The new Ernesto's location opens today at Somerville's Assembly Row, according to a rep, giving us another addition to a world where a "slice" is defined as "a quarter of a pizza." (Unlike the original location in the North End, the Somerville location will offer smaller cheese slices for kids, owner Anthony Radzikowski told Eater earlier.)
Other than the kids' slices, the only real difference between the two locations is that the Somerville one will offer gluten-free options. "Same everything," said Radzikowski previously. Assembly Row will offer "the exact same pizzas, same recipe, all the same toppings, same exact concept" as the 20-year-old flagship.
In addition to regular pizza, trays of Sicilian pizza, trays of salad, and individual salads are also on the menu. And keep an eye out for specials that only appear on Fridays and Saturdays, like the Shrimp Scampi, a white pizza with mozzarella, scallions, and shrimp sauteed in garlic oil.
The new Ernesto's is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. There's a little bit of room to dine in, and take-out and delivery are also available.
