A popular Italian bodega in Coolidge Corner is getting ready to unveil a new outpost in Newton. Bottega Fiorentina will hold a soft opening for its new location on June 5, celebrating the occasion by offering free espresso.
The new restaurant from Andrea and Cristina Ferrini will open at 11 a.m. on Sunday after more than a year of preparation building out the interior of the restaurant and attaining the necessary approvals from the city. The original Bottega is in Brookline, and another location in Back Bay has since closed.
