Boston will be down one branch of Regina Pizzeria this week when the Allston location serves its last slice on Tuesday.
Stuart Thompson, a representative for Regina, told Boston.com that the closing has nothing to do with COVID-19: the Allston branch’s lease was up, and the pizza chain was unable to reach a renewal agreement with its landlord. Its other locations are open except for South Station, which Thompson said is temporarily closed due to a lack of commuters.
The popular pizza chain moved into the former Sports Depot in 2010, in a historic space that was originally built as a train station in the late 1880s. The restaurant hosted a full bar and continued to offer delivery and takeout throughout the pandemic. Thompson said that there is currently no word on what will move into the 353 Cambridge St. space.
