Having a hard time getting your favorite table at il Casale, Belmont's top-rated
restaurant? Well, don't pout local foodies as your dining dream will soon
come true: a second il Casale is coming.
The new restaurant will occupy Nourish's location
at 1727 Mass. Ave. in Lexington Center. The liquor application
anticipates a spring opening of the second il Casale.
de Magistris and his two brothers opened il Casale, an Italian restaurant, on Leonard Street in Belmont’s former firehouse in April 2009, three years after the brothers opened Restaurant dante in Cambridge. Since il Casale opening, the restaurant has garnered numerous awards including Boston Magazine's 2012 Best of Boston award for excellence for suburban restaurants.
