Comella's to Open in Bedford Marketplace

A local group of Italian eateries and caterers is opening yet another new shop, and this one will be going into a renovated shopping center that was vacated by another Italian dining spot last year.

According to a post with the Bedford-Business blog, Comella's is planning to open within the Bedford Marketplace this spring, and unlike their other shops that tend to focus on takeout, this location will have a full-service dining area and a bar (along with another section for counter service and takeout), with seating for nearly 100. This is the second new location of Comella's to be announced of late, as another one is coming to the former Salsa's space in Hingham as well. (Currently, locations of Comella's can be found in Arlington, Belmont, Chestnut Hill, Concord, Marblehead, Melrose, Natick, Needham, Wellesley, West Newton, West Roxbury, and Westwood.)

In the summer of 2015, we reported that Cafe Luigi had temporarily closed in the shopping center in anticipation of a move to a new building there, but the plans apparently fell through in the fall and now Luigi's is planning to move to a new home (it has not yet announced where the new location will be). The restaurant had been in the shopping center for nearly 30 years.
