Ameritalia Apparently Closes at 1303 S. Michigan

A reader writes:
It looks as though Ameritalia on Michigan, just south of 13th has closed. There was no official sign saying so, but as I walked by last night - no lights on, no signage in the windows, and upon looking inside, things were cleared out. Kinda sad but not surprising. The place I'm sure had a lot of carry-out and delivery but not enough eat-in - hardly saw customers there.

While we agree that it never seemed "busy" inside, according to yelp they had a 4.5 rating with 190 reviews.  We actually only went their once and had a mediocre experience.

As a reminder Ameritalia opened in August of 2014.  They had big shoes to fill as they were replacing the popular Panozzo's Italian Deli (which closed unexpectedly in 2013).

Anyway, never like to see local businesses close their doors.
