Hey, Porter Square denizens, if you're tired of waiting in line for ramen at Yumewokatare, consider this: Giulia, the new Italian spot from Via Matta ex-pat Michael Pagliarini, opens next week. We're told that they'll host some casual friends and family meals in the next few days, but expect free-flowing pasta starting on December 3 or shortly thereafter.
As we mentioned before, you can expect a lovely “Pasta Table” adjacent to an open kitchen used for rolling n' shaping during the day and a chef's table by night. Pagliarini will also serve antipasti, meats, local seafood, and an all-Italian wine list, plus cocktails. The restaurant is at 1682 Mass Ave., where Forest Cafe (sniff) and Rafiki once stood.
