Morrissey Boulevard pizza place gets OK for later hours; Dorchester Avenue Italian restaurant gets nod for cordials

The Boston Licensing Board on Tuesday gave Puritan Pizza, 735 Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester, approval to extend its closing time from the current 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The restaurant's owners said there was a public need for the later hours both in general and specifically because it's gotten requests for later hours from its delivery customers in South Boston and Quincy.

In a separate vote, the board also agreed to let Via Cannuccia, 1739 Dorchester Ave. extend its beer and wine license to include cordials.

Tsedenia Kiros, who owns the restaurant with her husband Stefano, said customers had asked for drinks such as limoncellos and aperitivos to go with their meals.

The couple opened the restaurant last fall.
