New Commercial Space Coming To Bixby Knolls

The southwest corner of Atlantic Avenue and East Roosevelt Road was home to Nino’s Italian Restaurant for 58 years before it closed in August 2016. Today, the location would be completely unrecognizable to anyone familiar with the restaurant, as construction is well underway to transform the corner with a new commercial building.

Ramin Tabibzadeh purchased the former Nino’s site from the Cristiano family about a year ago for more than $2 million. He said he is investing “significantly” to enhance and beautify the property and Bixby Knolls.

“We are actually using and salvaging the main building, which is an absolutely beautiful arched building. It has a beautiful roof and a redwood structure that was built in the 1950s. We’re planning on maintaining that,” Tabibzadeh said. “We’re going to be adding another 4,500 square feet on the corner. The project will be a single building of approximately 9,500 square feet.”
