An Italian bakery that has been a longtime favorite for pizza and more has shut down at least for now, and it is not known what the future holds for the place.
According to several sources, Italo in South Medford closed this weekend, with a poster on the Medford Square Facebook group saying that this could be a temporary closure that is due to a sick family member overseas, though other posters believe that it may be a permanent closure. Calls placed to the Main Street shop went unanswered yesterday, so as of now, there is no confirmation on the exact status of the place; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
