The original on Windward Parkway is still open for business.

A sign was placed on the Italian restaurant’s entrance notifying patrons of its scheduled closure.

“Artuzzi’s Italian Kitchen is closing,” according to the sign. “We thank all of our loyal customers.”

The now shuttered Artuzzi’s will reopen as a new Italian concept, the sign notes.

“Until further notice, the restaurant is closed for remodeling indoors as well as new patio construction,” according to the sign. “A new Italian restaurant coming soon.”

An employee at the Windward Parkway Artuzzi’s told What Now Atlanta over the phone Sunday its Briarcliff location has been closed for a week.

No other details on what will take the Italian Restaurant’s place at this time.

  1. Sadness! I used to go here for lunch sometimes. Loved that they offered cannoli for dessert. I used to go to the Howell Mill location before it closed, too. Oh well.

  2. Good riddance! Maybe the next concept will be better. Artuzzi’s made Little Azio seem like fine dining.

  3. Another Moe’s frankenfranchise put to rest….although it wasn’t really owned by Moe’s, just one of the founders.

  4. I thought all the Artuzzi’s restaurants were closed. I actually thought they were okay. No, they weren’t fine dining by any stretch but they served halfway decent grub for a reasonable price.

    Raving Brands’ other chains like Mama Fu’s were total garbage though, and I cannot imagine anyone bemoaning the loss of that particular chain.

  5. Ew. I’m not surprised at all. I know they closed the location in Buford across from MOG. It reopened as Parma, which is ok. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what opens in the space now.
