Harry's Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant in the heart of Knightsbridge, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with an extensive Italian wine list and classic cocktails.

Reminiscent of 1950s and 1960s Italian glamour, Harry's Dolce Vita is a mixture of legendary Italian charm, delicious unfussy food, inspired cocktails, stylish decor and some good old fashioned fun.

Within the restaurant colourful Murano glass, silky Fortuny fabrics, vintage brass fixtures and rich tanned leather banquettes give the room a refined yet vibrant look. Photos and artwork decorate the walls which celebrate 'la dolce vita.'

Dinner is a very relaxed and social gathering. Seasonal Italian sourcing inspire the menus through aperitivi, pizze, paste, pesce e carne, contorni, and of course the dolci.

Everyone was very polite but we were rushed through our lunch, plates taken away while we were still eating.

Our server was professional and gracious but other staff were noticeably not so. A party of seven was seated next to us at a four-person table, crowding us quite a bit. Food was good, nothing special and a bit overpriced.

Great place for dinner. Nice plates, kids friendly and professional service with hospitality. The ambiance of the restaurant area is magical and it makes you feel like being in Italy. Top decoration and Italian attitude. Keep up the good work

If they think you are a tourist they will seat you in the worst possible table.

I have been here a few times. It’s been really good but not as good on this occasion. Waiter didn’t understand our order / English and food we didn’t order arrived with the food we did. However he was a nice guy and was starting out clearly. Staff not as attentive as before. It’s busy that said. Overall nit picking.

Spent a very wonderful Christmas Eve there. The food was tremendous, the service was kind and the environment was so warm. Especially recommend the calamari, ham and melon, lobster linguine and beef pasta. However, the service speed needs to be improved. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

It was terrible, took us forever to find a waiter that can serve us. And it took 50 minutes to wait for a pizza and a steak that we didn’t get, ended up just paying for the water and leave.

Food is great and atmosphere too. I don’t like they charge 4£ cover charge when you are already paying 12.5% service charge. We weren’t served any bread or similar. I just don’t see the point of it and it’s one of those little things that prevent me to go to the same restaurant again.

A beautiful, delightfully narrow restaurant with great charismatic, attentive staff, great cocktails and a decent wine list. Food was lovely, the Pollo Milanese and the pizza were perfect for the type of night so will look to go back again. Definitely a great date night place.

The service was shocking bad. We arrived and the host was extremely rude to us saying that they are fully booked and they can’t seat us.

I argued and said but we have a booking for 15:45 and she said “yeah you may have booked for 15:45 but it’s not really that time. Open table don’t know what happens in reality”. After a while she sat us down after saying “I’m going to cancel another reservation as no show and give you their table.

The service was slow. Waiters not helpful and spilt a drink on the table. The ambience was messy and everyone seemed panicked.

0 stars.
