Parla is the name of a newly themed Italian restaurant soon to open in Boston’s North End at 230 Hanover Street.
The location was previously occupied by Il Villaggio before it closed last year for renovations. While the owner is the same, a new executive chef, staff, menu and interior is expected to bring a completely different experience.
Parla means “to speak” in Italian and explains the temporary window coverings with #doyouspeak.
A soft opening is expected in the coming days.
For information on the opening, follow @parlaboston or visit their Facebook page.

it’s about time we got some italian food in this neighborhood. why did it take so long?
In fairness this place does look like it could be very unique and different than some of the others.
In fact – my guess is speak-easy style bar/light food, maybe some Italian Inspiration.
The NE needs another restaurant like it needs more dogs running amok.
Not a new restaurant. Just a new identity for an established restaurant. Happens all the time.
Good luck to Parla! Glad to see something happening at that location on Hanover.
“Parla” does not mean “to speak”. “Parlare” means “to speak”.
“Parla” either means “he/she/it speaks” or it means “you speak” (imperative).
