A restaurant called Donato & Gianni will take over the Davide space in the North End, as reported earlier this year. Now, the Boston Globe reports that it will be an Italian steakhouse. Donatello Frattaroli (Lucia Ristorante & Bar) is behind the project.
Davide, a 21-year-old Italian restaurant on Commercial Street, closed earlier this year, lasting a couple years beyond its 2011 appearance on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. Co-owner Anthony Gesualdi is now leading "politically incorrect" tours of the neighborhood.
