When Evviva Cucina, opens its doors on March 18th, 2013 in Westford, MA customers will experience a completely new suburban dining experience.

The new 152-seat restaurant set to open in Cornerstone Square is billed as an “Italian-Inspired Pizza Bar and Kitchen,” playing host to fresh and playful renditions of artisanal pizzas, from-scratch pastas, panini, salads and desserts.

The restaurant will also have a 31-seat bar offering draft and canned beers, unique wines and inspired cocktails. With 16 draft beers on tap, 22 wines by the glass and a seasonal cocktail list, the bar will have something fresh and new for everyone.

The modern and approachable interior designed by J. D. LaGrasse & Associates, Inc. will be transparent in its look and feel with a completely open kitchen and a stone hearth oven at its center. Technology is a big part of the concept, with servers using electronic handheld ordering devices, a state of the art music system and 80" televisions throughout the restaurant.

Partners Kevin Harron, Nick Harron and Cornerstone Square Developer, Robert Walker, set out to create an approachable and scalable concept that could speak to numerous customers.

“I think the modern restaurant guest has become highly sophisticated and wants a lot from their neighborhood restaurant. The restaurant that speaks to the most needs of that guest is doing it right,” said Kevin Harron, one of the partners in Evviva Cucina. Harron should know, as CEO and President of a separate venture, the highly successful Burtons Grill, which has grown to ten locations from Massachusetts to South Carolina.

Evviva Cucina will be a polished-casual concept with a lively social scene, but takeout will also be a focus driven by a strong-online ordering system. A market-like “grab and go” section will also be offered for diners on the move.

“We’re excited for all that Evviva Cucina is going to be. We’ve researched this concept, our ingredients and we truly set out to make the best pizza out there,” said Nick Harron, Partner and General Manager.

Evviva Cucina will be open for both lunch and dinner beginning Monday, March 18th, 2013. Takeout will also be available. For more information please visit: http://www.evvivacucina.com
