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 5 out of 5 by Food was great. The specials were delicious. Service was a bit slow, but not obnoxiously so. They were fairly busy, but we were seated immediately. They do not take reservations for a group of less than 6. Sep 28, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by 3 of us ordered spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs seemed to be quite old considering how dry and hard they were. The portion was also pretty small. The bread before the meal was blah and the olive oil to dip in wasn't that great. The price came to $72 before taxes and the gratuity they added on, so even with the gift certificate, I still ended up spending $70 dollars, so it wasn't a good deal at all! Aug 18, 2014
