If you’ve ever wanted to live in a loft apartment in a converted factory space, but you’re not a 12-year-old who magically transforms into adult Tom Hanks, lands a job at a toy company, and then enters into a (let’s be real here) sexually confusing relationship with Elizabeth Perkins, then head to Cinquecento in the South End. There isn’t a giant trampoline in this former factory space, but there is a really fun Italian restaurant that makes great rigatoni with fennel sausage. It’s especially great in the summer when they open up a giant patio in the courtyard of the building.
