Il Panino Express, an outpost of the Jackson Square and North End pizza and sub shop, plans to open at 172 South St.

Il Panino Cafe & Grill, which expanded from the North End to Jamaica Plain years ago, plans to open a take-out only branch at 172 South St.

The restaurant is known for its thin-crust pizza, calzones and subs. Its namesake sub is a Caprese plus prosciutto.

Jamaica Plain News has reached out to Il Panino, which anchors the corner of 268 Centre St. in Jackson Square, about timing for the expansion. On a visit to the South Street property on Monday, signs have gone up announcing it will open soon.

Last year, the Jackson Square location hosted a mayoral announcement about cutting red tape for small businesses.
