The person behind a recently-renovated Italian eatery in the Back Bay of Boston is opening a new spot in the neighborhood, and it will also be featuring Italian fare.
According to a 2017 preview of restaurants in Boston from Zagat, Jo Megwa of Piattini on Newbury Street is planning to open Ora Trattoriza at an as-of-yet undisclosed location in the Back Bay, though the blurb does says that it will be "steps from the Boston Marathon finish line." The post says that the new spot will feature house pastas and Neapolitan pizza in a "sophisticated" space, with other details on the place not being released as of yet. If all goes as planned, Ora Trattoriza could be opening sometime in April.
Piattini recently reopened after being forced to close in October due to a fire; the restaurant returned with a new look and an updated menu as well as an expanded craft cocktail program.
