The Original Father and Son Restaurant opened its doors at the corner of Diversey and Whipple in 1947. As true pioneers of pizza delivery, business flourished throughout the fifties and as a result, in 1963 Father and Son moved to a much larger location in Logan Square at 2475 N. Milwaukee Avenue.
As our families grew, so did the business and with great pride we opened a second location in Lincoln Park at 645 W. North Avenue. Expanding on a Father & Son tradition, we added private party rooms, expanded our menu and changed our name to Marcello’s, A Father & Son Restaurant. In 2007, Marcello's opened its first suburban location in Northbrook.
Father and Son restaurants have always been committed to offering an excellent and consistent menu at reasonable prices. Each location offers its complete menu for carry-out and delivery, encompassing the entire Chicago metropolitan area and combined, makes a staggering 8,000 to 10,000 deliveries per week. Party Tray menus are also available at each location and are designed to accommodate groups from 10 to 1,000 people at a very affordable price. Complimentary parking is also available at all three locations.
Marcello's on North Avenue in Lincoln Park is considered the "flagship" of Father and Son restaurants. The facility includes a contemporary and inviting dining room, four private party rooms, a cocktail lounge and gourmet bakery. Marcello's homemade from scratch bakery creations are available in our dining rooms as well as on delivery and include everything from cookies and brownies to gourmet truffles and specialty cakes.
In addition, Marcello's offers off-site catering and event management ideal for any occasion. From theme parties to lavish caving stations, family style or plated dinners, Marcello's offers a diverse selection of delicacies at the venue of your choice. Marcello's Catering has been privileged to arrange special events ranging from fifty to two thousand people, and counts CBS Television, The Mayor's Office, United Airlines and the Chicago Archdiocese among our many treasured clients.
