Sliver Pizzeria, a popular pizza parlor on Center Street in Downtown Berkeley, announced it will be relocating in a Facebook post Saturday.

The post cited “unforeseen circumstances” as the reason for relocation, and it did not announce when or to where the restaurant will move.

Hundreds expressed sadness about the announcement in the post’s comment section. Campus alumnus Peter Alexander said Sliver was the first restaurant his older sister took him to when he joined her at UC Berkeley. Alexander said he appreciated the restaurant’s live music on Saturdays and occasional deals on drinks at the bar.

“It’s good quality and I have a lot of really nice memories there, and I will certainly miss it,” Alexander said. “It just depends on where they’re going. … The best thing about it is that it’s close to Cal.”
