Bottega Fiorentina in Brookline's Coolidge Corner to Open Second Shop in Newton Centre

A popular Italian eatery and food shop in Brookline's Coolidge Corner is going to be opening a second location a few miles to the west.

According to a Twitter post (and confirmed by the place, also via Twitter), Bottega Fiorentina on Harvard Street will be joined by another location somewhere in Newton Centre, with the new one slated to open sometime this summer. Based on the offerings at the Brookline shop, expect to see such items as antipasto plates, salads, sandwiches, made-to-order pastas, and Italian desserts at the Newton location.

[February 10, 2016 update: Eater Boston states that the new location of Bottega Fiorentina could be only a few weeks away from opening in a space on Centre Street, and that its menu will be the same as that of the Brookline location. The article says that the new shop will have 16 seats, a counter along the window, a picnic table, and regular tables.]

[June 2, 2016 update: A new post from Eater Boston mentions that the Newton location of Bottega Fiorentina plans to soft-open this Sunday (June 5) at 11:00 AM and that it will offer free espresso that day.]

Another location of Bottega Fiorentina had been on Newbury Street in Boston's Back Bay until it closed in the summer of 2012.

The address for the Brookline location of Bottega Fiorentina is 313B Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446. Its website can be found at
