Pazza On Porter Is Opening in the Former Craft Table and Bar Space in East Boston

A couple of months ago, it was reported that an East Boston restaurant and bar had closed and that a new spot would be moving into its space. Now we have a name for the upcoming spot along with who may be behind it.

According to a tweet from @pietrob10, Pazza On Porter is planning in the old Craft Table & Bar space on Porter Street, with a page on the opengovus.com site showing that--as mentioned earlier--Boston Amici Group is opening the place. An OpenCorporates page shows that the two people behind Boston Amici Group are Raffaele Scalzi (who is presumably the same Raffaele Scalzi of Casa Mia Cucina Italiana in Marblehead) and Mivan Spencer (who appears to be the same Mivan Spencer of Caffe Dello Sport in the North End). Very little information has been given on when Pazza On Porter might open and what might be on its menu, so keep checking back for updates.

Craft Table & Bar closed in April after being in business for a bit more than a year; the space had also once been home to Ecco as well.

The address for Pazza On Porter is 107 Porter Street, East Boston, MA, 02128.

[August 28 update: A Facebook post gives a sneak peek at Pazza on Porter, which will include a restaurant, bar, lounge, and patio, while the menu will include Italian-American fare along with shareable bar food options. No opening date has been given as of yet, though a opening announcement is apparently coming "very soon." (Thanks to a source for letting us know about this.)]

[October 8 update: According to a press release, Pazza on Porter plans to open to the public on Friday, October 11.]
