Beloved plant-based Pizzeria Grano is closing

      After a handful of glorious years, plant-based restaurant Pizzeria Grano will be closing in March.

      The Main Street pizzeria (sibling to Victoria Drive’s iconic Via Tevere) started serving up vegan, Neapolitan-style pizzas in 2020, taking over the spot where another well-loved pizza joint, Don’t Argue, previously operated.

      “After an incredible 3.5-year run on Main Street, it is with heavy hearts that we announce Pizzeria Grano will be closing for dine-in as of Sunday, March 3,” Grano announced on its Instagram page.

      The restaurant thanked its staff and customers in the goodbye post, but noted that “there have been numerous obstacles we’ve had to face since opening that are not unique to our story.”

      However, it doesn’t sound like the business is completely disappearing from the city.

      “This isn’t the end; it’s just the closing of this chapter as we move towards our next venture,” the post read. “Rest assured, we will still be providing the best plant-based Neapolitan pizza in Vancouver.”

      For those of us who love handmade pizza sans animal products, we sense there may be some good news to come—but what that is, we’re not quite sure. Perhaps takeout-only service or a food truck? We’ll await the news from their social accounts.

      Until then, you can still visit Pizzeria Grano for dine-in service from 3pm to 9pm on weekdays and 3pm to 10pm on weekends, until March 3.

      Pizzeria Grano is located at 3240 Main Street.
