Bianchi's Pizza Is Reopening in the Former Renzo's Space at Revere Beach

A legendary pizzeria is returning to the North Shore.

According to a Facebook post from the business, Bianchi's Pizza is going to be reopening at Revere Beach, moving back into the Renzo's space on Revere Beach Boulevard that they had been in (along with Renzo's) until this past fall after saying farewell to its longtime home along the beach back in 2018. Bianchi's tells us in the post that they will be operating the pizzeria on their own, though the bar there will be run by someone else, with the bar apparently serving both beer and wine.

If all goes as planned, Bianchi's will reopen sometime this spring, with construction having already begun on the space. In addition, the pizzeria's plans to open in a space by the Lynn/Saugus line are still in the works, but it is not known when that outlet will open.

The address for Bianchi's is 381 Revere Beach Boulevard, Revere, MA, 02151.

[May 7 update: A Revere Journal article mentions that Bianchi's has gotten approval to serve takeout pizza while it continues to work on major repairs to the space with the hope being that it gets a liquor license for seated dining. It appears that customers may be able to order pizza to-go there very soon, as the article says that "The commissioners voted to approve the takeout business, which can start immediately," though a Facebook post from the place (which will apparently be called "Bianchi's at the Sand Bar") simply says "Getting closer & closer to announcing a date!!!"]

[July 15 update: According to a source, Bianchi's is now open, with the Facebook page from the place confirming this, having opened today at 11:00 AM; its posts indicate that the pizzeria now accepts credit cards as well as cash and that it offers both slices and whole pizzas.]
