Molinari's Pizzeria opened in Dorchester's Adams Village over the weekend, reports Boston Restaurant Talk. Located at 789 Adams St., the restaurant features a wood-fired, brick pizza oven and seating for 28, as previously reported. The address used to be home to The Beach House Cafe and Chateau Kabob.
Owner Jeff Cincotta is drawing upon his grandmother's "old-world cooking" for inspiration, he told the Dorchester Reporter, serving a menu of house-made pastas, pizza, meatballs, arancini, and hearty sandwiches, including a meatball parmigiana. One sandwich, "The Grinder," features meat from Moody's Delicatessen in Waltham. Once the necessary license comes through, Molinari's will serve beer and wine.
Molinari's is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Elsewhere in the neighborhood — which doesn't have too many restaurants — Lucy's American Tavern will open soon in a former Hollywood Video storefront at 11 Granite Ave.
