It all started with the love for Pizza and Art! Paola inherited the love for great pizza from her father Gino and named the restaurant in his honor; then combined it with one of her favorite paintings from Raphael's La Fornarina which means the bakers daughter! Father & Daughter used to go on culinary trips to Naples and Rome (the Eternal City is the style of Pizza in Gina: Thin and Crispy!) and eat pizza every day. Then Paolas American Dream became a reality: she finally got to New York , and during her first Job in the city, became great friends with a wonderful Pizzaiolo, Ciro, who invented the crispy and thin focaccia that everybody enjoys in Amaranth, and in many more versions, at Gina La Fornarina! Try our Focaccia Gina or Focaccia Brunch and you will understand how this type of Focaccia became an instant hit and an absolute new culinary obsession for Paola! Paola is also the designer of Gina la Fornarina, since her love for the arts, made her study architecture in Milan, Italy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by We loved the food at Gina La Fornarina. The service was also great. We were very unhappy to find out our gift card of $100 could not be used unless we spent $200 or more. We were forced to buy two bottles of wine that we were not planning to spend. Dec 14, 2014
