A little more than a year after opening its doors on Cedar Springs Road, Peasant Pizzeria has abruptly closed its doors.

Aa sign posted to the restaurant’s door at 3900 Cedar Springs Road announcing the closure over the weekend, citing a revamp in the works. “Please accept our apologies, we are closed for restaurant maintenance,” the sign reads. “We will be back bigger and better than ever on January 21.” Even though the closure appears to be temporary, the restaurant’s listed phone number has been disconnected, and Google as marked it as “permanently closed,”

Weirdly, a recent update to Peasant Pizzeria’s own website indicates that the site was “shut down” by its developer, allegedly because of non-payment from Peasant Pizzeria’s owner. Scope out a screenshot of the site below:

Opened in late 2017 by Sfuzzi restaurateur Robert Columbo, Peasant Pizzeria promised to bring the long-shuttered Italian eatery’s famous bellinis to Cedar Springs, along with an extensive menu of wood-fired pies. The restaurant earned solid reviews from diners on Yelp and Google over the past year, which makes this shutter all the more confusing.

Eater has reached out to Peasant Pizzeria and Columbo for more details on the restaurant’s departure. Stay tuned for an update.
