An Italian restaurant is on its way to a Newton neighborhood, and it looks like it may have a connection to a nearby pub.
According to a Craigslist job post, Olivia's Bistro is planning to open on Adams Street in Nonantum, with the address indicating that it will move into the space at the corner of Watertown Street where Ginger Root had been. An earlier Patch article had mentioned that the manager of the eatery will be Brian O'Toole and the parent company is Roche Inc.; a check on the latter via the opencorporates.com site shows that the person behind the restaurant is Jessica Roche, who is presumably the same Jessica Roche who is one of the owners of the nearby West Street Tavern & Restaurant, according to a Facebook post.
The Craigslist post says that Olivia's Bistro will offer antipasti, insalate, house-made pasta, grilled meats and fish, and Neapolitan wood-fired pizza.
The address for this upcoming Italian dining spot in Nonantum is: Olivia's Bistro, 136 Adams Street, Newton, MA, 02458.
