Citta del Cotone, 2150 Sumter Street: 15 June 2019   3 comments

Posted at 11:16 pm in closing










I was unaware of this newish pizza joint until commenter Heath mentioned that it was closing. It's down the section of Sumter Street north of Elmwood, someplace I hardly ever go. Apparently a co-owner made himself notorious on social media recently and that hurt business, or at least that's the take at The State. Well, I don't do social media, so I missed all that, and anyway apparently that gentleman is no longer involved with the restaurant, so I decided I would check it out before it closes on Saturday.

It's a very small place, with only one lowtop table that I would pick as a favorite, but there is also some bar and hightop seating. You order at the counter, but they do bring the food to the table. They are fancy enough that they don't have pepperoni as an ingredient, so I ordered the Pizza Margherita (pictured above). I thought it was pretty good. The crust could have been a little crisper, and I whould have preferred a basil leaf on each slice, but it was quite tasty. I could never be a regular here because they do not have fresh brewed tea, but they do have some beer, wine and bottled drinks.

Here are stories on the closing from The Free Times and Cola Daily

  1. Seriously? One basil leaf?

  2. The partner who wrote the offensive comments is a former actor who produced a local movie, a baseball comedy titled '108 Stitches,' from a William Price Fox story. It's never seen the light of day, except for a brief snippet on YouTube.

    Many years ago I sent him a rather coy message asking if any copies were available, hoping he would say, ' Sure, Badger, just send me 20 bucks, and a copy is yours.'

    But no, he just sent me back a curt response saying "Sorry, it hasn't been released yet."

  3. I think there's more to the story on why they closed. Those comments were made months ago and the place was always really busy when we went. They seemed to have plenty of business.
