MidiCi in Somerville's Assembly Row Is Reopening

A Somerville pizza spot that closed just as the COVID-19 pandemic was taking hold is opening back up.

According to a source, MidiCi at Assembly Row is reopening as early as today, with a page within the Assembly Row site indicating that the dining spot is indeed returning, while the website for the California-based chain also shows that it is coming back to its former space. Back in March, MidiCi closed down a few days after Governor Baker began the restaurant shutdown that only allowed for takeout/delivery, though it appeared at the time that its closure had been in the works before the coronavirus outbreak, and that some sort of remodeling and/or rebranding might be taking place. A Facebook post from MacLeod & Sons Painting Co. does seem to show that the space was indeed being worked on of late, though it is not known to what extent, nor is it known if any menu changes might be coming.

MidiCi first opened at Assembly Row in early 2018, offering Neapolitan-style pizza as well as salads, small plates, beer, wine, and cocktails.

The address for MidiCi is 463 Assembly Row, Somerville, MA,02145. The website for the chain is at

[July 16 update: A press release indicates that MidiCi is officially reopens at Assembly Row today with a brand new outdoor patio in place, and that for today only, it is "Pay Whatever You Can" in which 100% of proceeds from dine-in or takeout goes to The Somerville Cares Fund to help those affected by COVID-19.]
