The opening timeframe for the Harvard Square expansion of Beacon Hill's Toscano has now been pushed back. Originally Toscano signage said to expect a fall opening, but now the restaurant's website puts it at winter 2012 and notes that construction is "underway." Previous reports suggested that this location might be more casual than the original, with a focus on pizza and pasta. Across the river at the original, the six pizza options include the quattro formaggio bianco, with arugula and tomato, a margherita, and the salsiccia, with in-house sausage. The site of the new Toscano previously enjoyed a long run as Cafe of India.
