It's really happening.

Last month, the possibility of New Haven classic Frank Pepe Pizzeria expanding to Boston once again became a real possibility, with rumors of a lease close to being signed for the old Papa Razzi space at The Mall at Chestnut Hill.

Today, Boston Restaurant Talk reported via a source that it will indeed be at that location, and it could open in August.

Good news: it's really happening, confirms a representative of the growing pizza chain, which now has seven locations in Connecticut and one in Yonkers, New York. August is a bit ambitious, though; he says that it's hard to pin down an opening date at this point, but fall is a safe bet. Prepare for pizza glory.

UPDATE, 3/13/15: A press release sent today adds a few more details — the restaurant will seat 85 (it's 3,200 square feet), and of course it'll have a coal-fired brick oven.
