Fort Point is already home to some of Boston’s most eclectic and newest restaurants. Recently, the neighborhood welcomed Bastille Kitchen, a French bistro with a unique and charming interior. Before that, we saw the opening of Pastoral, one of Massachusetts only “true” Neapolitan-style pizzerias, and the opening of one of Boston’s best oyster spots, Row 34.

Now it looks as though the neighborhood is about to get a taste of Italy sometime soon. Boston Restaurant Talk reported earlier this year (via @FortPointer) that an Italian restaurant, Buco Trattoria, may be moving into the former Channel Cafe space in Fort Point. The shuttered restaurant and art gallery closed back in “the winter of 2013,” reports Boston Restaurant Talk.

Today, we learned via The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Blog that Buco Trattoria will go “before the Boston Licensing Board on Wednesday August 6th for a hearing on its application for a Common Victuallers (food serving) license.”

Boston Restaurant Talk also reported that the upcoming Buco Trattoria’s manager will be Bledar Hoxhallari, currently manager at Basta Pasta in Cambridge and North Quincy.

The new Italian restaurant will be located at 300 Summer Street in Boston. We’ll be sure to update you when we have more information about the restaurant’s upcoming opening and menu offerings.
