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.

Food is superb. Only criticism is the restaurant is tightly packed and corridor is very narrow.

Our table was next to the stair and the smell of dirty dishes was unpleasant. The food was fine but it felt like we were
sitting in a corridor with the constant food service from the kitchen and this spoiled the experience. Not as good as Harry’s Bar in James Street

Always a favourite for a catch up with friends, seating is a bit snug so better for 1-1 or small groups. Service is always excellent and attentive, food is average, nothing special, but not bad either. Would be nice if they would change their menu once a year. Inexpensive for Knightsbridge dining.

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

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.
