A new Italian restaurant will soon arrive in Back Bay, thanks to the person behind another Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. Orá Trattorizza (think trattoria + pizzeria) is slated to open soon at 655 Boylston St. It will span two floors, serving a menu of traditional Italian dishes and pizzas.
Orá Trattorizza will feature seasonal and local ingredients in its lineup of appetizers, salads, and entrees, which will include pasta dishes and pizza cooked in a brick oven that the restaurant has imported from Italy. The force behind the new restaurant is Josephine Megwa, who also owns Piattini Wine Café on Newbury Street, which recently underwent renovations following a fire in the building.
Orá Trattorizza’s two-floor concept, located next to the Charlesmark Hotel, was designed by RAD design and incorporates white, gold, and metallic fixtures. Keep an eye out for a potential August opening.
