    It looks like a new Italian dining spot could be opening where a popular pizzeria had been until closing due to a heating oil spill.

    According to a poster on The Arlington List Facebook group page, a sign is up for Luigi's Italian Kitchen at the site of the now-closed Sabatino's in East Arlington, with a check on Bizapedia seeming to confirm that the eatery is indeed coming to the Mass. Ave. space. No information can currently be found on the restaurant other than the fact that Lisa Cronin appears to be involved with it and that the company itself (Luigi's Italian Kitchen, LLC) has a Franklin address. As soon as we find out more about the place, we will post an update here.

    Sabatino's was forced to close in 2016 after something went wrong with a delivery of heating oil, flooding the basement of the building and causing Sabatino's to shutter. Shortly after it closed, it appeared that the people behind Sabatino's hoped to open in a new space somewhere in town, though this has not happened as of yet.

    The address for the upcoming Luigi's Italian Kitchen is 242 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02474.
