St. Petersburg’s Cider Press vegan favorite may be moving off downtown’s Central Avenue, but a new concept already has plans to move in—Italian restaurant Bonu’ Taverna.

Cider Press won’t close until the end of 2021, but Bonu’ brings with it some interesting food options. Dishes like “pinsa,” a thinner, pizza with fewer calories and less fat, according to St. Pete Rising, and “jarbonara,” short for jarred carbonara, are on the menu, but there are shareables—like arancini, a Sicilian staple made from breaded, deep-fried rice balls and polipo (octopus)—up for grabs, too.

Don’t worry, there’s an Italian wine selection to go around as well.

The space at 601 Central Ave. has room for 150 seats and is set to keep Cider Press’ wraparound patio for the future, though other changes are expected to be made.
