In a close 15-14 vote, the Regina Pizzeria received support for the addition of ‘cordials’ to its existing malt & wine license from the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA). Residents spoke both for and against the application at the meeting including some who complained about sidewalk, queuing and delivery noise. Multiple residents also praised Regina Pizzeria for its charitable contributions to several neighborhood organizations.
Owner Anthony Buccieri, represented by Attorney Eric Speed, agreed to address several of the complaints including removing its sidewalk benches. The North End institution opened at 11 1/2 Thacher Street in 1926.
