Stazzione Di Federale to Open in the Biagio Space in Waltham

A new Italian restaurant may be on its way to the western suburbs, and it looks like it will have a connection to a nearby steakhouse--and it also looks like it will replace an existing Italian spot.

According to a source, Stazzione Di Federale is planning to open in Waltham, with the address given indicating that it will be moving into the space on Moody Street where Biagio Ristorante & Bar currently resides. Photos sent of a couple of legal notices posted in the Waltham News Tribune confirm this news, saying that Stazzione Di Federale would be a three-story restaurant that includes a roof deck, and that the manager listed is David Alphonse, who is one of the people behind The Federal at the 1265 Main development in Waltham.

The hearing is scheduled for May 28, so more information on Stazzione Di Federale may be known by the end of the month.

The address for the proposed Stazzione Di Federale (and Biagio Ristorante & Bar) is 123 Moody Street, Waltham, MA, 02453.

[May 20 update: A Facebook post from Biagio seems to confirm that this is indeed happening, as they say that "We have sold our business and will be closing in early June....We are excited about the new changes coming to 123 Moody Street, and as always, give our love and support to all of the local Waltham businesses."]

[March 5, 2020 update: A source tells us (via a Facebook comment from The Federal) that Stazzione Di Federale appears to be opening its doors either later this month or in April. (They say it will be "sooner than" May.)]
