Eastern Market’s Supino Pizzeria is making good this week on its promise to gobble up its recently shuttered sister restaurant La Rondinella. The pint-sized thin-crust pie slinger known for its massive slices closed Tuesday to put the finishing touches on its expansion including installing shelves and rearranging the dining room, according to Crain’s.

A freshly painted, blue facade matching La Rondinella was unveiled today in a post to the restaurant’s Facebook page. The eatery is slated to reopen on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. with an expanded menu featuring pastas, seasonal salads, appetizers and a bar focused on wine. The original restaurant will cater towards carryout customers while the added space will serve dine-in crowds with table service.

Owner Dave Mancini made the decision to shutter his short-live Northern Italian eatery in January, stating that he faced challenges making the restaurant profitable. While some patrons express disappointment with the closure, the expansion has received a positive response from pizza fans.
