Cinquecento in Boston's South End Has Closed for Good

An Italian restaurant in Boston's South End that sustained serious water damage in April has decided to shut down permanently.

According to a tweet from @heyratty, Cinquecento on Harrison Avenue has closed its doors for good, with a note from the dining spot saying that "On Tuesday April 14, 2020 Cinquecento was devastated by a water main break on Harrison Avenue. Approximately five feet of water filled the building making the restaurant inoperable. It is with great sadness that we have to announce the restaurant will not be reopening." The note does say that Gaslight, a nearby restaurant that is part of the Aquitaine Group along with Cinquecento, will continue to offer dishes from the now-closed restaurant, while Aquitaine Boston and Metropolis Cafe--both of which are located in the South End--and Aquitaine Chestnut Hill remain in operation.

The address for the now-closed Cinquecento was 500 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118.
