Update: Trattoria Toscana in Boston's Fenway Neighborhood Has Closed for Now

[Ed note: This article was updated on April 30 to reflect information pointing toward an apparent renovation taking place.]

An Italian restaurant a few blocks south of Fenway Park has closed, and it is not known at this point in time if it will reopen.

According to several sources, including a poster on the Chowhound site, Trattoria Toscana on Jersey Street is shuttered, with its website down, its Facebook page gone, and its phone no longer working. Messages and posts to food writers and locals have come up with little additional information, and there is nothing on the City of Boston website indicating that it is closed for good or that its license is being transferred.

[April 30 update: Eater Boston states (via a Twitter post) that Trattoria Toscana now has a note out front, saying that the restaurant is "closed for a bit to complete major renovations....It may take a while, but please check back soon!" It is not known whether the dining spot will reopen as a completely new place with a new name or whether it will remain Trattoria Toscana; as soon as we find out more, we will post another update here.]

[May 11 update: The Boston Globe confirms that Trattoria Toscana is indeed going through renovations, and a message from the Globe indicates that it will remain Toscana for now.]

Trattoria Toscana is a tiny under-the-radar restaurant with an authentic, seasonal Italian menu including bruschetta, steak, tripe, seafood, pastas, and more.

The address for the now-closed Trattoria Toscana is 130 Jersey Street, Boston, MA, 02215.
