A new restaurant will soon call a vacant storefront in Adams Village home. Longtime chef Jeff Cincotta plans to open Molinari's at 789 Adams St., according to the Dorchester Reporter.

The space, formerly home to The Beach House Cafe and Chateau Kabob, is in a building owned by John and Peter Lydon, a father and son. Cincotta reportedly plans to turn the space into a small, brick-oven restaurant with 28 seats. Molinari's will also serve beer and wine when Cincotta receives a license.

Cincotta told the Dorchester Reporter that he wanted to focus on his grandmother's style of "old-world cooking," including comfort food items like handmade pastas. He will also cook pizzas in a wood-burning brick oven.

The restaurant will reportedly open before May of this year.
