The restaurant was nice, and decorated well. I enjoyed the food but the main was slightly cold and altogether the portions were very small and overpriced. Also, I asked for a non-alcoholic beverage due to being pregnant and was served a strong alcoholic drink. The restaurant did not apologise for this and which I did not respect.

All the staff went above and beyond to make the evening special. They were all extreme friendly and attentive. I would 100% recommend this place to eat whilst in London.

The Truffle pizza couldn’t taste the truffle.

Drinks very good

Service excellent and didn’t have to wait to long for the food.

The pizza was warm not hot by the it reach the table , that was a little disappoint.

The desert was to die for , I would have second but was already full.

The service was excellent however the food really let it down!

The starters were extremely greasy and the mains were sad to say “tasteless”. It’s a shame because the service was excellent - everyone was friendly and made u feel at ease - shame about the food.

Always a pleasure to come to Harry’s. Delicious veal parmesan, chilli beans and ravioli. Complimentary olives, nuts and chocs an added bonus! Excellent service too. We’ve become regulars as we’re only about 400 yards away!

Decided to treat ourselves on NYs day. What a treat it was, me and my partner was impressed with the value of both the drinks and foods. 3 courses finished completely, we can’t remember the last time we did that!

Nice food, friendly staff but a bit chaotic and impersonal. I think the shape of the restaurant doesn’t help, all in length with not much space for waiters to cross each other and also busy service at Christmas. It suited us fine as we had kids so are used to a chaotic environment ;)

Cocktails were very nice. We had the ‘vigilia di Natale’ cocktail. Pizzas were tasty as were the cicchetti and the desserts.

I asked for coffee with my dessert but it arrived before the dessert by which time I had finished my coffee. So, just little things like that added to the chaos. We had to ask for water multiple times for them to bring it. Also, it was my birthday and I mentioned it on the reservation but there was nothing said at any point.

All in all, a nice restaurant, close to Harrods, easy, fresh food for vegetarians and kids. Informal but still felt special. I would recommend it but don’t expect attentive service.

Food was great but unfortunately the service was very slow, we didn’t manage to order any food or drink until we’d been sat down for 45 minutes. We’d been told we only had the table for 2 hours so felt like we needed to leave soon after finishing the main course.
A real shame because other tables seemed to get served quickly and it was a lovely place.

Had to wait outside in the cold for our table to become available. Tables practically on top of each other. Then when I had already asked for the a special happy birthday desert they forgot. Overly priced for what it was as well.

Lovely and kind waiters - pretty sure most were Italian, so along with the restaurant ambience, it really felt like in Italy. The restaurant was quite tight/small, for some this may be a negative but I think this adds to the Italian vibe! Food was amazing - with just two shared starters (between 2 people) and one main meal each, we were full. I recommend Harry's truffle tagliolini as a must-have starter. We also got complimentary olives and nuts before out food. Overall, very happy with this restaurant - would definitely recommend going!
