One of spring's most anticipated new restaurants finally has an opening date. Il Brutto, from hospitality group New Waterloo, will bring contemporary Italian cuisine to The Arnold building at 1601 E. Sixth St. starting March 12, according to a release.

The eatery will be helmed by executive chef Erind Halilaj, formerly of Obicà Mozzarella Bar, and New Waterloo’s corporate executive pastry chef, Amanda Rockman. The centerpiece of the operation will be Neapolitan pizza in varieties such as anchovy with capers, mozzarella, oregano, and San Marzano tomatoes; mushroom with taleggio and black pepper; and burrata with ’nduja and basil. Diners will be able to experience the process from the open kitchen, with a wood-burning oven and dough room in full view.
