Marcello’s Father and Son Restaurant will be reopening its Logan Square location following an announcement that it would be closing it permanently.

The pizzeria closed shop on July 14 following 72 years of business, but will be reopening for pickup and delivery, it announced Wednesday.

“We have received hundreds of comments over the past few days expressing sadness towards the closing of Marcello’s in Logan square,” the restaurant wrote in a Facebook post. “After seeing the strong impact our restaurant made on the community, our family made an exciting decision. Our restaurant in Logan Square will reopen for delivery and pick up only, with a new menu bringing back our very best homemade classic items.”

Owner Billy Bauer, son of the restaurant’s founder, cited building maintenance problems as a major factor behind the location’s closing, but said these issues will not impact the restaurant’s new business model.

The restaurant’s new menu will only include its most popular items, like thin crust pizza, barbecue ribs and dessert pizzas.

Marcello’s Father and Son Restaurant will reopen on Friday at 11 a.m.
