Tre Monte Restaurant owner Anthony Contarino received unanimous support from the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) for a license transfer at 76 Salem Street in Boston’s North End. The seller is Maurizio Badolato of Ristorante Limoncello 2 which had a short run after opening last summer.
The new Salem Street spot would come in addition to the Tre Monte restaurant in Woburn with pizzerias also in Tyngsborough and Lowell. Contarino noted that his family is originally from the North End and he is looking forward to bringing his high end Italian menu to the neighborhood.
According to a menu handed out at the meeting, pasta and entrees will include Italian classics such as chicken parmigiana, grilled veal chops to lobster ravioli.
The liquor license transfer is for beer, wine & cordials with a 1:00 a.m. closing hour. The restaurant would include seating both on the ground floor and basement.
As for Maurizio Badolato, the original Limoncello remains open at 190 North Street in North Square.
