    Having had to make a last minute booking as our first booking at The Ivy Chelsea Garden was so disappointing, we were delighted we the exceptional service as soon as we arrived at Harry’s. They accommodated us with a table outside and our service exceeded expectations throughout. The food was lovely and we will definitely return, thank you

    Me and my friend went here on Saturday around 10pm. It was quite busy, a bit loud and the restaurant was much smaller than imagined and quite crowded… we felt a bit squashed. The truffle pasta was surprisingly so amazing !!! However, the portion was quite small. My friend had the spaghetti bolognaise pasta which she enjoyed as well. The dessert was alright, wouldn’t get it again. Overall, I would definitely go back, there’s a lot to choose from the menu & the vibe was nice & intimate.

    We chose Harry’s Dolce Vita for a pre-theatre (Royal Albert Hall) meal based on location, reviews and menu. Everything worked perfectly. A corner table was requested and was ready on arrival. Ambiance was fantastic - busy, but not overbearing and staff were professional and attentive. We had cocktails as an aperitif - great quality. Calamari and carpaccio starters were perfect. Pizzas for main course - thin, light crust with highly flavoured toppings and a side salad with tangy dressing. A bottle of decent Sauvignon blanc was £40 - not bad considering the location. We will definitely re-book

    Lovely food, but would not recommend for vegans / vegetarians. My friend is vegan and the waiter said she could have any of the pizza's without cheese, she ordered one, and of course the pizza came with cheese, and another waiter said they don't do the pizza's without cheese... very confusing/ disappointing experience where she ended up with just tomato and pasta.

    Food and service and value were really good, we ordered the zucchini fries, garlic and rosemary flatbread, the small truffle pasta, pollo Milanese, Ragu bolognese, margherita pizza, chips and green beans. Ooh and for desserts tiramisu and the hazelnut dish. All dishes were delicious and I would definitely return. Personal faves - green beans, zucchini fries, flatbread, pollo Milanese. Truffle pasta wasn’t overly truffley and I’m big on truffle but was an ok medium. Wish I lived closer to go for brunch more often! Service was brilliant too, the team were lovely.

    Food was incredible. Clearly short staffed as we didn’t get our drinks until we had finished our meal even after asking several times. We had to clear our own plates away and as no one came to do this. Not staffs fault looked like they were understaffed and it was a Friday. Had the service been better it would have been 10/10

    We booked a atable for 5, instead we were put in a table for 4, but with 5 places. Incredible that lete they complained that or was too cramped and couldnt place other people on the table beside us! The only thing i could say is that this was a problem of their own making. Unbelivable

    The service was slow, yet there was a lot of staff around, it just seemed very disorganised and I saw peoples food on the side for a while before being taken to them. Good pasta and cocktails. The toadstool looks so pretty but it’s really bland and not worth the money.
