Fellini Koolini’s is a playfully tongue-in-cheek homage to the surrealist Italian director Federico Fellini. With its sibling restaurant The Runt Club next door, the twin patios have made Albert Street off Richmond Row a festive destination for over a quarter of a century.
Fellini Koolini’s decor entertains guests and sets a light-hearted mood for an enjoyable meal with purposely overdone sentimental Italian kitsch. The terrace offers an inviting spot for al fresco dining. The Runt Club is a popular watering hole, with a larger patio and a traditional pub atmosphere inspired by a “post-war Italian home.” Mature trees, festooned with twinkle lights at night, provide welcome daytime shade.
Sharing plates can bring out the most in your dining experience, so explore the extensive selection of Tapas and Pintxos (bite-size small plates) that are perfect for passing around the table. Other affordable Mediterranean-inspired menu favourites include an endless selection of made-to-order pastas and gourmet thin crust pizzas (or become the Pizza Architect and choose your favourite ingredients). The menu also offers daily fresh fish, steamed mussels, calamari, steak, poultry, pork and veal. There are plenty of choices for vegetarians and gluten-free options and a large selection of wines available by the bottle or the glass. The Runt Club offers the full Fellini Koolini’s menu.
