I live near Magoun Square but never went to Lil Vinny's because I don't eat out much. But does anyone have a hypothesis on why it closed? What should replace it?

I'm not sure why it's closing but the food there was always fantastic! The service was always great too. I'm sad to hear they are closing their doors - I'll be trying to get in for one more order of the delicious Ashby.

Such a shame, one of the best places for quality Italian food at a great value anywhere

Hi Amanda, They are closing because of financial issues. A Somerville High grad and good friend of mine will be opening a cool, retro restaurant there in the coming months. I think you'll like it!

K- Such a nice thing of you to say! Their food was great and I'm very sad to see them go. Like I mentioned above, another great place is taking over and I hope to see you up there!
