A new Italian eatery has come to a section of Boston that is mostly residential.
Eater Boston is reporting that Florina Pizzeria and Paninoteca has opened in the city's Beacon Hill neighborhood, taking over the space behind the State House where Derne Street Deli used to be. The article says that the 19-seat dining spot is open for lunch and dinner and offers salads, panini, pasta dishes, and pizza along with appetizers such as house-made meatballs and spinach squares. Based on the setup of the space, it appears that Florina Pizzeria and Paninoteca should do much of its business via takeout, especially considering that it is housed in a heavily-residential neighborhood.
The address for this new Italian restaurant in Beacon Hill is: Florina Pizzeria and Paninoteca, 16 Derne Street, Boston, MA, 02114. Its website can be found at http://www.florinapizza.com/
