossmoor Center I vaguely recall that it may have been yet another restaurant but with a Latin American theme.
