Fiorella’s Express, a fast casual Italian eatery with a super sexy web address (https://www.fiorellasexpress.com/), is slated to open this fall at 575 Washington St., in Wellesley at Church Square. This space previously served as home to Susu Bakery Boutique, which closed last summer.
Fiorella’s, which serves pizza, pasta, salads, sandwiches and more, lists other Express locations in Belmont, Brighton and Cambridge, and full-service Fiorella’s Cucina restaurants in Concord (opened in 2017) and Newtonville (opened in 2000). Those locations will all remain open, with the 32-seat Wellesley location adding to the roster.
Neapolitan;-style cheese pizzas go for $6 and $11, pasta dishes go for between $9 and $16, and salads start at $4.
Fiorella’s features online ordering as well as catering services. The Wellesley location will accommodate dining in as well as take-out orders.
“We love the neighborhood and we saw that there was an opportunity to be part of a community that would appreciate great quality food for a reasonable price,” says Jennifer Griswold of Fiorella’s.
Fiorella’s arrival will add to the revived restaurant scene in that area of Wellesley, with Smith & Wollensky opening earlier this year. There had been scuttlebutt that a Mexican restaurant was being considered for the former Susu space.
