Molinari's to Open in the Adams Village Section of Dorchester

It looks like an old-school Italian restaurant is on its way to a section of Boston that is suddenly seeing changes to its dining scene.

The Dorchester Reporter mentions that Molinari's is planning to open in the Adams Village neighborhood of Dorchester, taking over the space that Eater Boston says was once home to The Beach House Cafe and Chateau Kabob. According to the Reporter, chef-owner Jeff Cincotta is planning to have the upcoming Adams Street dining spot be a casual Italian eatery with "old-world" dishes, including hand-made pastas, freshly-made sauces, and wood-fired pizza being mentioned. The 28-seat restaurant will include a small bar with beer and wine offered, pending approval of a liquor license.

A number of changes have been in the works for Adams Village and the surrounding area of late, including Gerard's Restaurant closing this weekend and being replaced by a new restaurant tentatively called the Landmark Public House, Sonny's Pub and Restaurant possibly being replaced by a new spot called Industry, and Dorset Hall in the nearby Neponset Circle area recently opening.

The address for Molinari's is 789 Adams Street, Boston, MA, 02124. Its website will be at
