Fellinis Ambleside is a vegeteranean restaurant and independent cinema based in Ambleside in the Lake District. The owners run Zeffirellis cinema and restaurant who’s site Armitage Online had already built.
We were asked to put together a site with a look and feel more appropriate to the new Fellinis restaurant whilst also offering integration with the Zeffirellis website to enable management of cinema listings across the two websites easily.
Zeffirellis had been built on the ExpressionEngine CMS and Fellinis was integrated using the multi site manager system.
The website design drew inspiration from the already existing menu and logo and the newly decorated Fellinis restaurant, giving a more mature classical style than Zeffirellis that was a better fit for Fellinis.
The site also has an introductory flash animation showcasing various images from the restaurant and cinema.
