Team Behind Sycamore, Little Big Diner, Buttonwood to Open Jinny's Pizzeria in Newton Centre

A new pizza spot is coming to Newton, and the people behind a trio of nearby restaurants are involved.

According to a source, Jinny's Pizzeria is opening in Newton Centre, with the address shown indicating that it will be taking over the former Cupola space on Centre Street. Our source mentions that the new eatery will have an ownership connection with Sycamore, Little Big Diner, Buttonwood, all of which reside in Newton, with the website for the place saying that it will be a "neighborhood pizzeria" that plans to open sometime this winter.

Cupola closed this past winter after being in business for a bit more than two years; the dining spot featured "Italian fast food" including soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, pizza, risotto, and more.

The address for the upcoming Jinny's Pizzeria is 1231 Centre Street, Newton Centre, MA, 02459. Its website can be found at
