New Kenmore Italian spot Orfano opens its doors

If you've got Italian on the mind, a recent opening is need-to-know. The newcomer to Kenmore, called Orfano, is located at 1391 Boylston St.

Orfano is an Italian-American spot offering cocktails, wine, salads, pasta and more. On the menu, look for hand-rolled gnocchi, lobster bucatini or rigatoni bolognese. 

With a 4.5-star rating out of five reviews on Yelp so far, the new cocktail bar seems to be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Tim N., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on September 7, wrote, "I went in not expecting anything special. I walked out considering it currently my favorite restaurant in Boston."

Yelper Charlene C. added, “I came during the opening weekend and loved every second of it. The interior is very nice and I highly recommend the cocktails.”

Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Orfano is open from 5 p.m.–10 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and 5 p.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
