Rigoletto Ristorante Is Opening in Boston's North End

It looks like a new restaurant is coming to the North End of Boston.

According to an article within the website, Rigoletto Ristorante is planning to open on Salem Street, moving into the space where Sapori di Napoli/Cafe Napoli used to be. The article mentions that the North End/Waterfront Residents' Association (NEWRA) approved plans for the place to open by a vote of 23-7 last week, with the vote focusing on a conditional use application that would allow for a full restaurant menu as well as kitchen equipment with a vent fan to the roof. It is not yet known when Rigoletto Ristorante might open or what may be on its menu; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

[July 13, 2015 update: A new article from indicates that Rigoletto Ristorante is now open, and that it features house-made pastas, meat and seafood dishes, and "unique" cocktails.]

The address for this new restaurant in the North End is: Rigoletto Ristorante, 115-117 Salem Street, Boston, MA, 02113.
