The vacant building at 1357 Washington Street in the South End, will now be occupied. The Aquitaine Group, which closed the building’s last vendor, Union Bar & Grille, over a decade ago, is opening a new Italian restaurant this summer. The group will open La Motta’s Italian Specialties late this summer.

La Motta’s is described as “Italian-American,” and “Bronx-Style.” La Motta is Aquitaine’s founder Seth Woods’ family name. You can probably expect it to have an old-style, Italian-American, family feel. You can expect the menu to have the classics, such as: chicken parmesan, meatballs, lasagna, and etc. Aquitaine’s release of the new opening explains that the atmosphere of La Motta will be “throwback” and “timeless,” including a tin ceiling, soft fabric-backed booths, and etc. You’ll feel like you walked into an old Italian neighborhood! There will be a 70-seat dining room, 12-seat bar, 30-seat outdoor patio, and 28-seat private dining room. There are also catering and take-out options. There will be around 100 options for wine, a few selections for beer, and a “simple and traditional” cocktail list.

Sounds molta deliziosa if you ask me!
