Buona Vita in Arlington to Become Scugnizzi

An Italian restaurant in Arlington will soon have a new name, menu, and concept.

The Arlington Advocate reported this week that Buona Vita on Mass. Ave. in the center of town will be closing at the end of June, with the restaurant reopening on July 5 as Scugnizzi. The post mentions that the new spot will feature Neapolitan-style pizza along with subs and pasta dishes, so prices for meals will generally be lower than that of Buona Vita, whose dishes range from approximately $15 to $30.

[July 5 update: A check on the place confirms that Scugnizzi will indeed be opening today, as a note on the door states that it will be opening at 4:00 PM.]

Buona Vita had formerly been called "La Buona Vita" until closing in 2009 for awhile before reopening with a new chef-owner at the helm.

The address for the soon-to-close Buona Vita (and upcoming Scugnizzi) is 450 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02474.
