Restaurants around Australia are struggling to make ends meet, with the coronavirus restrictions prohibiting customers from sitting down for a meal.

But one famous chain of pizza and pasta eateries is now delivering the one hot commodity that everyone wants – toilet paper.

Fratelli Fresh, part of the Rockpool Group of restaurants, has temporarily converted to a grocery and "home chef" delivery service.

The service offers already-cooked meals, cook-your-own meal kits, pantry items, fruit and vegetables, bread, alcohol, and toilet paper.

The toilet paper offered is not cheap – it's $3 per 400-sheet roll.

The items can be delivered directly to homes or can be picked up kerb-side at Darling Harbour in inner Sydney.

Delivery, available in Sydney only, was originally free in March but the restaurant now charges $10 per shop.

Fratelli Fresh is also running a program where its chefs are making 650 fresh meals each week to deliver to health workers at Sydney hospitals. Grocery customers are able to donate additional meals for $10 each.

Fratelli Fresh, in normal circumstances, is a chain of eateries that specialise in pasta, pizza and cocktails.

The pivot to grocery delivery came as its parent company Rockpool Group shut all its other restaurants on March 23 due to the government's health restrictions.

Its other brands include upmarket names like Rockpool Bar & Grill, Spice Temple, The Bavarian and Burger Project, where even delivery and takeaway options have closed.
