Ronnie's Clubhouse is a casual yet slick Italian restaurant and pizzeria tucked away in a Middle Park's Park Village Shopping Centre.
Surrounded by plant boxes, with mostly terrace seating, Ronnie's boasts a convivial and inviting atmosphere, with tea-lights on tables, rattan chairs, warm attentive service and background music of jazz and Italian crooners.
Inside the walls are covered with vintage photos, including many of Ronnie, a local identity whose family have opened the restaurant in his honour. And bringing considerable inner city panache to the restaurant are 2 of the family members who hail from Spaghetti House Trattoria and Pasta Club.
On the menu you'll find starters like three cheese arancini and salami platter served with warm olives and grissini, while pasta dishes include angel hair pasta with blue swimmer crab, chilli, garlic, basil, blistered tomato & bottega; rigatoni with slow braised pork shoulder & ham hock, green olive & fennel ragu or tagliatelle with pancetta, mushrooms, spinach, white wine & creamed pecorino.
A selection of pizzas include bianche such as fior di latte, mushrooms, thyme, garlic & truffle paste or rosse such as sugo, fior di latte, basil, chilli and garlic prawns, while for Secondi there's Bistecca di Angus; Chicken involtini stuffed with pistachio, pancetta & mortadella or Snapper with creamed beetroot, fried polenta & roasted brussel sprouts.
