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 baker's daughter! Father and 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 Paola's 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 4 out of 5 by Nicely greeted, immediately taken to our table, wine order filled promptly and our dinner orders placed. Then service slowed to a crawl and we never saw our waiter again. Twenty minutes later the bread basket and olive oil arrived. We then alerted a busboy for our salad; alerted him again for the main course and for dessert and coffee. But the salad. main course and dessert were delicious and ample. And the ambiance was wonderful. Despite the poor service we received, Gina La Fornarina is a wonderful place to dine. Mar 22, 2015
