Citta del Cotone, a Neopolitan-style pizza restaurant in Columbia’s Cottontown, announced Wednesday that their store will be permanently closing. A representative from the restaurant posted on their Facebook page:

“We write this with sad news today. Citta del Cotone will close for good Saturday June 15. Please come join us Thursday June 13 thru Saturday June 15th to get one last pizza.
For those of you who have supported us thru these last 7 months, thank you! And if you have never had a chance to try one of our pizzas, this will be your last opportunity!
We wish everyone the best and thank you for your support!”

The restaurant opened mid-November and serves salads, sandwiches and more than 15 different kinds of pizza. Citta del Cotone is located at 2150 Sumter Street. Owner Rick Marzan formerly owned Noah’s Antica Pizzeria in Irmo. His business partner Tommy Price is the creator of Za’s Brick Oven Pizza on Devine Street and Congaree Grill in Columbia’s Five Points.

No additional details were provided as to why the store is closing. Three attempts were made to call the restaurant during business hours, but none were answered.
