Robolli's Italian Bar & Grill closes in Martinez

An Italian restaurant in Martinez has closed.

Robolli’s Italian Bar & Grill at 502 Furys Ferry Road closed in mid-June, said owner Burton Eichel.

“A lot more effort was required then I was willing to put into it,” Eichel said. “I just didn’t have the time that the restaurant needed to be run at the standards I wanted to maintain. For me, it just made sense to close it.”

The restaurant opened in the Bi-Lo shopping center next to The Pass in 2009. Eichel took over the business in 2012.

About 20 employees worked at the restaurant.

A representative for Augusta-based retail real estate firm Hull Storey Gibson, which handles leasing for the center, said multiple restaurant operators have expressed interest in the space, but a new lease hasn’t been signed.
